Today I have the privilege of introducing Andrea Vargas, LMHC, RPT-S based in South Florida. As I am expecting a little one very soon, I am excited to listen to everything she has to say about her expertise; play therapy. We discuss a little more in-depth what Infant Massage Technique is and how it can benefit babies and parents in this first part of their bonding relationship. Touch is incredibly important for humans and it has been proved through research time and time again how it helps babies thrive.
For anybody interested in looking into this topic a little further Andrea recommends these books:
“Touch in Child Counseling and Play Therapy” and “The Magic Rainbow Hug” by Janet Courtney, Ph.D.
