I qualified as a Baby Massage Instructor through the Scottish School of Child and Baby Massage. I am able to combine my skills as a holistic massage therapist and my many years experience of professional child care in my approach.
The baby massage courses run for 5 weeks. Sessions last about hour. I like to create a relaxing atmosphere where neither parent nor baby is put under undue pressure. Sessions allow time for parents to feed/change/cuddle their babies. There is no rush!!!
I like to work with a small group of parents and their babies. This ensures plenty of time for individual attention and instruction. There is also time to enjoy a chat/cup of tea and home baking. For first time mothers, this social contact is especially valuable.
For those who would prefer the classes in their own home I am able to offer 1-2-1 sessions.
When to begin baby massage:
I usually suggest from 6 weeks to crawling. But if parents are comfortable they are more than welcome earlier. Older infants may benefit from 1-2-1 sessions.
