Baby Massage and Gentle Sensory* is set in warm candlelight, soft lighting and with relaxing music playing. This relaxed and informative four week, Gentle Sensory with Baby massage course is suitable for babies from 5- 6 weeks old.
Each four week course, commences on the first Wednesday of every month, with two session times to choose from.
The morning classes start at 10:30am -12:00 and the afternoon classes start at 1:00pm -2:30pm.
Please be reassured that this is a flexible 90mins to allow for feeding, nappy changes and anything that you or your little one may need, besides we need to allow time for me to spoil you with a hot/cold drink to wash down the homemade cake!
What is involved in each session?
Week one: Before we massage legs and feet, we learn the benefits of massaging those areas and start to help with regulating the babies circulation as well as learning how to do a basic allergy test and me showing you areas on the feet that help with tummy problems we’ll gently use various techniques and equipment to softly stimulate your little ones legs, feet and toes.
Week two: On the second week we massage arms, hands and tummy, and I will teach you some great techniques, to relax the tummy muscles, which can help with any colic, constipation, trapped wind etc. but before this we’ll relax the babies by using gentle sensory play techniques, getting them used to the environment and then we’ll move onto the massage.
Week three: This week we focus on the face, scalp and back, which can be great for congestion, chesty coughs, and relaxation of the face & back muscles. Before doing this we’ll explore some more sensory techniques tailored to your babies particular interests, this could be to help with building up neck muscles, eye muscles, hand to eye co-ordination or exploring different textures for example.
Week four: The last session where we bring the whole Massage routine together, along with some Baby Yoga techniques and then of course if there’s enough time left you’re more than welcome to stay for some sensory free play whilst I put the kettle back on.
The course numbers are kept low to a maximum of 6 or 7 , which means you get maximum attention from me and we can go with the flow and allow time for feeding etc. So there's no rush.
