Our baby massage course is designed to promote the attachment bond between parent and baby within a relaxing and calming environment.
This course will run for 6 weeks and is aimed at babies from 8 weeks of age until they are crawling and is taught by a certified instructor. We will provide mats and massage oil, all you need to bring is a towel, yourself and your precious little one. Don’t worry if your baby is asleep as we have spare demonstration dolls available.
It is important to us that all learners are confident with each technique before moving on to the next, which is why we will gradually learn more of the sequence as the weeks progress.
We will give you the ability to recognise the various behavioural states a baby can be experiencing. How to notice the cues that are being given by baby. You will learn the importance of touch and how it benefits baby, below are some of the benefits of our class.
