Indian Milking

Hi, I have just read an article on the Guild for Sensory Development's website, advising their members not to teach this stroke to parents. When I did my training last year this stroke was included at the beginning of the leg and arm routines. It is also included in the infant massage books I have, including Vimala McClure's book (I have the 2009 copy). I would be grateful if infant massage instructors could tell me what they were taught, and what the general feeling about indian milking is. I look forward to your replies! Debbie

This is the article I was referring to. I can't find anything from anyone else though.

Thanks for posting this, I had no idea of this debate - as an ocasional baby massage instructor it is convincing enough for me to hold off teaching Indian milking until I see more on the issue - but very interested in other views, especially from experienced instructors
