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.

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.
