Babies are sensitive and aware. The birth process and the first 12 weeks of life are highly influential on baby's brain development.  Attachment and bonding between baby and parent is nourished by engaging in face to face interactions, such as eye contact, facial expressions and lots and lots of physical contact, especially skin to skin.

TummyTime!™ Method, Baby Massage, Baby Reflexology, & Gentle Manual Therapy have a significant positive impact on your baby's development

Bring your baby "as they are" to a session.  Please do not manipulate feeding or napping schedules prior to an appointment.   This helps me work with your baby's natural rhythms.

  By the end of the first year of life, babies are able look at things from multiple levels and perspectives.  They are able to improvise and put things into context on a regular basis.    It is all based on how they have been handled, talked to and interacted with by their caregivers since birth (and really, since conception!).


Every baby is unique and amazing.
