Why baby massage?

Baby-Massage-makes-your-baby-happy-Warrington-CheshireBaby massage is much more than a method for simply relaxing a baby. It’s a means of communication in itself, drawing on the sense of touch, sight, sound and smell to help parents and their babies to get to know and understand each other.

Massage plays a huge role in developing that special bond between parent and baby, whilst also helping alleviate common baby ailments, such as colic, constipation and wind.

This is great way to meet other Mums (or Dads) and share your experiences of parenthood. During the course you will be guided through the strokes and how to apply them properly on your baby. Each week we will work on a different part of the body, starting with the legs and making our way up to the head, face and back.

Babies are unpredictable and the needs of your baby come first so if you feel the need to feed, comfort or snuggle up with your baby, please do. You will not miss out on anything, we will go over the sequences from the previous week, in addition you will be given course notes to help you recap.
