About Baby Massage 

 

Baby Massage is a technique that has been practiced in many parts of the world since ancient times. It has been introduced to western cultures over the past 40 years and is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Our approach to baby massage draws on Indian and Swedish massage traditions, and also incorporates principles from reflexology and yoga. Massaging your baby provides nurturing touch and communication, both of which are essential for the healthy development of babies and children, and is now recognised as valuable by medical science.

 

Benefits for baby:

  • Feeling more loved, valued and respected

  • Experiencing better relaxation and improved sleep patterns

  • Stimulating sensory, cognitive and language development

  • Relieving gas, wind, colic, constipation and other digestive discomforts

 

Benefits for mother:

  • Enjoying the relaxed time to focus on your baby

  • Meeting other mothers and discussing parenting topics in a supportive environment

  • Making “mummy” friends—many of my groups carry on getting together long after the 5 weeks are over.

  • Increased confidence from gaining another technique to help soothe your baby

  • Learning a parenting skill that you can use throughout your children’s lives

 

 

 

 

The Classes

 

We offer 5-week baby massage classes for mothers and babies from birth to age one.  Our Baby Massage classes are run by Amy who is a Certified Infant Massage Instructor with The International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) since 2011, and is currently the IAIM country contact person for the UAE.  Amy is also a former midwife and a lactation consultant and a licensed BabyCalm Consultant.  Our relaxed sessions include time each week for informal discussion between participants and group discussion on topics such as sleeping, crying, TummyTime tips, adjusting to motherhood, colic, bonding, child development, baby wearing and much more. Amy expertly combines all her skills and qualifications to make this a unique course which many participants have described as being so much more than a massage class!

 

What you will learn:

 

  • Massage strokes for legs, feet, stomach, chest, arms, hands, face and back

  • A short colic routine

  • Gentle movements and touch relaxation

  • The best time and for how long to massage

  • What massage oils to use

  • How to adapt the strokes for your baby's individual needs and the growing child

  • A “quickie” full body massage when you don’t have time for the whole routine

  • The importance of tummy time for baby and how to help baby enjoy and thrive during tummy time, rather than just find it frustrating.

 

Ideal for mums and babies from birth to crawling and includes your own bottle of baby massage oil, handouts & light refreshments.

 

Private baby massage classes can be arranged by appointment if you are unable to join a group class.   These are done in 3 1-hour sessions, weekly in your home.  The price is 300 for each session.  If travel distance is far additional fees may be charged for time and travel.

 

             

 

                   The class was so much   more   than  a baby massage class  —  love, laughter, and tears were shared!”
