Infant massage is a beautiful and loving way to provide sensory input and foster positive interaction with your baby. This class will provide caregivers a set of proven techniques and methods for systematically massaging infants. Techniques will include movements such as rubbing, kneading, pressing, and rolling for therapeutic purposes.
This class is a great way to take time out to be with your baby and other parents (this class is open to ALL caregivers). Learning about techniques to help your baby with gas, digestion, tummy time and fussiness can hep you feel more calm and confident as a parent.
Therapeutic benefits include improved circulation, relaxation of muscles, relief of pain, restoration of metabolic balance, and most importantly, spending quality one-on-one time with baby. Essential oils can also have many benefits when used in conjunction with infant massage when used safely. A small amount of education on essential oil use will be incorporated into each class, however their use will be completely optional.
This 4 week long series, taught by Sarah Korbeck, a Certified Infant Massage Instructor, is designed for infants 4 weeks up to pre-crawling and their parents, grandparents, and primary caregivers. Each of the infant massage classes in the series will last approximately 60 minutes.
Cost $75 for 4wk series
