Simple Steps for Infant & Child Massage (from 3 months to 1 year old)

Massage to Help Relieve Upset Tummy

Is your little one gassy or spitting up a lot after feedings? Try this massage technique. Before your baby eats, massage the entire stomach area, lightly yet firmly, in a clockwise direction.


(1) Use small amount of edible oil, as the baby's fingers will probably go into the mouth. Corn, vegetable or virgin olive oils are great. Do not use medicated oil.
(2) Facing the baby, start massaging with your fingertips, beginning below the ribs, from left to right.
(3) Use circular motions, or rainbow-shape strokes. Avoid genital area. This helps the digestion, and helps to pass the gas. (See illustration above)
Cautions :

Moving the gas can be painful, so be sure to massage slowly. This should help keep the food down, and with less discomfort. You can do this for a few minutes before each meal, and doing it before bed makes for a better night's sleep!


Its really worth investing in this entire set of Distilled Medicinal Essential Oil (7 pcs) . I have created 2 very own items : (1) Whitening Facial Mask and (2) Azema Cream. Tried and tested, VERY EFFECTIVE & PRICES ARE VERY REASONABLE !! Just imagine, you pay $200+ for a mask from S...K... something and this one (the jam jar on the left) only cost less than $3.00. It would last you at least 3 months.

My mum recently suffered from serious pain from the hip all the way to her ankle. I applied the "3" types essential oil (mix with moisturize cream) and massage on her . She feels very much better after the 1st application and is doing better now. Btw, she is already 73 years old but still briskwalk every morning at 5am.

Below extracted from Bryan's blog. You will find more beauty and DIY tips from his blog.

1 drop each; Lemongrass cocohin; lavendula vera , peppermint avenis on 20cent size moisturize cream, blend with index finger and massage at the ache or tense area.

The blend could be used in times of pain and tension at neck shoulder back or joints pain. The oil can penetrate to the blood cell and nerves to relax then and also warm the area. This improves blood flows. And certain oil has the properties of anti-inflammation and soothing. Target to remove the damp energy working long term in air con office.This is a traditional blend of warming essential oils specially formulated for active bodies.Office sickness like Neck , shoulder, Knee Cap etc pain.
