"The character and potential of a child can be profoundly nurtured or damaged through birth, bonding and parenting skills. Advances in biomedicine now acknowledge that our earliest experiences have a life long impact, for they influence the selection, and even rewriting of our genetic code. Scientific research further reveals that the somatosensory stimuli provided by nurturing touch, movement, and affection significantly improve the development of a child’s nervous and immune systems. The somatosensory experience created by infant massage is an especially effective way for parents to enhance the physiologic and mental health parameters of their children, factors that contribute to the creation of healthy and peaceful adults. The power and promise of infant massage and the work of WINC without borders™ will enable us to advance human civilization, one child at a time.
- Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.
Latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton presents his latest book The Biology of Belief, unleashing the power of consciousness, matter & miracles.
Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized authority in bridging science and spirit. A cell biologist by training, he taught Cell Biology at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine, and later performed pioneering studies at Stanford University’s School of Medicine.
He has been a guest speaker on dozens of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national conferences. His break- through studies on the cell membrane presaged the new science of Epigenetics, and has made him a leading voice of the new biology.
The Biology of Belief is a ground- breaking work in the field of new biology. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and those of other leading-edge scientists, have examined in great detail the mechanisms by which cells receive and process information.
The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.
Dr. Lipton’s Chapter “Conscious Parenting” is profound and a must read for anyone teaching infant massage. Dr. Lipton has given to WINC™ (World Institute for Nurturing Communication) permission to infuse his “Conscious Parenting” into our exclusive curriculum. This book gives additional scientific research that will support and validate the parent’s role in the development of their children. To quote Dr. Thomas Verny, a pioneer in the field of prenatal and perinatal psychiatry: “findings in the peer-reviewed literature over the course of decades establish, beyond any doubt, that parents have overwhelming influence on the mental and physical attributes of the children they raise.” (Verny and Kelly1981) And the influence starts BEFORE children are born. Read the book The Secret Life of the Unborn Child by Dr. Verny.
I would like to share that Susan Campbell and I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Lipton at a conference in Los Angeles. He was unpretentious, humorous, very easy to talk to, warm hearted and most important very supportive of the work that is currently practiced by WINC™, communication through nurturing touch, infant massage.
In closing, we would also like to acknowledge and thank Margaret Horton, publisher, Mountain of Love Productions Inc. for all of her generous assistance in the absence of Dr. Lipton.
