Helping parents overcome the most common problems faced in the early years by teaching correct baby massage techniques.
There are many common challenges that parents can face with their baby in the early years, including sleep and settling, colic, reflux, teething and more. Baby massage can help to overcome these challenges.
At Baby Massage Perth we offer a safe, nonjudgemental and welcoming environment, providing natural health support, to teach parents of newborns and infants correct massage techniques.
WHO ARE WE?
The ancient art of baby massage is slowly becoming in-vogue to the modern parent and becoming a part of daily life for families.
At Baby Massage Perth we provide a host of massage techniques taught the correct way to gain the life skill of massage which can be continued at home, well into schooling years.
It is important to note that there are significant differences between massage for adults and massage for infants.
It is vital to understand the correct strokes, ideal timing and length of massage to avoid over-stimulation. Being taught the correct techniques is essential; like any other form of therapy, it is important to know specific techniques to enhance the experience.
Techniques taught range from Indian, Swedish, Reflexology to Baby Yoga. All having great benefits to babies and infants.
These techniques are so much more than simple stroking; baby massage involves interpreting and responding to an infant’s body language, enabling infants to successfully communicate their need for, or their rejection, of touch.
Baby Massage Perth Classes are taught by a fully accredited Infant Massage Instructor and IMIS Paediatric Massage Consultant (Infant Massage Information Services).
Baby Massage techniques are demonstrated on a doll, parents then observe the demonstrated techniques being taught, and practice on their own child.
WHO ARE CLASSES FOR?
Baby Massage Perth Classes are suitable for expecting couples who can join our classes and practice on a provide doll ready for when their baby arrives.
The age range for classes is newborns through to 12 months, though techniques taught can be continued at home well into schooling years.
Every attendee of Baby Massage Perth is invited into Baby Massage Perth’s private online Facebook Group, where they are provided with invaluable information such as tips, parenting advice, seminar, events, discounts, latest news, meet new friends and provide support to one another, creating a Baby Massage Community and continued Baby Massage Perth journey.
Infant massage empowers parents and caregivers through confidence and peace of mind – knowing that they themselves can do something that is a great benefit for their child.
In my experience, parents who learn massage techniques are generally more confident in handling their baby, are more receptive to their child’s wants and needs and tend to be more content within themselves. This is purely from knowing that they have something to offer their child, at a time when they can often feel quite helpless.
