Touch is the first sense to develop in utero and it is the last sense to leave us before we die.

Infant Massage Class

 

Infant massage is generally taught in small groups of up to 4 babies. Over a series of 4-5 weeks you will learn simple techniques to relax your baby and specific strokes that caretakers report may help with congestion, colic, gas and teething.

Massage has a very soothing effect on your baby and may help to improve their digestion and elimination. It is also though to aid their muscular co-ordination, posture and flexibility in preparation for crawling. By helping your baby to relax it may promote longer, sounder sleepand decrease the production of stress hormones. For mothers with post-natal depression it can be a very positive experience and may increase their sense of bonding with theirchild.

 

Why attend a class?

We understand not all parents are familiar with massage, and not every baby reacts the same to massages. Therefore we keep it casual and slow to ensure you and baby have time to find best the pressure, body positioning, rhythm and length of the massage. The process is empowering for the parents and relaxing for all!
