Baby massage is a lovely way of expressing love, care and respect through touch and has been shown to have many benefits for parent-child attachment and children’s development. It is an interaction that involves gentle strokes over the infant's skin. During our 5 week baby massage course you will learn to massage different areas of your baby and how each stroke is beneficial. Each week we will build upon the last learning new strokes until you are able to give baby a full 45 minute massage. We will learn massage strokes for the chest and tummy, legs and feet, arms and hands, head and face and babies back.
