Infant massage educator Suzanne P. Reese is releasing a CD, Talk to Me, with music intended to be sung along while massaging infants. The album is a musical follow-up to her book Baby Massage: Soothing Strokes for Healthy Growth.
According to Reese, who lives in Ramona, “Baby massage is an age-old practice with scientifically documented benefits. Nurturing, compassionate touch positively impacts the baby’s physiological and neurological development, helps to soothe gas and colic symptoms, promotes restful sleep, and facilitates healthy attachment and bonding [with caregivers].”
The Talk to Me CD, on the Pacific Coast Jazz label, is available individually at music retailers or with Reese’s book at compassionatechild.com. Reese will host a free infant massage class from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 27, at the Carmel Mountain Ranch/Sabre Springs Recreation Center.
