Baby Massage Course Thursday 31st of May
Come along and join us on a Thursday morning at 10 and learn how to massage your baby. Massaging your baby has a range of benefits including:
Bonding: Baby massage provides a quality, pleasure-filled time between parent and infant. Through massage parents will pick up on their baby’s cues as they react to your touch and begin to communicate.
Colic and Constipation: By helping with digestion and the movement of gas, colic and constipation can be lessened with massage.
Restlessness: As your baby becomes used to massage and what it means they can often be soothed and comforted. Some will even sleep after a massage!
Relieve pain or discomfort: Massage can cause a rise in endorphins helping to sooth babies and it can even help with teething too!
The course takes place for one hour every week for six weeks, teaching in small groups of around 6-8. It’s very informal and there is plenty of time to get settled, relax and for your babies to get ready for a massage.
Each week you will learn a new set of strokes to use on your baby. In week one we start by massaging the legs and gradually work up the body. Each week we go over what was done the week before to gradually build up the routine and allow your baby to get used to being massaged for longer periods at a time. By the end of the six weeks (with some practice at home!) you will have mastered a full body routine and a routine to help with colic.
The 6 week course costs £50 and includes massage booklet and a bottle of oil.
