what to expect


  • Baby massage classes in various locations across Cheshire and Manchester – or in the comfort of your own home if you decide a one-to-one session would work best.
  • The program runs for five sessions, each lasting for an hour.
  • Rhymes and songs are incorporated into the sessions, to enhance the bonding experience and encourage smiles & fun!
  • There is no minimum age for baby, so you can bring them to class from being newborn right up until pre-crawling. You may however decide it is best to attend when your baby is used to the home environment and settled in, around 4-6 weeks old.
  • Wear comfortable clothing because we tend to work on the floor (although we’ll make it as comfy as possible!)
  • Each class member receives information on how to massage their little one and a bottle of baby llama organic cold pressed sunflower oil – perfect for newborn skin.
  • We provide mats, but please bring a towel with you, so baby will feel comforted by the smell of home
  • Classes always finish with a cuppa and some homemade cake!
  • When you and baby have graduated on the course, you’ll get a certificate as a lovely keepsake.

Each week we’ll have a refresher on the previous weeks, finishing with a full body work through on week 5.

Baby massage is a wonderful way to nurture deep love and trust between you and your baby. Singing and playing are also vital elements of your special time together, as your baby grows and flourishes.

Touch is known to be one of the most important gifts you can give your baby. Whilst it is possible to learn the principles of baby massage from a book, there really is no substitute for learning from a qualified instructor. Come along and learn to massage your baby and enjoy a well deserved relaxing, fun time with other like minded mums.
