Description

The quality of the closeness between parent and baby has been proven to have lifelong benefits.

Infant Massage provides benefits for both the baby and the parent and is wonderful way to enhance the unique relationship you have with your child. Evidence shows that loving nurturing contact between care givers and infants has a significant impact on their physical, emotional and mental development.

Infant Massage includes all the elements of attachment, including eye contact, smiling, soothing sounds, touch, smell and interaction.
Baby Massage courses are sociable, relaxed and fun. The course is open to infants from birth up to pre-crawling (it gets a little hard to keep hold of them ony are properly on the move!). Courses are run for five consecutive weeks, each class lasting up to an an hour. You will be guided through a step by step massage routine which combines a balance of relaxing and stimulating massage, reflexology techniques together with principles of yoga movement.

Having a relaxed and informal environment is hugely important so the classes are very much baby led, meaning that all baby behaviour is welcome, no matter how unpredictable!

Should this not be your first baby, and you have older siblings to think about, please be assured that baby's older siblings are welcome to the class. Siblings are welcome to join the classes and learn along side their parents how to massage a baby through using one of the demonstration dolls provided. This is a wonderful way of engaging an older sibling in bonding with the new baby and has proved to be a great success in many classes.

Face to Face courses will allow you to meet other families same babies roughly the same age. We will share the ins and outs of parenthood, give support and encouragement.
