About This Class

The Sensational Baby® Infant Massage Class from Infant Massage USA® is a 5-week course designed to help mothers and fathers learn how to read their baby's cues and apply the appropriate infant massage techniques.  This class is taught by Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM) Morella Hammer, LMFT of Pasadena Family Therapy.

Why Infant Massage?

“Being touched and caressed, being massaged, is food for the infant. Food as necessary as minerals, vitamins, and proteins.” -- Dr. Frederick Laboyer

Infant massage benefits both infant and parents.  For the infant, it can help provide relief from common discomforts, regulate sleep patterns and promote bonding and attachment.  It can also help parents better understand and respond to infant cues and feel more confident and competent as care-givers.

Benefits of Infant Massage for Baby

  • Infant-Parent attachment or “bonding”
  • Relaxation
  • Helps baby feel loved
  • Promotes better sleep
  • Facilitates body awareness
  • Boosts immune system
  • Sensory stimulation
  • Improves skin condition
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Helps digestion
  • Balances respiration
  • Relief for teething pains
  • Help waste elimination
  • Helps build parents’ and baby’s self-esteem
  • Helps you learn about your baby (their needs and desires)
  • Relaxes parents
  • Pleasurable experience
  • Stimulates production of oxytocin (Oxytocin is a hormone which can be produced by both male and female persons during massage. It is useful as a pain reliever and has a calming effect on the person.)


Benefits of Infant Massage for Mothers & Fathers

  • Caregivers report feeling more comfortable and confident in their ability to care for baby.
  • Parents learn to understand and respond to baby’s cues.
  • Parents learn techniques to comfort, calm and soothe their babies.
  • Provides an additional avenue for close and nurturing contact.
  • Infant Massage is one of the most natural and pleasant methods of providing this important early nurturing and an amazing tool for helping parents become closer to their babies.


Why 5 Weeks?

This class is taught over 5 weeks to give both the parent and baby time to learn and become comfortable with the massage. Each week parents learn strokes for a new part of the body while reviewing strokes from previous classes. So new strokes are learned and previous information is reinforced.  We teach a little at a time to ensure that you are confident with every aspect.

The strokes and styles of baby massage are easier to grasp when demonstrated by our experienced instructors. Pressure, rate, rhythm, the length of the massage, respect, bonding, why baby cries, baby’s body language, positioning of the baby, relaxation and parent empowerment are some of the skills and topics that will be discussed.

Seating is limited, so please sign up today.
