Therapeutic Massage

Why massage?

In many circumstances, massage is one of our favorite treatments for complex trauma in early childhood, sensory integration issues and difficulties with attachment. Additionally, massage therapy is an excellent way to relax and provide self care. Our massage therapist offers a range of services that you can choose from.

PARENT TRAINING FOR INFANT MASSAGE

Infant massage is a wonderful way for you to provide your baby loving, gentle and nurturing touch. Positive touch is essential for growing children. It aids in bonding, brain development, tummy issues, better sleep, increases feelings of calm and overall well-being and a whole lot more. It can be done all at once in about 20 minutes if baby allows or done in segments throughout the day.

Who should attend

  • Babies – newborn to 2 years old
  • Parents
  • Parents-to-be
  • Primary Caregivers

What is taught

Infant massage strokes and baby’s cues are taught to parents and caregivers so you can learn to massage your baby. That means only you touch your baby!

The class is lead by an instructor with her doll while you get to practice with your baby. If your baby does not want a massage during class, don’t worry, extra dolls are available for you to practice on. We never want to force any baby to receive a massage if they are not ready.
