Infant Massage (for babies and toddlers 3-weeks and older)
Infant Massage is an incredible tool taught to parents and caregivers that can help your baby with everything from gas, indigestion, and colic, to bonding, crying, and even falling asleep faster and sleeping longer. Touch is the very first sense to appear in utero, and is the sense which is most developed at birth. As your baby’s first form of communication, healthy, nurturing touch through Infant Massage meets his/her need for physical contact, affection, security, stimulation, and movement. Plus, classes are fun and a great way to connect with other parents and children in the community! Pregnant couples are welcome to join as well so you can hit the ground running with the material when your baby is three-weeks old.
Instructor(s): Jillian Van Ness
