Thursday 7th June start date. 10:30am-12pm.
This 5 week small group course will accommodate up to 4 families in a comfortable home environment in Barby.

Using Swedish massage techniques, supporting the body's natural functions, you will learn massage strokes for a different body part each week, building up to a full body massage in the fifth week. Classes are gently guided by a QIMT (Qualified Infant Massage Teacher) and designed to accomodate different learning styles, so that all particpants leave feeling confident to massage their own baby at home.

During each session, we look at relevant topics to massage, such as suitable massage oils and understanding your baby's cues, which will aid parents to understand and nurture their baby's individual needs.

With a refreshment break included, this is the perfect way to meet other parents whilst enjoying some one on one time with your baby.

While infant massage is best suited to pre-crawling babies after their 6-8 week health check, some babies may benefit from massage to ease colic symptoms, which tend to peak between 2 and 6 weeks of age. If you think your baby is suffering from colic, massage is a really useful tool to learn, so please do get in touch to discuss.
