Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has short-term advantages of gentle touch and massage for healthy term infants and for some growing and medically stable pre-term newborns. Parents of preemies gain confidence and greater security in their handling skills through healing loving touch. Parents of the preterm infant also benefit because infant massage enhances bonding with their child and increases confidence in their parenting skills. By performing these techniques on infants and teaching parents in the NICU we are enhancing the communication and stronger senses of touch.
