Baby Massage Classes
(IAIM) International Association of Infant Massage
Who are the classes for?
This 5 week programme is suitable for all babies from birth to 1 year old. My classes are mainly for babies aged 8+weeks up to pre-crawling. I also offer 1:1 classes. I work with parents to adapt classes to cater for additional needs as required.
What are classes like?
Classes are small, relaxed and baby-led, which means feeding, crying, sleeping & nappy changes all happen at some point! Classes take place at my home in Staines or at other locations locally. I have lots of mats, cushions and relaxing music to help you feel comfortable.
Each week we massage a different part of the body, before revisiting what we have covered in previous sessions. (I demonstrate the massage strokes on a special doll).
We end each class with a poem or a quotation and some informal discussion while we enjoy refreshments. I provide parent booklets which you can take home.
How can massage help my baby?
Massage helps your baby to feel securely attached; it reduces crying and emotional distress; increases levels of relaxation; develops body awareness; and provides some relief from wind, colic and constipation.
How does massaging my baby help me?
Massaging your baby helps you feel closer to him/her; gives you an increased understanding of your baby; brings you the relaxing benefits of giving your baby nurturing touch; offers you focused time with your baby; provides an opportunity to socialise and share parenting experiences in a welcoming & supportive environment; and last, but not least, you can have fun whilst learning a life-long skill.
