Infant Massage Classes- Multiple Sessions

Babies and parents alike benefit from this ancient tradition that has been practiced around the world for centuries and is now being rediscovered here in the United States. Research shows that infants who are massaged daily sleep better, have less colic and gain weight faster. Their parents have decreased stress and anxiety and develop more confidence in their parenting skills.

Class Formats

We offer infant massage classes in a variety of formats to meet each family’s needs. We offer a one-time class, often on weekends, so both parents can attend. We have a 4-week class that is geared for very young babies or those born prematurely. We also offer private sessions, private group sessions, or mixed age groups with siblings.


Infant Massage Class for Parents of Preemies or Very Young Infants

This 4-week class is designed especially for young infants under the age of 12 weeks or infants who were born prematurely and/or who have medical or special needs. Each week parents will learn how to massage different parts of their baby and how to adapt those strokes to meet their child’s individual needs. This class has a slower pace to support the babies’ immature nervous systems. Parents will also have an opportunity to meet other parents with similar challenges and exchange ideas. The class is open to infants’ ages 6 weeks to 12 months and their caregivers. This class is open to babies of ALL abilities!
