Discover baby massage with baby llama!
Baby llama offers friendly, fun and informative baby massage classes. Accredited by The Royal College of Midwives, the hands on babies course has been developed as a comprehensive five step programme, designed to introduce both you and your baby to the basic principles of baby massage, in a clear, consistent easy to follow fashion. The sessions are run on a weekly basis to allow you time to practice the techniques in your own time. Comprehensive step-by-step notes will be given out in every class, ensuring both you and baby get the most from it.
There is plenty of time to share ideas and make friends at the weekly sessions. Small, friendly group classes take place in warm & comfortable rooms, with other like minded mums across Trafford, Urmston, Davyhulme & Flixton. As well as learning the techniques and strokes of baby massage, you’ll discover a unique bonding experience with your little one, but most importantly we’ll have some fun along the way! Classes always finish with a nice hot cup of tea and a piece of homemade cake (at baby llama we don’t need much of an excuse to enjoy a good natter and munch on something yummy!)
Baby llama understands that babies don’t always operate on the same timetable as we do, so whether they need feeding, changing, or if they’re feeling unsettled, their needs always come first. We encourage you to feel relaxed and free to attend to your baby’s needs during class. Baby massage is suitable from being newborn, right up until baby starts to crawl.
“Human beings cannot survive without touch; it is a basic behavioural need. Without touch, the human infant will surely die. With healthy touch, the human infant not only survives, but thrives” Dr Ashley Montagu
Widely endorsed by medical practitioners across the world, baby massage can help to:
