Benefits of Baby Massage
Relief – Baby massage can help to offer relief from the discomfort of digestive pain caused by wind or constipation. It can also be used to soothe teething pain and help relieve nasal and chest congestion if baby has a cold.
Relaxation – When you massage your baby, both of your bodies produce lovely “feel good” hormones which can help you both to relax. A more relaxed baby is likely to feed and sleep better.
Development – Baby massage can help to mature the nervous system and strengthen bones and joints. It stimulates and supports your baby’s physical, emotional and social development.
Bonding – Oxytocin “the nurturing, love hormone” is produced when you massage your baby which helps to encourage and develop bonds between you

What if my baby cries?
We don’t mind! You may find that your baby cries during part of the massage session. This is completely normal and does not mean that you are doing something wrong or that your baby does not like what you are doing. If your baby begins to cry during the massage you are the best judge of whether to finish the massage, have a break in our chill out zone or continue. Try to identify your baby is crying by listening to their cries. Are they hungry,hot/cold need a nappy change etc?
If you feel your baby has had enough, try again another day. Feel free to go and play or relax in our nursery upstairs. Remember you are learning about massage together. If you have an active or sensitive baby, then keep sessions short. A little bit of massage works wonders!
What should I bring with me to the course?
A towel to go over the mat, milk for your baby (we are feeding friendly, which ever method you use) pram blanket, small toy, a cushion and anything else that will help you and your baby be comfortable.
Can I bring my other children with me?
Only babies babies and children booked onto the course/session can attend our classes due to health and safety reasons.
What if my baby is due their immunisations during the period of the course?
We advise that baby massage is avoided for 72 hours after an immunisation. However, please check with your health professional for their advice if in doubt. If your baby can not have a massage, you are still welcome to attend and watch the session.
What if I miss a session?
