Baby Massage offers a fantastic opportunity for you to interact with your baby in a nurturing way.

Studies show that baby massage can:

  • help babies sleep better, and cry and “fuss” less
  • help with trapped wind or constipation and can soothe colic
  • build parents’ confidence in reading baby’s cues and communicating with them
  • help mums suffering from post natal depression

You can read more about the benefits of baby massage here.

Learning baby massage with us is easy, friendly and relaxing!  The massage techniques are taught over a period of weekly sessions.  Each time you learn new strokes and build up until you have learnt the full routine and can massage your baby from head to toe!

You will also be given a booklet containing the strokes you’ve learned and some high quality organic oil to take away and use at home.

What previous class members have said:

“lovely relaxed environment”

“my little girl always sleeps really well after her massage!”

There are a number of different ways to learn Baby Massage with us:

Group courses:

A great way to spend quality 1-to-1 time with your baby, at the same time as meeting other parents and babies.

Courses run for an hour per week over five weeks, gradually learning the massage strokes together.

All classes are baby led!  We expect babies to need cuddles, feeds and nappy changes, and this happens naturally as needed during the class.  We don’t expect them to lie still or “perform” for the whole class!  We want you and baby to feel relaxed and to learn skills you can use at home as part of your relationship.

Classes take place in my own home in the west of York.  This provides a warm, friendly environment to come to.  It also means classes are small – maximum 4 – 5 babies & mums/dads per group.

You’ll be given oil to take away and practice with, a booklet showing the strokes we’ve learned, and a certificate. 

Group sessions are suitable for babies from 4 weeks to pre-crawling.  There is no right or wrong time to come but you can read more in our article “What is the best age for baby massage classes?”

Learn with your friends:

If you already have a small group of friends with babies that you would like to learn with then we can arrange a group time just for you!  Classes can be held in my home or yours.  Perfect for NCT groups!

Please contact us to discuss availability and price.

1 to 1 sessions:

Some parents prefer to learn baby massage on a 1 to 1 basis, because it suits them and their baby better, or they would like their partner or other family member to learn alongside them.

Sessions are arranged at a time to suit you, and can be held in your own home* or mine.

The cost is £30 per session, or £75 for a 3 week course.

*extra costs may apply depending on travelling distance
