Have you rocked your child today? Check out Musikgarten!
Gentle rocking movement is soothing and enjoyable to your child, and stimulates the vestibular (balance) system located deep in the inner ear. When the head and body move, the fluid in the ear stimulates sensory hair cells, which record body position and movements in space. The resonance of the parent’s breathing and singing along with rocking only adds to the pleasure. You’ll learn many tunes in a Musikgarten class to sing to your child. Each tune is a powerful way to convey caring and loving. Find a Musikgarten program near you to join a class, or ask for a free preview!
