Baby massage is a wonderful way for you to bond with your baby,
to increase baby’s development and to meet new mums just like you.
Benefits for you and your baby:
Infant massage can help you learn more about babies’ bodies and your baby’s signals such as when they like or dislike something. Learning so much about your baby builds a strong bond and helps with communication. For mums it can also help relieve baby blues or post natal depression by releasing “happy” hormones like serotonin, prolactin and oxytocin.
For babies, massage promotes a healthy digestion and other body symptoms such as teething and regulating sleep. It is also great for social interaction with other babies because usually at this stage in their development they won’t really be in contact with many other babies.
What you learn:
You learn a full body massage routine over the course of 3 (one on one) or 4 consecutive weeks (group class of no more than 6 babies) Each session is one hour.
You’ll receive a bottle of organic sunflower oil and handouts with songs to sing whilst massaging your baby as well as the routine itself so you can continue at home. These are included in the price of the course.
Toes or Fingers:
“This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy and none,
And this little piggy went the sleep….shhhhhhhh!”
Where will it take place:
In the comfort of your home. If you’re hosting the massage class in your home for a group you get 50% OFF the massage course. Calming music will be played throughout to soothe both you and your baby but don’t feel anxious or upset if your baby cries during the session. It’s completely normal and expected and that’s what the handouts are for; you can follow the routine and continue at home.
3 week one on one classes – £55
4 week group classes – £45 per baby
