Event Details

Learn how to massage your infant and begin this wonderful,  nurturing and loving touch.  Each session consist of 4 classes that are about  1 hour long where only parents and full-time caregivers massage their babies. You will learn to observe the baby's responses throughout the massage, and how to respond to their cues.  Each week parents will learn how to massage a different part of the body and  have a week to practice at home before coming back to class for a review.  It is a great opportunity for parents to meet other parents, to gain support, and to participate in open discussions on the benefits of infant massage.  Studies have shown that massaging your baby is beneficial for their health.

Babies from 2 weeks to 1 year are welcome

Classes will start July 13 2013 for 4 weeks at 9:30 AM
