An amazing experience for both parents and baby. The massage techniques are very easy to learn and its benefits go far beyond the immediate physiologic gains.
Promotes bonding and secure attachment, feeling loved, respected and valued.
Stimulates all bodily functions, including digestion, increased awareness.
Helps relieve gas and colic, constipation and elimination, growing pains and muscular tension, teething discomfort and cramps.
Improved sleep patterns, improves muscle tone, increased calmness, reduced crying.
Baby massage is for babies 0-12 months, including preemies and special needs children up to 7 years.
A class consists of 5 sessions once a week. This allows you to learn all the strokes, and allows your baby to get used to the massage. You will learn massage stokes for legs, feet, stomach, chest, arms, hands, face and back, a colic routine, gentle movements and touch relaxation.
Strokes are demonstrated using a doll, a little at a time to ensure that babies are not overstimulated and respected. Only parents massage their own baby.
You will get your first massage oil and a detailed handout in class.
Our classes are baby led, so do not be concerned about the class coinciding with sleep or feed times. Spare dolls are available to practice on if your baby is sleeping. As our classes are all about communication it really is fine if your baby cries as this is naturally one of the ways they express their needs. Do not hesitate to join because you have a “difficult” baby.
At the end of each class we have space for discussion on many topics of parenting and to build connections between participants.
We bonded more and I learnt how to read her communications more seeing how she reacts to massages at different times. And health wise too, my baby’s colic issues improved a lot.Mother to a 15 week old baby
