Event description

Description

“Infant massage is an ancient art that connects you deeply with the person who is your baby, and helps you to understand your baby’s particular nonverbal language and respond with love and respectful listening. It empowers you as a parent, for it gives you the means by which you become an expert on your own child.”

— Vimala McClure, author of Infant Massage, A Handbook for Loving Parents

Parents may bring their baby, age 8 months or younger, to this workshop or choose to use the instructor's doll. Please indicate your choice when you register. The workshop will take place on the floor, so please bring a blanket to provide a comforting environment for your baby! The instructor will provide oils and all other essentials for infant massage.
