All about Baby Massage in Berkshire

Many cultures have carried out infant massage for hundreds of years using the principle of loving, nurturing and touch. Through touch a baby may learn the comfort and security of loving and being loved.

It is a time to relax and bond with your baby, promoting verbal and non-verbal communication.

Baby massage may be beneficial in:

  • Helping to alleviate colic, constipation and wind
  • Stimulating circulation, respiration, digestion and nervous system and boosting the immune system
  • Promoting relaxation of mother, father and baby
  • Empowering and raising confidence in mother, father and baby
  • Promoting better sleep in baby
  • And is good fun to do!

Techniques are demonstrated on a doll by a qualified midwife therapist, whilst parents massage their own babies under instruction (by a certified Baby Massage Instructor). As always the sessions are baby led. After each session handouts will be given out as a reminder of what techniques have been used in the class. It is up to the parents to practice at home.

Baby massage can also be instructed and carried out in the comfort of your own home.
