In a single flowing stroke, move each thumb simultaneously downwards and outwards, along the upper part of the cheek bone to the sides of the face. STROKING THE LOWER CHEEK BONES Position your thumbs on either side of the bridge of the nose again, this time slightly lower down. Make a single sweeping stroke with each thumb from this position along the lower part of the cheek bone and out to the sides of the face.

Circle your hands several times simultaneously, the right hand moving clockwise, the left hand, anticlockwise. Move your hands around the buttocks slightly as you circle. When you reach the ankle, begin the stroke on the other leg using your other hand. One hand should always stay in contact with your baby. Repeat several times. FINISHING STROKES ON THE BACK OF THE BABY THE LEGS BACK EFFLEURAGE STROKES DOWN THE BODY Place your left hand on your baby’s right shoulder. Using the whole surface of your hand, stroke diagonally down the back, over the left buttock, and down the left leg to the foot.

Some children actually dislike light touch, so firm pressure is needed. If you are unsure about the pressure of your strokes, watch your baby’s reaction and ask your doctor or physiotherapist for advice. If your child has Down’s Syndrome, his muscle tone may be low. Regular full-body massages, incorporating stretches (see pages 18–39), help to increase muscle tone. Alternatively, he may have high muscle tone; in this case, massage can relax his muscles. If he has physiotherapy, perform a quick massage before the sessions – warming the muscles before physiotherapy may enhance the work done during a session.
