Reader Reviews
IT SOOTHES MY BABY, August 9, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from new york
As a new parent, i want the best for my little girl. I purchased this book and started practicing the massage on my baby when she was about one month old. She really enjoys it, it is like it reinforces the mother baby bond. It explains very clearly what to do mostly by pictures and it also has some thoughtful poems included in the book. A great choice, i highly recommend it.

A loving treat for both baby and parent, April 4, 2000
Reviewer: adelie (see more about me at from Sierra Madre, CA
Frederick LeBoyer is the French obstetrician who pioneered the "gentle birth" process with his first book, "Birth Without Violence." Having succeeded in getting babies born gently, into a dim, quiet, warm environment, he has now taken the logical next step with this book.

Baby massage is a practice begun in India, and simply stated, involves sitting with the baby on your lap and massaging "it" gently with oil. There is very little text in this book - it's mostly photographs, of a beautiful young Indian mother, sitting on the ground with her baby on her outstretched legs. The photographs are sequential and show the various moves - gently tugging at opposite arms and legs, rubbing circular motions on the torso, massaging tiny hands and feet, and so on.

The baby is clearly blissed out in the pictures, as yours will be, too if you try this! And the very act of spending that kind of time in close communion with your baby will elevate your soul as well as the baby's.

I recommend this book to all new parents and give it as a "Welcome to the world" gift when their babies are born.

Reader Review
This is THE book on infant massage. October 2, 1998
Reviewer: Carol Dreyer, LMT, CIMI from Portland Oregon
I am a Certified Infant Massage Instructor through the International Association of Infant Massage. Vimala Schneider McClure started the organization and developed the techniques you will find in this book. This is an excellent book and every parent/caregiver would benefit from reading it and incorporating the techniques into their life. Vimala addresses many important aspects of parenting and bonding and includes a section for babies with special needs. Infant massage is a magical gift that every baby/parent is worth experiencing. Enjoy!

Reader Review
One of the best purchases I have made..., October 17, 2002
Reviewer: Jill Smith from Winston-Salem, NC, USA
This has been one of the best purchases I have made since the birth of my son nine months ago. It has taught me how to massage him in a way that has helped me gain his trust. Not only does it relax him before bed, but it gives us some precious bonding time that can't be matched! I sing his favorite song while I do it, and someday, when he can talk, I'm sure he will sing along. I have suggested this book to all of my 'Mom' friends, and I urge all Mom's (and Dad's) to buy this one!!

Book Description
Beginning in infancy, a child's vitality, self-confidence, behavior, and overall healthy development may be greatly enhanced by a few minutes of gentle massage by a parent on a regular basis, claims the author of this breakthrough guide to child and baby massage. A recent article in Time magazine also suggested that infant massage may be an important developmental tool. Here, easy-to-follow instructions and illustrations provide simple techniques for massaging babies, toddlers, and young children. Busy parents will appreciate the streamlined methods for performing effective massage in just five minutes, even if they've never done it before. Robert Toporek is creator and president of the Children's Project, which offers massage and other services to underprivileged children in the Philadelphia area. He trained at the Esalen Institute and with Ida P. Rolf, founder of the Rolf method of Structural Integration (see Rolfing ™ and Structural Integration). 150 two-color illustrations.

Customer Reviews
Massage and Fun, July 17, 2001
Reviewer: Cynthia L. Dabback from Pottstown, PA United States
I have known Robert for 15 years. He has Rolfed (type of massage, see Rolfing ™ and Structural Integration) my husband, our twin girls 8 years old (since they were 4 weeks old and of course me.

Reading this book has reinforced a lot of what I have learned from Robert. But more importantly I learned a lot more of what I didn't know. I have found this book easy to read. I really liked the step by step instructions. My girls really like trying different kinds of oils. The drawings are helpful for those of us who don't know all the parts of our anatomy, like me.

My children and I had a blast with this book.

I have twin girl's 8 years old. They couldn't wait until I learned another part of their bodies to massage. They would say me first! No me first!

The girls are both in gymnastics, competing this year at Level 6. I give them their message before each competition. It calms them down and focuses them on what they need to do. The one says "look out world I am ready now!" and leaps off the bed!

They give me messages. A few times for full 35 minutes. I can't get that from my husband; and from talking to others they say the same thing "my spouse will only message me for 5 minutes, if I'm lucky." Massaging my girls is so fulfilling. The loving care I can give them is priceless. This book really makes a difference.

Reader Review
The Little Baby Massage Book, January 26, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from Santa Cruz, CA.
This book has wonderful information on Chinese "TUINA" Acupressure and Aromatherapy. The author studied in China, and the valuable information taken from both Chinese Medicine Doctors and a very well known Registered Nurse Jane Buckle, author of "Clinical Aromatherapy in Nursing" of whom wrote the foreword in this book. There is much credible information in the book, great for new mothers and for those who simply want to use acupressure to help their children! Sincerely, LOVED THE BOOK!! AMTA (AMERICAN MASSAGE THERAPY JOURNAL IS DOING A FRONT COVER ARTICLE ON THIS BOOK SPRING 2001. A NATIONAL MEDICAL ORGANIZATION, BOOK REVIEW WILL FOLLOW IN SEPTEMBER 2001 ISSUE OF THE MASSAGE THERAPY JOURNAL.
