Want to improve your baby’s health, mood and sleep? Want your baby to cry and fuss less? Join this baby massage workshop for couples, a great way to soothe your baby and spend quality time with your partner.
Baby massage is a fantastic way for you to nurture, love and care for your baby as a family. Through positive touch and warm non-verbal communication, you and your partner will learn how to perform soothing massage strokes drawn from Indian and Swedish massage traditions and principles of yoga and reflexology.
Baby massage can bring about a wealth of benefits to both babies and parents alike. A gentle baby massage can slowly arouse the baby's central nervous system, through soothing, rhythmic movements that help ease and regulate your baby’s heart rate and breathing. It helps your baby loosen up and relax and the result is less crying and better quality sleep. A loving baby massage can also stimulate your baby’s circulatory and digestive system to provide the ultimate relief from wind, colic, constipation and teething discomfort.
For parents, this is a fantastic way for you to form a deeper connection to your baby, as it provides the perfect opportunity to chat with your baby and exchange plenty of eye contact. For dads, this is a wonderful opportunity to indulge in the hands-on care for your baby which you may not always have due to work.
