Amelia D. Auckett

Amelia Auckett is a nurse who has practiced in Australia for more than twenty-five years and has been the head of the Infant Welfare Centre in Frankston, Victoria, Australia. She was first introduced to infant massage in 1977 through the Mother and Babies Health Association Hospital in Adelaide, Australia. She then began to introduce baby massage at the Infant Welfare Centre.

Amelia’s book, “Baby Massage: Parent-Children Bonding Through Touch” has become a classic resource for those wanting to learn the use of infant massage. In her book, she states, “I believe that it is love that I express through my hands during a massage that has the power to help the baby heal and grow. Of course, the physical touch of massage is most important, but without love it is just another “therapy”, and not a true shared experience.”


Amelia Auckett perceives massage as an expression of love through a special kind of caring touch. She believes that when mothers massage their babies at an early age, the massage continues the bonding process and helps establish a warm, positive parent-child relationship. Baby massage is an introduction of caring touch that can continue to any age.
