Baby massage is a wonderful way to spend time with your baby and begin communication through positive touch.
Baby massage allows both parents to be closer to your baby and increase your confidence in your ability to handle your baby. Through these classes there are many benefits for your baby including develop body awareness, aids digestion, stimulates the immune system, calms the emotions and relieves trauma.
It can reduce crying, colic and constipation and can aid with relaxation techniques to aid a restful night’s sleep.
Next sessions are now available to book starting on 9th January 2018 at £7 per week
1 hour sessions every Tuesday 1.30pm-2.30pm
Reflexology works on the principle that our feet are a map of our body. By pressing certain reflex points on the
feet we can 'work' that part of the body. Baby Reflexology has very similar benefits to baby massage.

We all love stories and nursery rhymes and when combined with the benefits of simple massage strokes we can encourage our children's creativity and imagination. Touch is a form of communication and helps us develop relationships. The benefits of positive touch for children are backed by extensive research and include improved calmness and concentration, increased self-confidence and improved social skills.
Story Massage is suitable for children aged 2-4 years and uses simple touch strokes associated with words that help to build up a story. Story Massage can be shared as a child to child activity or a parent to child activity. The strokes are all done over clothes and concentrate on the shoulders, back, arms and head.
During our Story Massage sessions parents and children will be introduced to a range of stories and nursery rhymes with simple massage strokes that they will be able to practice on each other. We will also include simple visualization stories to encourage children to relax.
