MASSAGE & MOVEMENT
Our MASSAGE & MOVEMENT sessions offer something a little more interactive and fun for those little crawlers out there.
These new classes offer parents and carers a simple, fun, fully inclusive and effective class to enjoy with their sitting, crawling and walking babies, which combines positive touch, massage, baby yoga, story, song, rhyme and creative developmental play.
We focus on the magic of developmental massage and baby yoga combined with the 12 simple strokes of story massage. The class is done fully clothed and without oil and each week we have a different theme to explore. So you won’t ever get bored!
BENEFITS OF THESE SESSIONS
Gives parents the opportunity to continue to offer nurturing massage as the child grows, and adapt it for older babies on the move.
Repetition of songs and stories to encourage anticipation, language development, focus, concentration, communication, turn taking and socialising skills.
Babies and parents enjoy the fun, creativity and interaction of positive touch through the sessions.
Gives adults to opportunity to come to a safe space, connect, make friends, and relax with their little ones through the medium of story telling.
THE BENEFITS OF POSITIVE TOUCH ON OUR CHILDREN IS BACKED BY EXTENSIVE RESEARCH FROM THE TOUCH RESEARCH INSTITUTE MIAMI:

Improved social skills Increased engagement in activities.
Better communication Building respect and positive relationships.
Children grow up with a healthy self image and a sense of appropriate boundaries.
