Leduc believes babies are intuitively aware of their surroundings. Massage, as introduced in Baby Massage: A Video for Loving parents, allows silent, intuitive behavior, and fulfills a baby's inborn need to be touched. It assists with the bond of trust and confidence between caregiver and child. She also feels it is a very important way to teach children "healthy touching."
