Abil-OT Kids Therapy is excited to offer Infant Massage!

For infants and babies birth to 12 months.


From the moment your child is born, parents are encouraged to hold their baby close to their bare skin. Skin-to-skin care provides immediate comfort as well as rich sensory input. Studies show that infant massage has a profoundly positive effect on your baby's physical health.  



For parents, infant massage will increase confidence, improve your ability to read your baby’s cues, bond with your child, develop health attachment that supports long-term health, feel calm and relaxed, and build trust and security with your baby.
