Thank you so much for your interest in joining our Baby Massage Course

 

 We currently don't have any new zoom Baby Massage courses scheduled but we have now implemented the Baby Massage to our Baby PlayLabs. 

We dedicate a section of the class to teaching the core baby massage techniques. We also focus on gross motor skills and language development where we teach baby sign language. You can view more about ClapHandies Baby PlayLabs here.

Benefits of a Baby Massage course

 

Relaxation

Massage soothes your baby and is a pleasurable experience for both you and your baby. Also, the relaxation element of the class, and the calm environment created is very nurturing for all mothers and can significantly help those affected by post natal depression.

Relief

Specific massage techniques are demonstrated which help to relieve colic, wind and constipation. In addition, baby massage can help the baby deal with surgery or difficult birth.

Stimulation

When you massage your baby regularly, their physical growth and development is stimulated in a variety of ways. Research studies show the respiratory, muscular, circulatory and immune systems all benefit from the positive effects of massage. Your baby may gain weight more easily and increase their ability to fight common infections which all babies are exposed to. In addition, massage promotes neurological development, and helps with the development of motor skills and coordination.

Bonding

Eye-to-eye and skin-to-skin contact and the exchange of soothing sounds and smells all help you and baby to bond.

Happier baby... happier parent

The baby massage course is not only about learning the massage techniques. During the course we learn a lot more about our babies. You will learn to identify and understand your babies cues leaving you better able to communicate.
