Loving Hands: The Traditional Art of Baby Massage
Back in print, and in paperback for the first time, this book presents the ancient art of baby massge as described by the renowned obstetrician Frederick Leboyer, accompanied by his own photographs. "Loving Hands" fuses the wisdom and knowledge Dr. Leboyer has absorbed in the East with the personal, poetic expression -- in words and photographs -- of his own unique insight. The book explains the simple techniques of massage by following a young mother, Shantala, whom the author met, observed, and photographed with with her babies in Calcutta. As watch her communicate her love and strength to her children through the primal language of touch, we learn how in the weeks and months following birth we, too, can use the flowing rhythms of the art of baby massage to communicate our love and strength to our infants.
