Learn to massage your baby in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere! Infant massage is taught to new or expectant parents as a way of promoting attachment and sensitivity to a baby’s cues, all the while enhancing development. In this class you will learn the numerous benefits of infant massage and how to massage your baby. Only you massage your baby. The instructor’s demonstrations are done using a doll. The course covers baby’s whole body: legs and feet, stomach, chest, face, arms and hands, back, and includes Gentle Movements and a Colic Relief Routine. Each class starts with a new area of the body and includes new strokes. Strokes from the previous weeks will also be practiced.
