Baby Massage

Baby Massage

Baby massage has been used in many cultures for centuries, but has gained a lot of popularity in the west since the 1990’s.

As a qualified baby massage instructor with IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage), I can offer classes to parents and care givers of babies up to 1 year old.

The IAIM baby massage course takes elements from Indian Massage, Swedish Massage as well as baby yoga and reflexology.
