Parents who take a class with a IAIM certified massage instructor learn much more than just the mechanics of a massage routine. Our program involves many different styles of touch, movement, interaction and communication.
Research and anecdotal evidence from families have shown that there are many ways that babies and families may benefit from infant massage.
They can be grouped into four categories: Interaction, Stimulation, Relief and Relaxation. Improved sleep patterns, relief of gas/colic, promotion of bonding and secure attachment are just a few of the benefits.
This class is held over a five week period, once a week for 90 minutes each. The class is designed for newborns to six months of age. Class includes manual and oil.
