Baby Massage is a nurturing and loving practice, based on strokes inspired by Indian and Swedish traditions, reflexology and includes gentle movements for baby.
Our Baby Massage Course is taught over 5 weeks. Each week we will teach you how to massage a different part of your baby’s body and after 5 weeks, you will have learnt how to massage your baby’s legs & feet, stomach, chest, arms and hands, face and back – a full body massage for baby ! We also share a special sequence for the relief of Colic and Gas. You will receive a bottle of massage oil and an illustrated booklet, to use with your baby at home.
What’s happens in a Baby Massage Class?
Parents (mum or dad) are invited to join, where your baby will be massaged only by you. The practice is led by baby and we encourage you to listen to your baby’s cues – you are welcome to feed, change, hold your baby and meet their needs during Class. Babies are welcome together with their sounds and moods.
Classes run at a specified time, this is our schedule and not baby’s ! Our classes teach parents how to massage their baby, so that they can offer baby a regular massage at home, at a time when baby wants to massaged (this may be different for each baby). If your baby is asleep, you can practice the techniques on a doll in Class and when your baby is ready to be massaged at home, you will know what to do.
Please bring to Class any items you require for your own comfort (e.g. water) and the comfort of your baby (e.g. food, nappies, quiet soft toy, pacifier) including a thick baby blanket or cushion and a large towel to rest your baby on.
