The classes are held in a relaxed, informal room. They are ideally taught over five weeks in order to give both the parent and baby time to learn and become accustomed to the massage. With elements of baby yoga and baby reflexology they also include time for parent relaxation and informal discussion on the joys and challenges of parenting.
Classes are suitable for all parents and all babies up to one year old. Only the parents will massage the baby as the instructor will demonstrate the strokes on a doll.
Detailed massage stroke handouts will be available.
The classes are baby led, so don’t be concerned about the class coinciding with sleep or feed times. Spare dolls are available to practice on if your baby is sleeping.
Babies are generally massaged naked apart from a loose nappy.
Alternatively if you are a group of friends who can’t get to the class why not try hosting your own classes offered half price for the host – minimum number of 3 babies required.
Amanda - mum to Fraser:
"Lisa is lovely and very friendly. She explains the theory really well and is extremely knowledgeable. Fraser really enjoyed it and I got to have reflexology at the end as well!"
