Looking for something new to learn, whilst having fun with your baby?
Our group Baby Massage classes are held in a relaxed environment, led by a Certified Infant Massage Instructor.
Throughout the course, you will learn how to massage your baby, have some fun and share experiences with other new parents.
Baby massage offers huge benefits for both you and your baby as you will share one to one time, further enhancing your bond. It will also assist in the release of feel good hormones, helping to alleviate stress and calm both you and your baby.
Massage can assist in promoting your baby’s growth and development and can help to stimulate the immune, digestive and respiratory systems. In addition, specific strokes may help relieve colic and constipation and above all, it helps your baby to feel loved!
Classes are held in groups of up to 6 babies, in order to keep the experience intimate and friendly, with Mum’s, Dad’s and carers all welcome!
Each session will last approximately 90 minutes over a course of 5 weeks, introducing massage to a different part of the baby’s body each week. Areas massaged include legs and feet, tummy, chest, arms, back and face.
In addition, we will also cover:
- Colic routine
- Gentle movements, incorporating some of the principles of yoga
- Touch relaxation
- The best time to massage your baby
- Recommended massage oils
- Adapting the strokes as your child grows
Weekly handouts are provided on all techniques covered.
Our instructors are members of the International Association of Infant Massage www.iaim.org.uk, CRB checked and fully insured. The Association is passionate that every baby receives loving, and healthy nurturing touch.
We look forward to meeting you and your baby!
