Infant massage is not just limited to babies toddlers,older children welcome!
During massage, infants and their caregivers learn the art of forming secure relationships through attuned communication, which leads to lifelong benefits for your entire family. In our infant massage classes we have noticed that massage helpsto understand and respond to their child’s nonverbal language with love, caring and compassion. Using infant massage not only helps you to respond to your baby’s nonverbal language, but also to recognize your child’s cues and ways of communicating throughout the massage session.
Infant Massage classes are designed to foster mutual trust and understanding between parent and child. Clinical research has shown that massaging your baby can aid in your infant’s physiological and neurological development and function, and massage helps soothe common discomforts. Baby massage has been shown to assist in reducing symptoms of colic, promotes restful sleep for the infant (and in turn the parents), and increases healthy attachment and bonding.
We structure our infant massage classes to be offered on a weekly basis so that we can teach you new massage strokes while you introduce them to your baby in a way that will not over stimulate your child. As with anything new we are introducing to our babies, it is important to give infants the time they need to first have this “new thing” introduced, think about it and decide what they think. We recognize the importance of empowering infants and children through touch and respect the baby’s opinion and choice.
Even when you are scheduled for one of our infant massage classes and your baby is crying, fussy or sleeping, we remind you that are welcome to come to class. These classes are designed for you and your child in an environment that is conducive to relaxation and enjoyment. When you are in class, even just holding your child, we will teach you the information you need to provide massage with your baby at a time that is perfect for both of you.
Our Infant massage classes are available to parents of infants birth to pre-crawling,, , foster parents and parents of pre-term infants (babies born prematurely) . grandparents, extended family members, caregivers and anyone else who loves the child is also welcome. If your baby has, or may be experiencing symptoms of colic, or has any other special needs, we only ask that you contact us for an initial phone consultation prior to joining one of our infant massage courses, so that we can determine the best way to support you and your baby.
We invite you to learn the value and many benefits of massage and how you can communicate your love for your child through touch.
In a series of weekly classes, parents and caregivers will learn to recognize their infant’s unique communication cues as well as special techniques of infant massage which have been shown to increase family bonding. Course fee includes informational massage handouts and massage oil.
