Infants and Toddlers
Infant Massage Class for Parents
2021 3-Week Sessions
Come learn how to massage your baby to strengthen your bond and improve his or her sleep and digestion. This 3-week class is designed especially for parents of young infants, including those who were born prematurely and/or who have medical issues 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 infant’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 parenting challenges and exchange ideas. Parents are encouraged to ask questions regarding feeding and motor skill development from our developmental expert. The class is open to infants ages 6 weeks to 12 months and their caregivers. This class is open to babies of ALL abilities!
There are many benefits of massage for both parents and babies.
