We offer a private group baby massage course for babies aged 6 weeks until crawling.
Over 4 x one-hour sessions, in the comfort of your own home, you and your friends will learn an infant massage routine for the whole body: legs & feet, tummy, chest, arms & hands, face & back, enhanced with some simple songs & rhymes.
You will also learn a very effective wind & colic routine with a rhyme to help you remember it & help to calm your baby.
As well as your musical massage routine, you will receive a 'taster' of our popular Stretch & Sing course with gentle stretches, songs and rhymes.
Baby massage has a wealth of benefits - strengthening bonding, boosting growth & development, easing colic and wind, encouraging sleep and relaxation...and much more!
It is a great life skill to have as a parent and the course offers a lovely way to spend time with your antenatal friends, in a comfortable environment and at a time and day that suits you all!
The cost of the course (4 x 1 hr sessions) is £48 per parent & baby (group size: 5 to 10 parents/babies). No extra charge for twins (i.e two for the price of one!).
You will need to provide a venue in your or your friend's home within the Wimbledon SW19 - Raynes Park SW20 - New Malden / Motspur Park KT3 area that has enough room for your group to sit cross-legged on the floor with your babies on mats in front of you.
A 50ml bottle of organic sunflower oil and handouts for the whole massage routine, plus song/rhyme words is included in the course fee.
