Baby Massage & Infant Mental Health
We offer group baby massage classes or 1:1, 1:2 private classes.
Group classes are run over a 5 week programme, to introduce baby to massage and then build up to a full body massage by week 5. The benefits of massage for baby are both physical and mental; soothing physical problems like growing pains, colic, constipation whilst creating a wonderful bond between baby and their care giver.
Week 1 covers legs and feet
Week 2 tummy and chest
Week 3 hands and arms
Week 4 head, face and back
Week 5 full body routine
Each class also has time for mummies and daddys to mix with others on a social level, promoting friendship and support.
1:1 or 1:2 gives both mummies and daddies, the opportunity to learn to massage their baby creating beautiful bonding through touch and love. This can be done at a time to suit parents/care givers in a private space at The Healing Garden.
