About this series

Infant massage has many benefits for baby, such as bonding; it builds

secure attachment, early verbal and non-verbal communication in addition

to nurturing touch and activation of all the senses. It helps with the

stimulation of most bodily systems, including immune, circulatory and

nervous system. Infant massage can help with relief of gas and

constipation; it improves sleep, can reduce teething pain as well as muscle

tension and tone, plus increase flexibility and abilities to self-regulate.

Laura's classes are cue-based and baby-driven. Parents are encouraged to

respond to the individual needs of their babies. The classes are warm and

relaxing, allowing individual baby’s needs to be considered and structured

once-a-week format allows the time and space to learn from each others’

knowledge and experiences.

The mission of this course is to not only to teach infant massage, but also to

empower parents and promote nurturing through parent-baby

communication promote nurturing touch and communication.

This class is suggested for babies 6 weeks - 9 months. All parents are

welcome and more than one parent is great! Classes will be about an hour

long and each week we will add on strokes for another part of the body. If

baby is sleeping or fussy, please still come – you can still learn to strokes

and practice them later at home and everyone will go home with print outs
