10 Reasons to Massage Your Baby

  • To do something warm, loving and special with your baby

  • To help your baby sleep better (so you can!)

  • To help relieve constipation and help your baby have regular bowel movements

  • To reduce gas, colic, crying and reflux

  • To help your baby have a lifelong appreciation of touch and warm relationships

  • To improve your baby’s digestion and absorption of nutrients

  • To help your baby’s cognitive development

  • To learn how to communicate better with your baby

  • To help you and your baby fall in love with each other

 

  • Learn to communicate with confidence, understand baby's cues, sleep more, enjoy less crying and improve baby's health, digestion, and all bodily functions.

  • Loving massage can increase muscle tone, improve baby's motor skills, IQ, teach respect and trust. Soothe, repair, and improve security and relaxation for baby and you! 

  • Parent-Baby Massage Class is a weekly class for 4 weeks and are baby-led with a progressive sequence to learn a complete routine. 

  • Each week, parents/caregivers learn strokes for a new part of the body while reviewing strokes from previous classes, so new strokes are learned and previous information is reinforced. We teach a little at a time to ensure that you are confident with every aspect.

  • The strokes and styles of baby massage are easier to grasp when demonstrated by our experienced instructors. Pressure, rate, rhythm, the length of the massage, respect, bonding, why baby cries, baby’s body language, positioning of the baby, relaxation and parent empowerment are some of the skills and topics that will be discussed.

  • You massage your little one! Instructors will demonstrate stokes using a doll. 

  • We welcome babies in any mood and respect their needs. Sometimes little ones just want to be held and that is OK! Families can use a doll/stuffed animal, or just watch and practice later.
