Mothers have been practicing the art of infant massage for centuries, and with good reason. Not only is it fun bonding time between parent and child, but it provides essential stimulation for the baby’s physical and emotional development. In these series of three classes, you will learn simple and effective techniques to perform a full body massage on your own baby that you can adapt throughout their childhood. You will be offering your baby all the benefits of loving touch, right from the start. There is a growing body of research demonstrating the massage:

  • Provides a special time of communication that fosters love, compassion, and respect
  • Improves overall functioning of the gastrointestinal tract
  • Promotes relaxation and helps babies self-regulate calm, which reduces crying
  • Helps to improve sensory and body awareness
  • Helps baby/child to sleep deeper and more soundly
  • Helps to improve pain management; can relieve discomfort from teething,
  • Helps with congestion, gas, and colic
  • Enhances release of hormones in the body.
  • Reduces levels of cortisol, the stress hormone

We’ll be updating the class dates as they are scheduled so please check back!
