Infant Massage Class
For parents & caregivers
By Shalon Da~Nai, LMT
Massaging your baby can be of great benefit to their health and development. Many new babies are
coming home with digestive sensitivities causing gas or acid reflux. Some are prescribed Prilosec and
take it daily through their infancy and into the toddler years. Massage is a tool that empowers parents
to help their child through these painful issues. Performing infant massage on a daily basis will help to
alleviate these symptoms without the side affects involved with meds.
Benefits of Infant Massage
~assists development of the nervous system
~secures a stronger bond between parent and child
Not only does massage sooth and comfort your child, it creates an intimate space to really connect and
bond with them. You will become more aware of the subtle cues your baby uses to communicate, such
as sounds, facial expressions and body language. This makes you able to identify their needs easier
and reduces frustration for both of you.
Infant massage is wonderful for fathers to learn as well. A Mother already has the bond of carrying the
baby and the further bonding of breastfeeding. Regular touch allows fathers the time to form those
physical bonds and a deeper connection to their child.
Healing Hands offers small, intimate classes in a comfortable setting. This is a 2 hour, hands on class
for expecting parents or parents with infants 3 weeks to crawling. Other caregivers are also welcome.
For Class you will need to bring…
~Your baby, or a doll
