What is infant Massage?

Infant Massage is a set of strokes, encouraging positive touch and communication between your baby and you.

Benefits of Infant Massage:

There are many benefits for you and your baby, the main one is having relaxed time for each other, where you can learn about your baby and build the bond with your baby.  This calm activity can also help your baby feel loved, help promote better sleep as part of a routine, help with colic and can help to boost the immune system.

I offer Infant Massage as a 5 week course of 1 hour sessions, during the programme I explain and demonstrate massage in the following areas (1) Legs and Feet, (2) Tummy and colic routine, (3) Chest and arms, (4) Face and back, (5) Stroke review and gentle exercise.
