The emollient massage, a moment of special care

1. The lower limbs

Massage from the ankle to the thigh, starting from behind and finishing in front.

2. The upper limbs

Massage from the wrist to the armpits.

3. The torso

Place your hands flat against the base of the stomach. Make large circular motions, going up towards the neck with your hands parallel. At the neck, move your hands down along the length of the shoulders in an encircling motion.

4. The back

Make circular motions, if necessary going all the way up to the ears and massaging them with your fingertips, without forgetting the junction between the earlobe and the cheek.

5. The nape of the neck

Make circular motions, if necessary going all the way up to the ears and massaging them with your fingertips, without forgetting the junction between the earlobe and the cheek.

6. The face

Massage with your fingers, symmetrically. Place your fingers flat against the top of their forehead, descend toward the top of the temples and come back under the nose, sliding under the eyes. Descend along the nostrils, smooth the cheeks and descend towards the neck, passing by the chin. If necessary, apply the emollient cream on the eyelids, mouth and the corners of the mouth with your fingertips.

7. The hands

Place the child's hand on your fingers, massage it by alternating your thumbs. Massage the back of the hand from the tip of each finger, towards the wrist.

8. The feet

The massage is done by alternating your thumbs. Massage the sole of the foot as well as each toe with your thumbs, then massage the top of the foot, going up to the ankle.
