Event description

Description

Our baby massage classes are suitable for children from childbirth up to around 6 months, depending on mobility (the older they are the more mobile they get, so a 1 to 1 ½ hr set quiet time during the day becomes more of a challenge, though not impossible!!)

The Massage Therapy Course runs over 5 consecutive weeks, and sessions will last up to an hour. The course includes weekly handouts, massage oil for use in the class, though you can bring your own if preferred, and a certificate of completion. Note also that, during our sessions, only the parent (i.e. you) massages your baby. The instructor will demonstrate on a doll. Should you not be able to attend one of the sessions, it may be possible to re-arrange a subsequent session, but that would need to be in consultation with the massage therapist.

Please note that for babies with motor related disorders we can offer 1:1 sessions if preferred, otherwise the sessions are conducted in a group setting (up to 7 max).

Members of our PIPS team are qualified baby massage instructors. Using the IAIM approach (International Association of Infant Massage) PIPS promotes the benefits of nurturing touch and communication between babies and parents.

Infant massage can help:

* Strengthen baby-parent communication

* Enhance your understanding of baby’s development

* Boost self-esteem in parenting

* Relax parent and baby

* Encourage a deeper sleep for baby

* Relieve wind, colic and constipation

* Reduce crying

You can find out more about research on IAIM baby massage at www.babymassage.co.uk/pips

PIPS massage instruction is open to parents/caregivers of babies, from 6-8 weeks to eight months of age, including preterm and high risk infants.

Some younger or preterm/high risk babies may not be able tolerate full body massage but your instructor can tailor the session to meet your needs.
