about our baby massage classes

The first few months after the birth of a baby can be both joyful and challenging. Baby massage classes can help support parents through this time of change by allowing them the time and space to nurture themselves as well as their babies.

For the baby, a massage is far more than a luxurious experience or physical therapy. It is a tool for maintaining health and well being on many different levels, as well as providing parent and baby with time to bond, relax and communicate with one another.
