Massage is a wonderful and special gift that you can share with your baby. Touch is your baby’s most developed sense at birth and through it you can communicate love, security and trust. Baby massage can help you to understand your baby’s cues and develop your ability to listen and respond through the creation of a special time together. With your instinctual, loving touch, you can lay down the foundations which can help you to build a happy and confident relationship with your baby for the future. Baby massage can help to relieve symptoms of colic, wind, constipation, colds and teething discomfort. It also supports your baby’s physical and emotional development. Plus, it is great fun to learn and a brilliant way to meet other parents.
In this five-week course, you will learn different massage movements each week, which I will show you using my demonstration doll. By the end of the course, you will feel confident in performing a full body relaxing massage on your baby. You will be provided with oil and handouts describing the massage techniques so that you can enjoy practicing at home. We can also add some rhymes and songs to make it interesting and easy to remember.
The classes are relaxed, friendly and informal. Your baby sets the pace of the session and you can feed, walk around and do whatever you and your baby need.
