I offer baby massage classes at various venues throughout the West Midlands including Cottonwood Children's Centre. They are ideally taught over five weeks in order to give both the parent and baby time to learn and become accustomed to the massage. They include time for parent relaxation and informal discussion on the joys and challenges of parenting. Classes are suitable for all parents and all babies up to one year old. Only the parents will massage the baby as the instructor will demonstrate the strokes on a doll. Detailed massage stroke handouts will be available. The classes are baby led and a lot of fun.
The baby massage programme is well respected, well researched and has been endorsed to be a high quality parent education programme. On the baby massage course parents learn:
Massage stokes for legs, feet, stomach, chest, arms, hands, face and back
A short colic routine
Gentle movements and touch relaxation
The best time and for how long to massage
What massage oils to use
How to adapt the strokes for your baby's individual needs and the growing child
The courses offer a wonderful opportunity for parents to learn how to communicate with their baby through nurturing touch and massage in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
Courses are provided in a variety of formats to suit parent's needs, from group classes to individual instruction at home.
