Description

This is a 5 week course where you will learn baby massage techniques in a relaxed and informal environment.

This session is for families with children under the age of 5 who live within the Royston and Villages and Bramble Hill Children's Centres catchment area. If you are unsure whether you live within this area, please click here to check your postcode

Date of the sessions are: Wednesdays 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st January and 7th February. You are booking once for all 5 sessions.

£20 per parent and child.

Please book places for you and your child. Please bring three small towels (hand towels would be fine). Handouts and massage oil provided. We use organic, cold pressed vegetable massage oil with added vitmain E.

Small groups with the opportunity to share experiences and make new friends.

Suitable from babies from birth to pre crawling (unless baby is happy to still lay down). If your baby was born before 37 weeks then you must speak GP to see if there is any reason why massage cannot take place. Premature babies must also be older than their due date. Also, if your baby has got any medical conditions or on any medication then you must check with your GP or health visitor to check if there is any reason why you cannot massage your baby. It is best to avoid baby massage for 48hrs after vaccinations. However we would still encourage you to come along and watch the session.
