Baby Massage has many benefits, such as enhancing bonding, promoting better circulation, improving digestion, giving emotional security, improving muscular development and coordination. It can help encourage better sleep patterns and with problems such as colic, colds, teething, and constipation.
Many cultures start the practice of massage from birth, to strengthen the bond with their children, calm and help them sleep, relieve wind and colic and generally assist with healthy development. In India, for example, it is a traditional custom to give the baby a daily massage with oil, followed by yoga and finally a warm bath.
This is the first class in a 5-weeks-course. For registration please scroll down.

This (and any future) baby massage course consists of five classes á 60 minutes. For this course, classes are held on each Thursday from the 17.01. until the 14.01. Each week you will learn one body part and review the strokes you've learned the week before. You will get handouts of the strokes for you to keep so you can practice the strokes at home.
We also make sure that there is time set aside each week for discussions. The main topics covered are crying, colic, sleep, but it's also a forum for you to raise any parenting issues you may have.
