baby massage Classes

Baby Massage

Tender and loving touch helps babies to relax and promotes overall development. 

The aim of our infant massage classes is to provide a warm, supportive & inclusive environment to families of all kind. A space where babies and parents/caregivers can nurture love & connection, be present not just physically but emotionally.

Baby massage is a fantastic way to get to know your new baby. The nurturing touch of baby massage is a unique, unspoken language between baby and mum/parents and has scientifically proven long-lasting benefits.
 
Baby massage has a positive effect on the development of the baby’s nervous system, brain formation, and biochemicals, such as hormones and neurotransmitters. A regular practice has a direct impact on the mind and body of both babies and parents. 
 
Benefits of baby massage
 
For Baby:
Interaction – undivided attention of Mum/Parent, promoting secure attachment, verbal & nonverbal communication between baby and Mum/Parents, enhancing the bonding process. Love.
 
Stimulation – aids physiological and overall development of baby, including neurological and muscular development.
 
Relaxation – regular infant massage aids digestion, improves sleep and increases mobility. Relaxation aids hormonal balance which promotes healthy brain development.
 
Relief – massaging your baby can help with gas, constipation, and colic, muscular tension, and discomfort of teething. It helps to release physical and emotional tension. 
 
For Parents:
Infant massage enhances parenting and the release of endorphins and oxytocin. Balanced hormones mean relaxed parents. It means you are “being present”, here and now, not just physically but emotionally, and focusing and meeting the needs of your baby.
