Communication and Touch

Touch is a baby's first language, and is the first sense to develop in the womb. Loving touch and stimulation is necessary for healthy physical and mental development. Communication plays a fundamental role
in development and initial communication
is massively tactile. Touch establishes
a strong relationship and this essential non-verbal communication will lead to verbal communication.

Frequent eye contact and conversation about anything and everything, as well
as loving touch, will help babies brains
and their ability to talk. Eye to eye contact
is touching at a distance.

The International Association of Infant Massage is a global not for profit organisation whose purpose is to promote positive nurturing touch through training, education and research.
