See what it’s all about. Some local parents enjoying the experience with their babies, as shown on our Facebook page.
Classes run for approximately 45 minutes of massage (total duration 1-1.5 hours), once a week over four weeks.
Class numbers are normally kept relatively small, however I can accommodate group bookings upon request.
Swedish and Indian inspired strokes and yoga stretches are some of the techniques you can expect to learn during the course.
Applying massage results in proven relief from distressing tummy pain and a more settled infant. It strengthens the immune system and increases resistance to illness along with many other benefits.
Participating in infant massage provides the opportunity to meet other like minded new parents and form new friendships, one of my favourite aspects of involvement. It also assists to enhance and strengthen the bond between you and your baby.
You will need to bring whatever supplies you may need for your baby eg nappies, formula etc
Dress for comfort as classes are conducted on the floor. Carpeted studio is heated to a comfortable temperature and is clean, cosy and inviting. Studio is 10 mins from CBD on the eastern shore.
