This book gives step by step explanations of shantala massage techniques. This traditional Indian art, handed down from mother to daughter, provides deep relaxation for new-born babies by imitating the sensations found in the mother’s protective womb. It helps eliminate muscular tension and establish favoured communication between mother and child.
Using simple explanations and lovely black and white photos of an Indian mother massaging her baby, Frédérick Leboyer, who has devoted his life to promoting violence-free birth, teaches the different techniques of shantala massage. He provides numerous practical tips: When to use massage? From what age? How long should the massage take? What oil should be used? Frédérick Leboyer also talks of birth, “the most extraordinary, the most powerful and the most profound of adventures.” A lovely book to “help a child accept the world and let him smile at life.”
