Parents & carers who attend the IAIM baby massage course learn so much more than just a massage routine. The IAIM comprehensive course covers touch, movement, relaxation, interaction and communication and its fun!
The course for newborns to crawlers takes place throughout the year at my Corstorphine home or at your home e.g. NCT groups, ante-natal classes, twins. The weekly sessions are always baby led and take 60-90 minutes, which includes massage, chat about postnatal topics, hand-outs and refreshments.
You will learn a full body massage routine for your baby, including a specific massage for the tummy to help with colic and yoga moves.
