The Baby Massage course runs for 4 weeks. Each week we focus on a different area, as well as reviewing previous strokes so over the course a full massage routine is learnt. Prices range from £20-£25 per course depending on location.
We provide you with massage oil that you can take home with you. We use organic suflower oil (not to be confused with the oil available in supermarkets) which is completely natural and absorbed by the skin, providing essential nutrients.
n.b. Baby massage is not suitable for babies under 6 weeks old.
For centuries baby massage has been used in India to help soothe babies and aid bonding between parents and babies. Positive touch releases oxytocin in both parent and baby which is the 'love' hormone promoting feelings of nurturing. It also helps mum produce prolactin which is the hormone that helps build up her milk supply so great for breast feeding mums.
Baby massage is great for colicky babies as it helps break down gas bubbles, pass wind, tone the digestive tract and improve brain to tummy communication so that the digestive system works more efficiently.
All babies will benefit from the relaxing environment during the baby massage class. The gentle strokes and the soothing music all help to create a wonderful, relaxing experience. Many parents report that their babies have had a long, peaceful sleep after the class.
