The Benefits of Baby Massage
 We recently started offering baby massage, and baby massage classes, at our spa in Palisades, NY. I sat down with Patricia Pol, our infant massage therapist and instructor, to ask her about the benefits of massaging your baby. Little did I know there would be so many! Here's what she told me.   Me: What are the benefits of baby massage? Patricia: There are so many! Massage helps improve your baby’s sleeping patterns and digestion. It can also ease congestion and soothe babies with colic. Using long strokes helps with muscle coordination and aids development. It can even help them build up the strength in their neck,...

Arnica to the Rescue
Summer is finally here after a spring with a lot of rain and rather cool temperatures. When it finally turned warm a few weeks ago, everybody was out and about. The number of bicyclists that all of a sudden turned up on Route 9W, the popular biking route near Weleda’s headquarters, was quite staggering, and for me it was time to saddle up as well! It’s a rather scenic ride along the Hudson River, and I like to do my part for the environment by bicycling to the office. I am admittedly a fair-weather rider, so there is no need to look for me on the trails unless it is nice outside.The first ride of the season is always such a joy,...

The Itch is Back
When Ben was a toddler he had eczema on the inside of his elbows and thighs. It was a struggle to ease the itching and keep the skin hydrated enough not to crack and bleed when he scratched all the time. My fears were that we would have to use hydrocortisone which is not good for the skin when used long term. I am lucky to work at Weleda because I could experiment with different natural products to see which worked best. The best results were from using Weleda Calendula Oil after an oatmeal bath. I would then slather Skin Food on the extra dry spots. We’d have to put Skin Food on again if he started itching. We did this at every diaper...
