Cubs Baby Massage
As well as being a lovely, calm time for bonding with your baby, Massage can provide you with useful tools to add to your parenting tool kit. Baby Massage can calm, soothe, aid sleep, relieve common tummy issues and much more.
Baby Massage is an extension of a parent's natural instinct to care for their baby. Touch is a baby's first language and regular positive touch strengthens the bonds between care givers and babies. Parents can communicate better with their babies and become more confident in responding to their needs. Baby Massage also has some practical benefits such as gently aiding digestion, soothing colic, enhancing baby's body awareness, increasing circulation, boosting their immune system an much more....
The Cubs Baby Massage Course gradually builds over six weeks to a full body massage that you can use to soothe and bond with your baby at any time.
Mums & Dads are welcome to attend, although with current restrictions we have to limit it to one parent per baby. We also periodically run Daddy & Me massage classes just for Dads.
The course is divided into 50 minute classes and usually runs over 6 weeks.
Although it is perfectly safe and beneficial to massage your baby from birth, we recommend you wait until about 6 weeks to attend a class as many babies may only tolerate a small amout of massage before this age. So to get the most from the course we recommend an age from 6 weeks to 5 months at the beginning of the course.
Here's what some of our Mums had to say:
'Really enjoyed a six week massage course with Karen. It was held over Zoom due to the pandemic but it felt great to be part of a class with other mums and learning a new skill. My daughter loved the massage and we now keep repeating it after bath time. A great mix of music and massage - would definitely recommend!'
- Rose (First Time Mum)
'Loved our baby massage course. Karen was very fun, friendly and knowledgable. The sessions were relaxed and informative. We enjoyed it so much we are booked on to do the course again!'
- Leanne (First Time Mum)
