Class is taught in about 5 sessions, usually a week apart, so that parent and baby have time to become acclimated to this new form of nurturing touch. Class is based on the teachings from Vimala McClure and the International Association of Infant Massage.
What you will learn:
Parents and caregivers are educated on how to massage baby and how to interact with baby based on baby's cues.
Relaxation, parent empowerment, respect, bonding, why babies cry, body language, positioning, pressure, rate, rhythm, and length of massage are some of the topics discussed in class.
