Infant Massage used to be an art passed down from generation to generation. Through touch, infants learn how to communicate, foster positive attachment to their caretakers, and understand that they are respected and their emotions are validated. Parents also learn to read baby's cues, understand their cries and alertness states and develop communication with their babies on a physical, verbal and intuitive level. During this four week series you will learn various massage techniques for baby which blend styles of Swedish massage, Indian massage, and yoga. You will have the opportunity to practice on baby dolls if your baby is asleep.
Each week we will have time for a guided discussion to connect to other families, review the massage strokes from previous weeks and address any questions that have come up. During our last class together, you will also learn adaptations for older siblings (or the growing child), rhymes and riddles to sing to baby and a little celebration potluck!
This class is entirely baby-led. The best lesson massage teaches us is how to listen to one another and to our children. Holding a baby who is upset, nursing, or changing a diaper are all encouraged and honored and there will be comfortable space for you to do all that you need to make sure baby is happy. We will review strokes and provide worksheets of all of the songs and massages so that all parent couples are caught up each week.
Investment: $150 for all sessions and includes complimentary bottle of organic cold-pressed digestible oil, packets and folders with information, research and all of the strokes covered during class. Register Here
