THE ULTIMATE INFANT MASSAGE CLASSES FOR BOTH YOU AND YOUR BABY! UNLIKE ANY OTHER BABY MASSAGE CLASSES AROUND!
Both our Developmental Baby Massage, and Tiny Story Massage sessions, held at our beautiful HQ in CHalkwell, are small, intimate, and have plenty of space to keep everyone safe.
The DEVELOPMENTAL BABY MASSAGE sessions are aimed at younger babies (suitable from 5 weeks old up to pre-crawling) to come along with parents, grandparents, or other caregivers.
We work through releasing physiological flexion in the baby, how to enable and encourage tummy time exploration, go through massage tricks and techniques to help soothe, relieve tension and calm your little ones, and help encourage and build confidence in handling your tiny humans.
Not forgetting the adults, we like to focus some loving energy on you too. Every class begins with some adult relaxation, where we take a little time getting into a calm and comfortable position, do some basic breath work, and finish with a short guided meditation to help bring you into your zen zone, and create a chilled atmosphere for you. Plus, we always make time at the end for a natter with new friends over a hot cuppa and biscuits.
FYI These sessions were voted by The Independent as being one of the top 13 NATIONAL classes to do with your baby during lockdown. Not bad eh?!?!
Our NEW TINY STORY MASSAGE sessions offer something a little more interactive for those crawlers out there.
The perfect follow-on from the developmental classes, these sessions are also a great way to introduce massage to older, crawling babies and young toddlers, who may be completely new to it. Suitable from 6-20 months, these sessions are all about combining simple massage strokes with the imagination and magic of storytelling.
Every session is completely different, running with 10 different themes throughout the year. There are themed toys and props each week set up for them to explore, music to fit in with the chosen theme and lots of sound effects to really create a magical space for the babies to have fun in. In each session, we begin with the story massage basics, before we use the strokes to explore the nursery rhymes, poems and stories applicable to that weeks theme.
The sessions are child lead, which means they are always fun, and gives them plenty of time for free play at the end. Parents get the chance to have a natter over a hot drink and cake, whilst the kids run free! The perfect way to spend an hour!
Both the Developmental and Tiny Story Massage courses can be enjoyed in the regular classes, or are available as Private 1-2-1 or Group sessions too. So you can enjoy them either in the studio, or from the comfort of your own home virtually via Zoom.
