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.
