Baby Massage 


Baby Massage is an ancient art that connects parent and baby and helps the parent to understand their baby's nonverbal language and respond with love and respectful listening.

The benefits of Baby Massage which are outlined in more detail throughout our course, can generally be divided into four categories :- 

1) Stimulation 

2) Relaxation 

3) Relief 

4) Interaction 

   As touch is a powerful element in human bonding, loving skin contact with parent and child benefits both of them. 

Some of the benefits of Baby Massage for parents are bonding, relaxation, communication and increased confidence in relating to and handling the baby. 

Some of the benefits of Baby Massage for babies are; it enhances the bonding process, improves blood circulation and digestion, can improve sleep patterns and reduction of colic symptoms and digestive problems. 

Some of the parents quotes after completing Baby Massage :

"Lovely relaxing class, learnt some great techniques..."

“Colic strokes for constipation, learning how much touch your baby can tolerate/enjoy.  Loved learning songs to sing to my baby and as week progressed I could see him enjoying strokes and songs more and more”

"It's a lovely social morning for mums"

" My child loved the massage..."

"Great company in the class"

" I really enjoyed the social side meeting other mothers"
