Massage connects you to your baby. Strengthen your bond and deepen your understanding of your baby through massage. In every massage class you will learn techniques that help soothe discomfort, enhance sleep, and improve immune function. Through their sense of touch babies learn about their world. Massage promotes physical and emotional development and over all well-being. Research supports that regularly massaged babies are more relaxed, acquire mental and motor skills earlier and gain weight faster than non-massaged babies.
Suggested ages: 4weeks-6mo (or crawling)
Bring a blanket to lay your baby on; oil will be provided. Price is per family.
