Why massage your baby?
Evidence shows that loving and nurturing contact between parents/carers and babies has a positive impact on subsequent development.
Benefits for babies can include:
- Encourages restful sleep
- Develops positive communication between parent/carer and child
- Enhances their feeling of being loved, respected and secure
- Helps to strengthen and regulate their digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems
- Relieves symptoms of colic, gas and constipation
- Teaches babies how to be aware of their body's tension and how to release it, an invaluable gift as they grow into adulthood.
Benefits that parents/carers identify:
- Develops confidence when handling their baby
- Enhances loving communication, helping parents/carers to understand and respond to their baby's non-verbal language
- Increases awareness of baby's growth and development
Recent research has illustrated particular benefits for premature infants, children with asthma, diabetes and certain skin disorders. Cross-cultural studies show that babies who are held, massaged, carried, rocked and breastfed grow into adults that are less aggressive and violent and are more compassionate and cooperative. More than anything else, you and your baby will have FUN with this new, shared experience!
1 - 1 sessions
Private courses available for both parents (or carers) to attend. Most courses are run during the daytime and often both parents cannot attend baby massage - so someone (usually Dad) misses out on the wonderful experience of learning to soothe and bond with baby.
Our Consultant and Child Care Professional Emma Dewey offers private one-to-one Baby Massage courses so both parents can attend and learn the moves and strokes together, these sessions can take place during the day, evening or weekends. You can both practise the strokes and massage moves on baby during the same session.
Emma also offers this training for nannies who are caring for babies, (parents always need to give permission and nannies need to be willing to teach the parent the massage techniques).
£70 per 1 hour session, including a 100ml bottle of organic oil and handouts.
Group sessions are a great way for you to learn the baby massage routine with people that you already know such as friends, family or groups such as NCT.
Group up to 8 people - £350.00 for 3 sessions
