Australia has opened its first baby spa, which offers appointments for babies as young as two-days-old.
Baby Spa Perth offers hydrotherapy sessions, infant massage and professional support.
“There is often a misconception with the name ‘baby spa’ which leads people to presume the service offered is a beauty treatment. This couldn’t be further from the truth,” says the spa’s director Kavita Kumar.
“Hydrotherapy stimulates all the senses, the comforting experience strengthens muscles and bone structure of babies whilst providing an environment where they can build confidence in the water and learn to control their reflexes.
“The water immersion improves sleep quality, reduces discomfort from colic, wind and constipation whilst regular visits benefit the cardiovascular and respiratory systems,” she said.
