How does it work?

Small intimate groups of Mummies and their little bundles (from 6 weeks old and beyond) get together each week for 4 weeks.

Each week we go over the amount of pressure that is safe to use on your baby, we ask the babies for permission and even though we use a super safe oil (Grapeseed) we show you how to do an allergy test in case you decide to move onto a different oil one day.

We then go through that week’s demonstration together then pair up to repeat then I go over it again so you would’ve done the routine 3 times before practising at home with your handouts, the following week we go over it all again before moving onto the next routine – all this will be explained at your Introduction to baby massage session.

Our four weekly courses are held at The Nesting Place on Wednesday Mornings 10:30-11:30. For more information and to book your place on the next available course please email Kia at http://www.takesometime.co.uk/contact/

Great Baby Massage Course!

‘Great baby massage course. Very relaxed and informative. Kia was so patient, if the babies needed feeding or if you were running late she always had time to go over anything you might have missed. And most importantly the babies enjoyed it! Would recommend’ Kathryn,Chelmsford
