Baby Massage Courses
I deliver the well respected comprehensive curriculum of The International Association of Infant Massage; the largest & longest standing worldwide organisation, founded by Vimala McClure in the early 1980s. The IAIM course draws from both the Indian & Swedish massage traditions, incorporating principles from yoga & reflexology. The curriculum covers touch, movement, relaxation, interaction & communication. www.iaimbabymassage.co.uk/danielerobson
My Approach in Classes: Only you massage your baby. I instruct by demonstrating on a doll. Relaxed classes include time for informal parent discussion. Massage strokes are reviewed each week & handouts given for home practice. During classes babies can be babies so please don’t worry about class times coinciding with sleep or feeding, or your baby crying.
Who are classes for? All babies from birth to 1 year old and all parents/primary care givers.
Benefits for your baby: Feeling securely attached / Reduced crying & emotional distress / Increased levels of relaxation / Development of physical & emotional awareness / Relief from wind, colic & constipation.
Benefits for you: Increased understanding of your baby’s engagement cues & behavioural states / Feeling closer to your baby / Relaxing benefits of giving your baby nurturing touch / Focused quality time with your baby / Opportunity to socialise in a welcoming & supportive environment / Fun learning a lifelong skill you can adapt as your child grows.
