Baby Massage is a great tool to develop strong bonds with our babies. As well as giving them a lovely experience, with Baby Massage you learn how to better understand your baby’s cues and how to respond to those cues through the power of touch. It helps you regain confidence in your inner knowledge, and teaches you techniques to alleviate those challenging moments such as colic or restlessness; relaxing your baby for a peaceful – and much awaited – night’s sleep.
As a mother of two, and certified Baby Massage Instructor with IAIM, I know how important it is to be with your baby in a cosy, warm and comfortable environment. That’s why at Flourishing Baby, with each baby massage session I provide everything you need for a hassle-free experience to relax and bond with your baby.
- Herbal (and builder’s) teas, freshly cut fruit, and pastries to make you feel pampered and at home.
- Warm, cosy and nicely-lit room, so that you and your baby feel relaxed and happy.
- Friendly and relaxed sessions, giving you the confidence for a time-out should your baby need changing or feeding.
- Extended session times, giving you plenty of time within each session to make friends, exchange experiences, and learn each baby massage stroke with confidence – no more rushing to get changed and out of the door!
- A unique Flourishing Baby Support Package, to help you master your technique through each stage of Baby Massage.
- Mats and organic baby massage oil provided, so you can just pick up your baby, changing bag and go!
- Plus! Groups are kept small, to give you the opportunity to get to know each other, and there are a range of venues and start dates to suit your needs.
Flourishing Baby sessions follow the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) curriculum, so you can be sure that they form part of a well respected, well researched and highly endorsed baby massage programme.
