The importance of the sense of touch and massage in developing children’s abilities

The sense of touch is one of the most developed senses in a child because it begins with him while he is a fetus in his mother’s womb, and the mother communicates with her child after birth through continuous touch that helps him to grow and develop positively. 

Studies have shown that physical contact between mother and child through regular massage helps brain cells grow properly as the brain grows rapidly in the first year of the child’s life.  

Massage increases the clarity of mind, alertness and attention of your child, and makes him more attractive to social communication. 

And because your baby’s first emotional sensations are related to physical contact, regular massage will make him more able to develop his emotional and intellectual capabilities as he grows older. 

Do not neglect, dear mother, the habit of massaging your baby with Johnson’s baby oil, especially after bathing, as it is an important routine to develop your child’s abilities as well as to obtain cleanliness and relaxation.
