baby-massageTo attend Baby Massage, babies should be at least 6-8 weeks old, have had their 6-8 week check and have no medical conditions where it would be inadvisable to massage such as infection, high temperature or a recent fracture. Babies can attend Baby Massage classes up to pre-toddling stage – however it is advisable to do it before they get too mobile at around 6 months. Please also make sure that 72 hours has passed after any immunisations.

If your baby is 6 months – 18 months and you would like to learn about baby/infant massage, please do get in touch to discuss one-to-one sessions that are adapted to your needs.
