IAIM’s Research Reveals Significant Benefits of Infant Massage for Premature Babies


In a groundbreaking study conducted by the International Association of Infant Massage, recent research has revealed significant benefits of infant massage for premature babies. The study, which involved numerous hospitals and healthcare professionals, found that regular, gentle massage can aid in weight gain, improve sleep patterns, and enhance overall development in premature infants. The findings underscore the importance of incorporating infant massage into neonatal care. IAIM is now advocating for more widespread training of healthcare providers in the techniques of infant massage, emphasizing its potential to transform neonatal care practices globally.
