I’m delighted to announce that Appleton Baby Massage will be providing baby massage courses at InHale Yoga studio in Hale from November. This is a beautiful and calming space right in the heart of the village of Hale.  The studio is a fantastic space, clean and warm and so conducive for massage.  The studio offers many yoga classes, including pregnancy and postnatel yoga and baby yoga. The first baby massage course will start Friday 3 November at 11.30am running over 5 weeks. Excellent way to ease into the festive season! Parents can...

First activity with baby should be memorable – environment is key

Posted by on Aug 30, 2017 in Latest News | 0 comments

As a new mum, you discover there is a whole new world of activities to do with baby. As baby massage classes can be taken from when baby is around 5-6 weeks old, it’s generally the first baby activity mums sign up to so naturally, this should be a positive memorable experience as you ease into the realm of motherhood. Traditionally classes are held in church halls or community centres, which are great venues for many classes, but not always conducive for baby massage. Baby lies on a mat, which is on the floor and you’re sitting on...

Ease into 2017 with classes

Posted by on Jan 2, 2017 in Latest News | 0 comments

Classes resume for 2017 for the new term and two massage courses for January are fully booked! Having a Winter baby is tough as it’s cold, nights draw in early and as a new mum you feel it’s difficult to venture out, worried with how to wrap baby – are they too cold, too warm?  But first Christmas for babies are nice – an excuse to not do anything and to sit back…’oh I can’t do that, I’m feeding baby’.  Family get involved wanting to cuddle, although probably too much stimulation for...

Courses kick off again for the new term

Posted by on Sep 8, 2016 in Latest News | 0 comments

Today was the start of a new baby massage course with a new group of mums and their little ones. All of the group are new mums and taking their first activity with their baby. I sense their nervousness with what they’ve let themselves in for.  It’s that fear of the unknown with the underworld of baby activities and what’s expected and wondering how does it all work. Plus the nightmare planning of getting out of the house, find where you have to go, arrive for a certain time and remember everything you possibly need for a...

Baby massage course to run through the Summer holidays

Posted by on Jul 8, 2016 in Latest News | 0 comments

As a new mum Summer can be a lonely and difficult time as many classes and meet up groups stop over the holidays – and it’s quite a shock as you’re not prepared for it. This is primarily because lots of clubs and classes are run by mums and their children are off school, and many people cannot commit to a full course because of holidays. July and August can be a long month if you’re stuck at home with a new baby and desperate to have some structure to your day and meet other mums. Baby massage classes are perfect for...
