Baby Massage

Age group0-2 years

The Baby Massage Workshop aims to promote and to create a massage culture and habit for parents and all people interested in learning about children’s responses to bodywork.

Different from the well-known Shantala, a massage technique for infants originated in India that demands the use of oil, the technique taught in this workshop follows the Thai massage concept and approach for babies, where there is no necessity to use oil to deliver the massage.

This technique is an oil free massage, it allows the massage to be applied in any situation or time of the day. You are able to create a daily routine, promoting an even greater bond between child and parents.

Infant massage is an excellent chain of love to unite the relationship between parent and infant. In addition, it promotes the feeling of happiness and it encourages self-confidence, which helps the infant to interact and to get used to social environments.

Who is it for?

This workshop is designed for parents, massage therapists, physiotherapists, doulas, midwives and anyone else interested in knowing and connecting with bodywork in babies.

Can I bring baby along?

Yes! This workshop is designed to be a shared learning experience for you and your baby. The room is set up to be baby-friendly with your own space to practice.

What will I take home?

The workshop is taught over 6 x 45 minute classes where you will learn theory as well as techniques to use at home. You will also receive a booklet outlining the topics covered in the workshop as well as a Nurture Hub goodie-bag.
