The attachment bond is the emotional connection formed by wordless communication between a baby and their primary caretaker. While attachment occurs naturally, the quality of the bond varies. This form of communication affects the way our children develop mentally, physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. Creating a secure attachment bond differs from creating a bond of love. Babies need to communicate in a non-verbal emotional exchange to enable them to feel understood, secure and balanced. Baby massage gives the opportunity to get better at recognising and understanding babies needs and cues. A secure attachment bond ensures that the child will feel secure, understood and be calm enough to experience the optimal development of their nervous system.
