For the next installment in my Benefits of Massage Therapy series, I want to talk a little bit about infant massage.
As an infant massage instructor, I teach parents and caregivers how to massage their babies. Infant massage has many benefits, not only for the babies, but for the person doing the massage.
One thing that many people don't think about when they go in for a massage is what is being used on their skin. Most people just assume that whatever the therapist is using on them is good for them. Depending on where you go, this may not be the case.
What you put on your body is just as important as what you put into it. While many people are becoming more concerned with eating healthy, not as many are aware of all of the harmful things that are found in our skin products. There are a lot of things that we are told to look out for, but I want to talk about what is good to use on your skin.
