Baby Massage

Create a foundation of well being for your new baby. Baby massage is commonly recognized as one of the best things you can do with your baby to promote healthy development and bonding. Our teachers are all qualified with the International Association of Infant Massage.

Babies love to be held and touched by their parents.

A daily baby massage provides the perfect opportunity to meet your baby’s needs through skin-to-skin contact and deepens the bond between you. Regular baby massage aids relaxation and sleep, relieves wind and colic, promotes healthy development and physical well being leaving you feeling happy and connected with your baby.

The benefits of baby massage are practically endless; in fact, it may be easier to say there are no non-benefits to massage. Countless research studies have been published documenting why massage for a baby is so vitally important, but it is the feedback from parents that we think is the most valuable.

Here is what parents on our courses have said about the benefits they found from attending our classes:

For their baby:

  • “It helps her relax and sleep longer”
  • “She doesn’t cry as much as she used to. But when she does I feel more relaxed about it and can understand what she is telling me now”
  • “I feel so connected with him, I guess it has helped us bond more. Thank you”
  • “She has much less wind and the colic has gone! Thank you so much for teaching me how to do the stomach massage”

For themselves:

    • “I feel much closer to him now”
    • “Before I came to this class I had no idea what his crying meant, I feel like I have a better understanding of his baby language now”
    • “She is my second child, so it has been great having one-on-one time just with her, that’s not easy to get at home”
    • “I feel so chilled out by the end of the class, I love coming here”
    • “This course has been amazing, I feel much more confident in my own ability to be his mother now. I feel like I CAN do this!”

Our baby massage course offers much more than just the practical strokes of how to massage your baby. Each weekly session covers the massage strokes and gentle stretches, as well as time for discussing relevant parenting topics. This discussion time is for mothers and fathers to share ideas and experiences (if they choose to) and ask questions to the group and the teacher. The usual things that parents want to talk about are: sleeping, feeding, feelings and emotions, demands of becoming a parent, crying and not being able to put their baby down.We teach the traditional and authentic baby massage routine over five-weekly sessions, to avoid over-stimulation we choose not to mix massage with any other new baby programs.

Week 1 – Leg Massage

Week 2 – Stomach massage, including the colic routine (and recap on leg strokes)

Week 3 – Chest and arms massage (and recap on stomach and legs)

Week 4 – Face and back massage (and recap all previous strokes)

Week 5 – Whole body massage and gentle yoga stretches

Our instructors are all fully qualified, insured and hold certification with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). The teacher will never massage a baby, the only person to touch or massage in our classes is the parent or caregiver.
