Ashley @ BabySPA
A haircut visit turns into an unexpected swimming sessions for Ashley! We did see BabySPA previously before Annabelle gave birth to Ashley while window shopping at Changi City Point Mall. There were thoughts but no decision made as we were unsure if Ashley would enjoy.
After trimming Ashley’s hair, we brought Ashley for the swimming trial before deciding whether to sign up the package. After seeing how Ashley enjoyed herself in the water, we signed up the 20-sessions package. The package also came with a tabletop photo which you have to take at Venus D’Wedding. The staff there was friendly and helpful, at least for the branch which we frequent. Other services which BabySPA provides are haircut, baby massage, sales of Korean-made playmats, beans spout husk pillows and etc.

BabySpa System is a warm water-based method of strengthening and stimulating babies to improve their physical growth and mental development.
At birth, the babys brain has little information about how to move on the floor because he has never had that experience. However, the baby already has seven months of information about how it feels to move in an aqueous environment. In this environment the neonates body is buoyant and all the babys sensory pathways are developing; vision, hearing, feeling, taste and smell sensation. If newborns dont use their natural ability, it may be lost. For this reason, it is very important that they have the opportunity to swim from the very first day of life or as soon as possible. Providing an opportunity for baby to move in the water is an ideal way to develop not only a stronger body, but a better brain.
BabySpa System is very similar to Hydrotherapy which has been recognized as beneficial since the dawn of civilization that improves lung capacity and strengthens extremities (Arms/Hands/Fingers and Legs/Feet/Toes). Hydrotherapy studies document beneficial effects enhancing physical and mental development, increasing weight gain that can be considered as an adjunct to traditional treatment strategies. Especially For pre-mature, autism, cerebral palsy.
