Baby Massage is a wonderful way to spend time enjoying your new baby and deepening your bond. Nurturing touch has been proved to have a significant positive and lasting effect on babies. On this five week course you will learn how to massage your baby from head to toe. You will also learn a separate short tummy routine that can give very effective relief for discomforts like wind, constipation and colic. Baby massage can be very soothing for both baby and parent alike and when practiced regularly can help babies regulate their sleeping patterns. My Baby Massage classes are suitable from 2  weeks old to 6 months.

Baby Massage classes are completely baby-led and you are free to feed, change and sooth your baby as required. All massage strokes are repeated at least once during the course and instruction manuals are provided to help and encourage you to practice the massage techniques at home.

Each class ends with tea/coffee, healthy homemade treats and a chat. Many parents find it is a great way to meet other new parents in their area.

I can also provide private one to one or small group baby massage sessions in your own home anywhere in North Dublin, North Co. Dublin or Meath.
