Baby Massage Course
In the classes I will demonstrate massage techniques that you will practise and use yourself at home. Slow soothing strokes can comfort your baby before bed or more invigorating rolling massage with nursery rhymes, for example, can stimulate and interest your baby if you choose to massage earlier in the day. Daily baby massage can also help your baby’s digestion, immune system and muscle tone. I recommend a five week course but you are welcome to pop in and out as is convenient.
All babies are welcome, although it does get tricky if they are crawling! Generally, I recommend from 6 weeks, post GP check up but if your baby is happy and healthy under 6 weeks please bring him/her along.
