Infant massage is an age-old tradition originating in India that has been taught throughout the world from generation to generation. There are many benefits to infant massage for both baby and parents/caregivers the most significant being:
~it helps to relax and soothe both baby and parent/caregiver
~it deepens bonding
~it helps improve communication between baby and parent/caregiver (reading verbal and non-verbal cues)
~it contributes to development of baby’s body, mind and spirit
~massaged babies gain healthy weight better, helps enhance the digestion process and can be an effective tool at reducing symptoms of gas and colic
~helps babe to sleep better…YAY!!
This class is best for babies from 3 weeks old to crawling age (although all babies up to assisted walking may attend) It is a 1hour class in a 4 week series where the parent/caregiver will learn how to give their infant a full body massage. Each class you will learn and practice on your babies a few body parts to be massaged and then a review from the previous class to ensure you will have a complete understanding of how to do a full body massage for an infant!
Through massage you will not only increase your loving, nurturing bonds with your baby, you will assist in their healthy and happy development.
