Baby Classes Norwich Norfolk


Baby Massage Norwich

Baby massage is a long standing tradition where a parent or primary carer lovingly strokes or holds their baby.

Soothing holds or rhythmic strokes are given to the baby in a sequence developed over many years.

The role of an instructor is to support parents/care givers to promote positive touch and communication through massage.
In a baby massage course you will be taught:

  • Massage strokes for legs, feet, stomach, chest, arms, hands, face and back
  • A short colic routine – Gentle movements and touch relaxation
  • The best time and for how long to massage
  • What baby massage oils to use
  • How to adopt the strokes for your baby’s individual needs and the growing child
Baby massage has benefits for both the baby and parent/carer. Its primary benefit is to promote bonding and secure attachment helping your baby feel loved, valued and respected.

As a result it can reduce crying and emotional distress, increase relaxation and promote sleep. The massage strokes themselves can provide relief from wind, colic, constipation and teething discomfort.

Baby massage classes are not just about learning strokes, they are designed to relax your baby and you and include time for informal discussions on the joys and challenges of parenting. Sessions can therefore last up-to 90 minutes.
Baby massage courses are taught in a group or on a one to one basis over a 5 week period. This gives both parent and baby time to learn and become accustomed to massage.
A course of 5 sessions is £55 in a group setting.
