Hydration, Relaxation, and Baby Massage

Happy New Year!

  • A reminder to stay hydrated this summer - try a slice of lemon, lime, or a sprig of mint in your water. Quench your thirst with watermelon (great frozen for teething too.)
  • To maintain calmness post holidays try deep breathing through your left nostril - close of right nostril with your thumb, deeply inhale through left, exhale slowly through left nostril. A great relaxer!


Next Relax Baby Massage course starts Thu 6 January at 10.30am
A wonderful, fun, hands on class that teaches parents and caregivers safe and beneficial massage techniques to soothe, stimulate growth/learning potential, and most importantly, bond with your baby!


In this class parents will have a forum to exchange ideas, and discuss concerns, pertaining to life with a new baby.  Babies will enjoy the benefits of loving touch in a social and safe environment.

Infant Massage Class runs for 5 weeks, meeting once per week, for approximately 60 minutes. Every class will include massage technique demonstration, class discussion and social time for baby.
The class can be adapted for older children too.
Benefits for Babies:
  • Relaxes and helps decrease stress.
  • Relieves discomfort from constipation, gas and colic.
  • Helps normalize muscle tone and improve blood circulation.
  • Helps baby sleep better (therefore parents sleep better too).
  • Stimulates brain development and improves sensory awareness.
  • Promotes bonding and attachment.
The Relax Baby Massage Course is based on the research by Vimla McClure (International Association of Infant Massage
