Some of the massage benefits for baby is with the promotion of parent-child bonding and secure attachment. This also helps with a baby's emotional and cognitive development. Massage also supports the stimulation of the digestive and circulatory systems, helps to reduce the discomfort of constipation and colic.

Holding and treating a baby in a tranquil environment such as hydrotherapy helps to stimulate the growth of brain networks and promote all aspects of a baby’s physical, social/emotional and cognitive development.

And the parents are becoming acquainted with the behavioral states and cues of their baby. The spa provides quality bonding time for both parent and baby via interaction, observation, relaxation, and communication and with improved parenting skills, it helps lead to improved self-esteem and confidence and assists with post-natal depression.

The spa baby massage uses pure, high quality, unscented grape-seed oil which is absorbed by and helps to moisturizes the baby’s skin. The spa even has its own patented flotation device, the Bubby, which helps to keep babies comfy and safe. The baby spa experience allows parents and babies to bond in a calm, relaxing environment for both parties. Not only is watching your baby at the spa adorable, but hydrotherapy for babies is beneficial to their health. This is because, in the water, babies can move freely, which helps them develop both muscle and bone strength. With hydrotherapy, the sensation of floating in warm water puts babies completely at ease and can help to promote some key benefits to include muscular and skeletal strength which is increased through the water’s gentle resistance. Movement in the water has a positive effect on the digestive and circulatory systems, which can reduce meconium levels in babies and lower the risk of jaundice three or four days after birth. The subtle water pressure on the baby's chest can also help to increase lung capacity by strengthening intercostal muscles and the respiratory system. Regular visits can benefit the cardiovascular system. The babies innate swimming reflexes are stimulated, and their co-ordination is developed as they learn to control their movements. Parents cannot get enough of the baby spa experience, and it's no wonder with all the benefits the spa provides for both the babies and the parents, not to mention just how cute the babies look in their floatation devices.
