Why is massage so important for your baby or child
Ayurveda is one of the secrets behind the physical strength, intellectual vigor, creativity and longevity of our ancient forefathers in Bharat. Ayurveda highly recommends massaging your baby or child regularly. It relaxes the baby, strengthens her body, tones up her skin and boosts immunity. Massage helps to develop bone and muscles, and channelize the body energies and remove blockages. It also helps the child develop emotionally and bond with her parents. The importance of massage cannot be under-stated.
Right massage oil is important - as it gets absorbed in the body
Ayurveda lays great emphasis on the type of oil used, and there are a wide range of massage oil formulations in Ayurveda targeting individual body types and health conditions. While massaging your baby, choice of oil can be very important, as it gets absorbed into the baby’s body –
1)Through the skin – the skin is relatively more permeable to fat soluble substances than water soluble substances. Fat soluble substances can pass through the outer layer of skin and into the bloodstream. Ayurveda uses this principle to treat vata related disorders such as joint pains with oil massage. Oil absorption may also take place through hair follicles and sweat ducts.
2)Through breathing – Aromatherapy uses this principle to treat disease or enhance well being. Aromatic oils can enter the body through the nasal passages and also stimulate brain cells through the olfactory nerves.
Considering the emphasis placed on using the right massage oil in Ayurveda with unique medicinal qualities of various herb & oil combinations, combined with modern scientific understanding, we find it a matter of concern that conventional baby massage oils contain several chemical ingredients including mineral oil. Synthetic massage oil may introduce junk or even harmful ingredients in the baby’s delicate body.
