Baby Massage

This  class will emphasises connection and presence between mum/dad/carer and baby, and use techniques to: relax the baby’s diaphragm for full and efficient breathing; bring flexibility to hips and shoulders; strengthen their back, arms and legs in preparation for sitting and standing. All of this happens in an atmosphere of loving, joyful play: above all it’s a time for mums, dads or carers to be fully present with and enjoy their baby!

Alexa provides a relaxed and supportive space for dedicated parent and baby time, learning a valuable skill for life to support you and your baby.

Prior to the first class please test your baby’s skin with the oil you will be using. This can be done on the inside of the upper arm and about 60 minutes observation time should be allowed. I recommend you use Organic Sunflower Seed Oil / Organic Grapeseed Oil / Organic Virgin Coconut Oil / Organic Light Olive Oil. Avoid commercial baby oils as these are usually highly perfumed. As mineral oil they are cheap derivatives of crude petroleum. They tend to feel greasy and gritty and have no organic value.
