Why & Benefits

Water is essential to life and has spiritual meanings associated with purification, protection and healing. The healing effects of water nourish, clean, and calm our bodies. Babies benefit from the holistic and therapeutic effects of float therapy and infant massage.

  • The sensation of floating in warm water puts babies completely at ease and helps them build an abundant sense of safety.
  • Muscular strength is increased through the water’s gentle resistance.
  • Subtle water pressure on the chest can increase lung capacity by strengthening intercostal muscles and the respiratory system
  • Support of mental and motor skills of babies. Water helps babies move more consciously improving balance and coordination.
  • A baby’s brain and muscle development depends on how much you move them. Water helps babies move more consciously, improving balance and coordination.
  • As babies kick around in the water, the small rocking waves they create will help to improve their balance and coordination and ultimately, support their ability to sit, crawl and walk. Even if your baby falls asleep in the water, the rocking will continue with his/her rhythmic breathing.
  • Movement through the water has a positive effect on the digestive and circulatory systems. It helps to make your baby eat more, have better sleep and solve the problem of constipation.
