The Idibidi Kids Guide to
Children's Massage


For parents & carers of toddlers and young children

Look Inside This eBook (click here)

Dear Parent or Carer,

The Idibidi Kids Guide to Childrens Massage: for parents & carers of toddlers and young children, is an invaluable book that not only explains how you can learn to massage your child, but includes a section on rhymes, songs and other positive touch games, massage and nurturing touch benefits, and why children experience stress and anxiety too.

The book is aimed at strengthening the parent - child bond and maintaining your special connection that you have with your child through positive, healthy touch and interaction and massage.

Do you have a restless or over-stimulated child?

Are they having trouble sleeping at night?

Does your child get anxious or stressed?

Are you looking for a positive activity you can do WITH your child or children?

If your answer is YES, you have found the right book for you!

Massaging your child has many benefits:

• strengthens the immune system

• reduces anxiety

• reduces stress hormones (ACTH and cortisol)

• a useful relaxation tool

• stimulates oxytocin

• activates the parasympathetic nervous system

• calms your child, from over-stimulation ('fight' or 'flight' mode)

• reduces aggressive behaviour

• helps to regulate and encourage the natural flow of the digestive (gastro-intestinal) system

• relief of constipation, wind and unsettled tummy's

Dont waste hundred of dollars taking your child to a massage therapist when you can purchase this eBook for a fraction of the cost!

Hi Nat,

Just wanted to drop you a quick email thanking you for your fabulous new ebook, I wish you every success with it and have read it from cover to cover and love it. Also wanted to say a big thanks for your advice on making the boys bed time work a whole lot better. I hadn’t thought of massage/positive touch as a way to reconnect with the boys (especially Ethan) to relax them before bed. I have been massaging both boys a little just before bed and it has not only relaxed me as well but certainly created a more harmonious bed time routine for us all. It’s a beautiful way to end their day (and mine) and they are sleeping through the night like babes...Bliss! Thanks again for your advice and I must say that reading your book gave me so many positive tools to use which I will endeavour to keep using for ever.

All the best,
Bec Hall

Hi Natalie
I wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your eBook... I will be using your games at my little class for my daughter's girl scout troop in a couple of weeks. I've been trying out the games on my own children and it has been really great for them...and me - really a good bonding time....and speaking of bonding - my son is 9 years old and just these past 6 months I've really been noticing his need for more independence- hanging out with his little friends more and less time with his mommy and daddy...I think we are all having growing pains because of this...I actually find that I miss him so much and have been trying to come up with ways to keep that connection - that being said, I am now making it a point to massage him more...it has been truly the missing link - so crucial to keeping us connected -and he is obsessed with mommy massages now...I really need to pull Daddy into the loop because sometimes they have a strained relationship - also I have my two children massaging each other and doing the guessing game on each other's backs - really helps to keep the energy good in the house. So, I really want to thank you for your truly helpful eBook and all your encouraging words and advice. I will be in touch in the future. Thanks so much again. 

Be Well,
Mona E., U.S.A.
