Sunday infant massage--special bonding time at a special rate!

30.00 300.00

I am in the process of getting certified to teach infant massage through Infant Massage USA.  Infant massage is great for reducing stress, improving family interactions, improved sleep, enhanced motor development, help for depression, and more (Read here for more information on the benefits of infant massage.) 

For a limited time and for a small group of families during my certification process, I will be offering a 5-week Sunday afternoon series for only $30 per family for the whole series (only $5 per family per class).  The class will be offered from 3-5 PM at ConnectEd in San Jose for 5 more Sundays, from February 18 to March 18.  (The class will probably not be more than an hour, but I'm leaving extra time for being social afterwards.)

What to expect: I will be demonstrating massage techniques on a doll, while you practice them on your baby.  Partners can take turns massaging the baby or a doll, and siblings can also practice on a doll if they want to come and participate.  (I have a few extra dolls that I can bring, but let me know if you think you might need one.) 

What to bring: I will bring some basic supplies, but you may want to bring blankets and pillows to keep you and your baby comfortable on the floor.  I will bring a sound machine, but you are welcome to bring any soothing lullabies that you and your baby enjoy.  

Massage oil: I suggest that we use a scent-free, food-grade lotion so that your baby can enjoy the smell of YOU.  We generally use a food-grade oil such as grapeseed oil because babies put their hands in their mouths.  We generally use cold pressed grapeseed oil because it is food grade and has the least amount of smell to interfere with the smell of the parent.  A small bottle of grapeseed oil will be provided during the first class.  If you want to use a different food-grade oil without other added scents, feel free to bring them with you to the class.

 

Summary:

The class will be offered from 3-5 PM at ConnectEd in San Jose for 5 more Sundays, from February 18 to March 18.
