International Association of Infant Massage
Loving touch is the most ancient and comforting language of babies. Gentle touch reinforces love, safety and trust between the parent/ caregiver and child that lasts a lifetime.
During this relaxing, 5 week course of International Association of Infant Massage (founded in 1982) you will learn a soothing combination of Swedish and Indian massage strokes to calm your baby.
Massage strokes are repeated and developed each week, so that by the end of the course you will be able to give your baby/babies a full body massage.
A Manual of strokes, massage oil, snacks and drinks are included in the price - £43 for the 5 week course.
A more relaxed baby will sleep more deeply and for longer, as muscular tension is eased.
Massaging your baby's tummy helps to relieve colic , wind and constipation allowing your baby to feel more comfortable.
