Baby Massage

Long before babies are able to speak, they communicate with the world around them through touch.  The power of touch to soothe and heal is natural and instinctive – when a baby cries, our natural instinct is to cuddle them or to rub their back.  Baby massage is perfectly safe from birth and is simply an extension of this natural impulse.

 

The benefits of baby massage include:

  • Easing colic by relaxing the diaphragm and abdominal muscles
  • Helping with constipation – massaging the baby’s tummy in a clockwise direction stimulates the intestine and relieves muscle cramping
  • Helping with sleep issues
  • Giving you a wonderful way to bond with your baby.  Regular eye contact and touch between you and your baby can help to overcome some of the effects of postnatal depression
  • Helping your baby develop hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness.

Our qualified baby massage instructor will build your confidence as parents to continue your baby’s massage routine at home.
