The BabyBrain Infant Massage
Baby massage is a tradition which has been practiced for centuries, not only increasing the bond between parents and children, butalso providing positive benefits for infant mental health. It is a wonderful gift to share with your baby that can connect you through non verbal communication.
We specialise in providing group or individual baby massage classes for you and your baby. The BabyBrain Infant Massage classes not only teach you the strokes of an infant massage routine, but also offer a way for you both to relax, communicate with confidence and learn to trust your own parenting instinct.
