Why spend time learning Infant Massage with your little one? Massage is a form of self-regulation. This is a relaxing time for you and your infant will learn early self-regulation skills through body & brain stimuli, have better digestion, better sleep and a host of other positive benefits. It’s been studied that school-aged kiddos that received soothing infant massage, as well as other self-regulation techniques as they age, are more calm and less prone to anxiety and tension than their classmates who did not receive early supports

Every session has massage for baby and parent led discussions about infant care, infant mental health and caregiving.
