4 – Week Baby Massage Course

We’re excited to launch our 4 week baby massage course with Fix Paediatric Osteopath, Anastasia Trinder! We’re now holding this in person at our East Village studio!

The course offers an opportunity for parents to experience how to communicate with their baby through nurturing touch and massage, drawing from both Indian and Swedish massage traditions, as well as incorporating principles from yoga and reflexology.

Baby massage classes follow the curriculum of the IAIM (the International Association of Infant Massage) and are taught in a relaxed and welcoming environment.

Anastasia will demonstrate the strokes on a doll, teaching parents or caregivers how to massage their baby. Classes are 1hr in length. Each session is held at weekly intervals to allow you and baby to absorb all the information and get used to the massage.

On the course you will learn

  • Massage strokes for legs, feet, stomach, chest, arms, hands, face and back
  • A short colic routine
  • Gentle movements helping your child to prepare for crawling, walking and coordination.
  • Touch relaxation
  • The importance of good positioning
  • The best time and for how long to massage
  • What massage oils to use
  • How to adapt the strokes for your baby’s individual needs and the growing child

Studies from around the world have shown that baby massage reduces post-natal depression and can improve parent/baby relationships.

Our baby massage classes are baby-led, friendly and relaxed, suitable for babies from birth through to twelve months.
