Baby Massage Courses with Melissa

Tuesday’s 1.45-2.45pm at Millfield Fitness Studio

Baby massage is one way of expressing love, caring and respect through touch that has been shown to have many benefits to parent-child attachment and children’s development. It is an interaction that involves gentle strokes and caresses over the babies skin. It helps develop a feeling of being loved, respected and secure, and is an excellent way of connecting and bonding with your baby.

Baby massage can also:

  • Alleviate trapped wind, soothe colic and alleviate constipation
  • Ease the pain of teething
  • Help unblock baby’s blocked nose, and relieve symptoms of chest infections
  • Help to open airways and improve baby’s breathing
  • Alleviate the effects of post natal depression
  • Promote relaxation and can improve sleep, and the quality of sleep
  • Improve circulation
  • Strengthen and tone muscles, and promote growth

Baby massage is suitable from birth, but it is recommended to wait until the baby is at least 4 weeks old to ensure they gain the most from it. Baby massage can also be performed on premature babies.

The baby massage course runs over 4 weeks (1 hour each week) and costs £40, which includes handouts and a 50 ml bottle of grapeseed oil.

The courses run for groups of up to 8 parents and babies.
