Infant Massage course runs over 5 consecutive week, each session lasting 1 – 1.5 hours.
Each week focusing on a different body area each week building up to a full body massage, there will be a refresher of the previous week’s strokes at the beginning of each session, all massage strokes will be demonstrated on a doll whilst you massage your baby.
Classes are completely baby led so no need to worry if your baby needs a feed, sleep, nappy change or just wants to watch, feel free to attend to their needs in the knowledge that you will have lots of opportunity to watch the demonstrations and practice the strokes.
Handouts are also available to take home.
Classes are held in Small groups or 1-1, In-home environment, I am also happy to run Classes for groups of friends in their own homes.
1-1 courses can be arranged at a time to suit you, you may find this useful if you have twins, or have an older child or are unable to attend a group.

Infant Massage classes are suitable for babies up to 12 months though it is better to start before your baby starts crawling, they offer a great way to bond with your baby and meet other parents and babies.
Siblings are welcome to come too especially if childcare is an issue, I recommend you bring a doll with you so your older child can copy what you are doing and join in.
Benefits of infant massage:
Baby Massage is a great opportunity for parent and baby to socialise with other parents and babies and offers 1-1 time for parent and baby enhancing bonding and attachment and promoting communication, both verbal and non-verbal so baby feels loved and respected.
Baby Massage will stimulate baby’s circulatory and digestive systems, hormonal and immune systems and will promote coordination, balance, muscular development and body awareness, it also relieves Wind and Colic, digestive issues, teething pain and growing pains and can also Improve sleep patterns.
Note – its not just for Mums, Massage is great for Dad’s or close cares too. Some Dad’s miss out on a lot of the day to day carte of their baby, especially if they are at work and or their baby is breastfeeding. Massage is a fantastic way for Dad’s to bond with and interact with their baby and enjoy their own special time together.
