When Khyati Desai-Seltzer gave birth, her Mom came to live with her for six months to help out and would frequently massage her baby. Khyati took infant massage for granted and saw it as something her culture does for babies. The more she learned from her Mom, the more she became fascinated.
Now, she’s certified by the International Association of Infant Massage to provide instruction to parents on massaging their babies for short term and long term benefits. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and International Studies from LSU and a Master’s in Public Administration in Nonprofit Management from GMU. She’s the mother of a three-year-old girl and enjoys yoga, meditation, travel, and dancing in her free time. Khyati believes if every baby had a chance to experience loving, physical touch on a regular basis, our world would look very different. She’s passionate about holistic living and wants to share the power of infant massage with as many parents as possible.
