    Classes are designed around the baby and is taught at a pace that suits both parent and baby. The techniques used are based on the work of Vimala McClure, author of Infant Massage a Hand book for Loving Parents and the founder of the organization IAIM. As an infant massage instructor I feel that infant massage should be part of the development of the child and not just at the baby stage. Through out the classes there are tips on how to continue the massage through out their young lives and most of all make it fun.

    Colicky Baby

    Based on years of research

    The colic stroke is adapted to cover other digestive problems including; constipation, wind and bloating. A baby suffering with any of the above will usually tend to cry often and bring there knees up to there chest. The colic routine is done in the morning, afternoon and evening for two weeks. It is important for parents to persevere, years of research from ‘the touch institute’ who have conducted years of research into infant massage.

     

    There are different topics that are covered including:

    · Crying

    · "Spoiling"

    · Colic

    · Massage for a developing child

    Yoga and Reflexology - Lodge Road Therapy

    Yoga and Reflexology

    Enjoyable and relaxing for infants

    Yoga based exercise is also included in the classes and there will be nursery rhymes included also. There will be hand outs given to the parents to give some assistance.

     

    Reflexology, the use of pressure points on the foot that correspond with the body, is performed very gently in the infant massage by putting light pressure on the sole of the feet. Infants can become very relaxed when having their feet massaged.

     

    This is a very enjoyable class and refreshments are available to all parents and carers. It provides them with the opportunity to chat and swap ideas as this can be an isolating time for you and your baby.

     

    The Infant Massage classes can be attended from birth until the child is one year old. For a booking form please click here.
