Class Information

Classes involve teaching parents how to massage their babies, from birth to pre‑crawling (3-4 classes).

This is a hands-on class. Parents/Caregivers bring their infants to the classes. If both parents are attending class, they may also bring a doll to practice on. Instruction is given to the parent who in turn will complete the massage strokes on their infant. Classes are generally held on an individual family basis. Call to schedule.
