The course consists of one weekly session taught over a period of five weeks.
This enables you and your little one time to learn and become accustomed to the massage.
The course incorporates relaxation for parents, the sequence of massage strokes and an informal chat/discussion over refreshments.
You will have the opportunity to exchange stories with other parents and make new friends during what can feel a vulnerable and overwhelming chapter in your life.
All of my classes are baby led so you are welcome to feed/change/settle your little one in whichever way you wish.
Please inform me at the time of booking whether your baby was born prematurely or has any other special requirements in order that I can meet any additional needs that may be required.
Please bring a towel to place over our massage mats for your baby to lay on.
During the course you will learn:
• massage strokes for legs, feet, stomach, chest, arms, hands, face and back;
• a short colic routine;
• gentle movements;
• touch relaxation;
• the best time and for how long to massage;
• what massage oils to use;
• the importance of good positioning; and
• how to adapt the strokes for your baby’s individual needs and the growing child.
You will also receive a parent handbook containing all of the massage strokes, an organic massage oil and a certificate for your little one’s memory box.
I am also available for group/individual sessions for:
sufferers of PND;
young parent(s); and
