Baby Massage has so many benefits! It’s a wonderful thing to learn, and a great activity for you to do with your baby.
We want to make learning baby massage easy for parents, so we offer a number of different ways you can join in:
Group courses: still our most popular way to learn baby massage! 5 weekly sessions teach you how to massage your baby from top to toe, building up gradually and giving you lots of chance to practice. You learn in a small group (max 4-5 parents and babies) in a cosy home environment. The course costs £40 which includes a bottle of grapeseed oil to keep along with a handy booklet showing all the strokes we learn. Group courses run on Thursday mornings at 10am, with an extra course running at 11.30am subject to demand. Our first course of the year starts on Thursday 16 January.
Pay as you go sessions: in response to our course “graduates” who wanted to carry on coming to classes, for parents who have learnt baby massage before and want a refresher, and those who find it difficult to commit to a 5 week block. We work through a full body massage each week, with a variety of strokes and focusing on different parts of the body. Sessions are held in the Community Room at Tesco Askham Bar, so are easy to find and access. Numbers vary from week to week! £5 per session. Bottles of oil are available to buy, or you are welcome to bring your own oil/lotion from home (no nut oils please).
Private group course: learn baby massage with your friends! Popular with NCT groups and anyone who has found a new group of mummy friends. The 5 week runs as above but just for you, in your own homes. Discounts available depending on the size of your group.
Private 1:1 sessions: Sometimes coming to a group session isn’t right for you and your little one, for a variety of reasons. If this is the case then we can offer a private session in your home, just for you. £30 per session or £75 for a 3 week course.
Whichever option you choose, our classes our baby-led (change, feed and cuddle as you need!), relaxed, friendly and fun. We want you to enjoy spending this special time with your little one at the same time as learning some great techniques for soothing your baby and strengthening your bond with them.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have or to book a place on one of our courses.
