BABY MASSAGE

5 week course

This course was created and written by Vimala McClure, founder of the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). Using her experiences working in the orphanages in India, where babies and children were massaged daily, Vimala has created a lovely, evidence based routine combining massage, reflexology and yoga.

Over the 5 weeks, we gradually introduce new strokes on different body parts. The classes are relaxed and baby led as you learn the different benefits of baby massage:
