Our Baby Massage classes are offered as a private session at home or online session. You will learn about how to massage your baby, which has multiple benefits such as bonding with your baby, aiding digestion and relaxation.

Participants learn a combination of Swedish and Indian massage techniques along with some reflexology and yoga. The course is split into several unique sessions, during which a new massage technique is taught and practiced for a different part of the body. By the end of the course, the full baby massage technique will be learned and practiced. Parents receive informational handouts and massage oils at the end of the course, allowing them to continue the art of baby massage at home.
