Baby Massage

Ioana our Complementary Massage Therapist has completed her training in Baby Massage recently with The Scottish School of Child & Baby Massage. She is offering 1-1, 1-2 or 1-3 private baby massage classes where you can learn massage techniques to use on your baby. Some babies may find a formal class overwhelming so we have these small classes which we can adapt time wise to suit you and your baby.

Baby Massage is a lovely time to spend with your baby helping you bond more closely. Baby Massage is the gentle movement with your hands in a rhythmic routine. It can be a nice routine for your baby after bath time to wind down before bedtime.
Benefits of Baby Massage are:

– improved positive interaction with your baby
– relaxes your baby
– relieves discomfort from constipation, gas and colic
– improves blood circulation
– helps your baby sleep better
– stimulates brain development
– improves sensory awareness

We would recommend babies to be as young as possible for these sessions as we all know how much they can start to move around the older they get. Ideally between 6 weeks (after this allows time for the baby to settle into a routine and have had their 6 week check) and 6 months old would be best.

** If you have booked a block of 3 Pregnancy Massages with us you will receive £10 off a Private 1-1 baby massage class **

Please note we only offer these sessions on a Sunday. If you have any questions, please do give us a call or an email.
