Birth to 1 year – ‘A Gift of Touch’

Baby Massage is a wonderful experience for both parent and baby. It can strengthen bonding and will give you added confidence in handling your baby. It will help stimulate growth and development, especially baby’s social and emotional development, ease colic, wind, constipation, teething pain, and create a sleep pattern, benefiting baby AND you! Baby Massage will aid recovery of postnatal depression and will help ease any feelings of isolation felt by many new mums.

What To Expect From A Course

Each class is unique, but are guaranteed to be fun, sociable, relaxed and sometimes noisy. Anything goes, baby is boss!

Over the 4 or 5 week course we build up the routine, each week a copy of the week’s routine will be yours to take home to practice and enjoy with your baby. Rhymes, songs and lullabies are incorporated into the routines to maximise benefits and add to the enjoyment.

  • Week 1 : Legs
  • Week 2 : Chest, Arms and Hands
  • Week 3 : Stomach (Including separate Colic Routine)
  • Week 4 : Face and Back
  • Week 5 / Rolling Sessions : Overall recap, Gentle Exercise Movements, Dad’s turn!

As well as learning to massage your baby we will talk about the benefits in more detail, recognising and following baby’s cues, which oils to use and how to adapt the massage as your baby grows.

Private classes are 75 minutes.  Refreshments are included giving you a chance to relax, chat to the other parents and feed your baby if necessary.

Want to do baby massage but uncertain about joining a centre?   A question often asked, this is where my private home courses are good as they are more intimate and personal being in a home environment with already established friends made through your ante natal group.It is popular for ante-natal groups to come as one whole group; they are great fun and a great way of keeping in contact. These can run from your homes or mine in Banstead.  These courses are VERY popular!

NCT MEMBERS Why not book as a whole group to create your own private course, dates and times flexible.

SURESTART CHILDREN’S CENTRE BANSTEAD – Classes run for and on behalf of Surestart in Banstead. Please book these courses through me. These classes  are a great way to meet new mum’s in the area. I am an independent Baby Massage Instructor, this means you dont have to live in Banstead to attend!

Special circumstances:

  • I know that not everyone will feel comfortable joining a group so if you would like a 121 the cost will be £70 for one session.
  • Are you a young mum, a teen mum who is not confident about joining a group? If so then please give me a ring or email me as I would love to meet you too and show you how much fun baby massage can be.
  • Massage will benefit babies with special needs as touch is not a treatment or therapy but a form of communication. All I ask is that you contact your health professional first to find out more about your baby’s health in relationship to massage.
  • Is your baby premature, massage can help as a calming and comforting strategy?
