"It is through loving, caressing, tactile stimulation and communication that the infant learns that he/she is loved. We must speak to their skins. We must speak to their backs, which thirst and cry as much as their bellies".
From "Loving Hands: the Traditional Art of Baby Massage" by Frederick Leboyer

Baby massage has been a longstanding parenting tradition in many cultures, such as in India and Africa, and has been introduced to the western world during the last 30 years, gaining in popularity in the UK since the late 1990's.

Baby massage is when a parent or primary carer lovingly strokes or holds their baby. Using a high quality non-fragranced vegetable oil, soothing holds and rhythmic strokes are given on each area of baby's body, following a sequence which has been developed over many years. The massage offers a wonderful experience and a special time to communicate both verbally and non-verbally with babies, so that they feel loved, valued and respected.

IAIM Baby Massage Course

The IAIM baby massage course draws from both the Indian and Swedish massage traditions, as well as incorporating principles from yoga and reflexology.

Four of the main areas of benefit include:

  • Interaction and bonding (communication, undivided attention, respect, love, nurturing touch, empathy, etc.)
  • Relaxation (improved sleep patterns, increased flexibility, reduction of stress levels and stress hormones, etc.)
  • Relief (colic, constipation, tension, teething discomfort, etc.)
  • Stimulation (all vital systems: e.g. circulatory, digestive, immune, nervous, as well as language development, sensory integration, mind/body awareness. etc.)

The course gives plenty of time for massage, tea, homemade cake and discussion. At the end of each session you will receive detailed handouts covering the strokes, which you can practise at home and information on the topics discussed. Each week you will learn a new part of the body and revisit the previous strokes. This is very much a baby-led class, you are welcome to feed and change whenever you need to. Within a supportive and nurturing environment you can share your experiences with other mums and make new friends at the same time. Courses are non-refundable and non-transferable.

"Baby massage with Alice was a wonderful experience.  Samuel often seems to get tummy gripes which upset him but the massage really calmed him down.  Each week he became more and more receptive to it.  Alice is a great teacher, she explains things really well and is incredibly patient.  She made all of us new mums feel very at ease and comfortable.  We have continued to use the massage techniques at home.  I would really recommend the class as a way to bond and relax with your baby." Ella & baby Samuel
