ABOUT BABY MASSAGE
Baby massage is a wonderful way to bond with your baby and learn techniques for easing things like colic and teething pain. As a mother of a new baby I know some of the fantastic benefits from learning a series of massage strokes that can be used at all times of day.
As well as being relaxing and calming for both you and baby, infant massage promotes muscular development and coordination and gives you some spend special time with your baby.
Long before babies are able to speak, they communicate with the world around them through touch. The power of touch to soothe and heal is instinctive. If a baby cries, for example, we often cuddle them or stroke their back. Massaging your baby is an extension of this natural impulse.
Note: Babies can receive a gentle massage in the form of stroking from birth but it is advisable for babies to attend classes after they have had their eight week check with their GP.
HOW DOES A BABY MASSAGE COURSE WORK?
I teach a comprehensive baby massage course that shows you everything you need to know about massaging your baby. I explain what types of oils to use, when to avoid massage, cues for a happy baby and of course the massage strokes themselves. I even throw in a few fun songs along the way to help make it fun! During the sessions you have with me, whether online or in person you receive all the knowledge you need to enjoy massage with your baby at home (including a handy guide to baby massage)!
The course includes:
Introduction including about massage oil, when to massage, permission, leg massage routine.
Massage strokes for the legs and feet
Massage strokes for the tummy and chest
Massage strokes for the arms and face
Massage strokes for the back
Plus a few fun songs that include massage movements!
Note: If you study in person with Susan you also receive a FREE 50ml bottle of organic sunflower oil to use for your massage and access to the online course Soothe Baby Soothe.
WHERE CAN I LEARN BABY MASSAGE?
You can enjoy baby massage with me in two different ways:
Private or small group classes and workshops
These private sessions are great if you want me to come to you to give you a tailored massage class for you and your baby. I will show you all the massage strokes and provide all the information you need to enjoy massage with your baby. Sessions can also be booked for small groups if you have a group of friends that wish to do baby massage together.
Location: Anywhere in the Woking area - I come to you or you can visit me in Knaphill.
Cost: £40 per hour for private tuition. The full massage course can usually be taught in 2-3 sessions. For small groups of two or more babies (with a limit of 5 babies) cost is £50-60 per hour in total.
The online course Soothe Baby Soothe is really convenient for those of you who wish to stay at home and learn in the comfort of your own home and at whatever time works for you (as we all know babies don't always work to a timetable!!)
Location: Anywhere in the world! As long as you have a laptop you ca enjoy the course from the comfort of your own home.
Cost: £30 for lifetime access.
