How to Calm Children through Massage.
Bernal, Gilda Rios
Childhood Education, v74 n1 p9-14 Fall 1997
Studied the impact of massage three times per week on infants' adjustment to a group care setting. Subjects were infants from at-risk Chilean homes who displayed negative emotional behaviors. Found that massaged infants showed less repetitive crying, more tranquil sleep and muscular relaxation, better social adjustment, and improved feeding habits. Includes massage instructions in English and Spanish. (KB)
