Baby Massage Classes:
Learn to Massage Your Baby for Healthy Development.
You know massage feels good and helps soothe your baby but you may not know the other immense benefits of your caring touch and attention. Regular massage with baby will help
- Nurture baby's growth and development
- Increase baby's ability to communicate and develop my brain
- Increase baby's immune function
- Deepen bonding
- Help regulate baby's sleep
- Reduce crying and colic
This is the BEST class! Bond with baby, deepen your ability to read baby's cue, and learn a skill that will impact the entire trajectory of you and your baby's life! The wisdom of massage for babies has been passed down through many different cultures. Here we will mix the wisdom of learning those techniques with the amazing current science behind why regular massage is so important in our lives - especially during the critical development time of infants. Massage has been shown to enhance weight gain, improve cognitive and motor development, boost immune function, help baby regulate sleep, decrease colic, crying, and gas. This stuff is magic and so simple! Join us in this intimate group to support one another and our babies. Please bring a receiving blanket, a towel, a toy for baby (if older), and your open heart.
This class is for newborns through pre-crawlers with their caregiver.
