Massage stimulation is often referred to by some other terms of touch stimulation, infant massage, etc. Massage stimulation is a combination of multi-modal stimulation forms, i.e. touch (tactile) and motion (kinesthetic) performed by parents, health workers or other family members. Furthermore, at the same time parents also auditory stimulation (hearing, by inviting babies to talk during a massage), visual stimulation (sight, by making eye contact while massaging), and others.
Basically, the purpose of baby massage or massage stimulation is to optimize the growth and development of the baby by providing stimulation of touch, motion, and other stimulation combinations. Massage stimulation is done in a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. The massage length is about 15 minutes and should be given regularly. There is no standard limit on the frequency of massage per day. However, parents should make massage stimulation a routine and if possible three times a day.
