 Infant Massage

A course of three 45 minute sessions in the privacy of your own home.£60.00

(Within 5 miles of Penarth. A small mileage charge will be applied for further distances)

Group classes are often available but the most intimate way for parent and baby to learn is in a one-to-one teaching environment.

Touch is a primary human need and the massage routine taught encourages infant/parental bonding through skin-to-skin contact. A baby will respond to your massage in two ways. Firstly, there is the physical effect on their body. Secondly, there are psychological effects – feeling safe, secure, loved and cared for.

Research at Imperial College London Faculty of Medicines found that infant massage can reinforce the feeling of closeness between mother and infant. This is especially useful in cases of postnatal depression and this close bond can also increase breast milk production.
