Baby Massage for Instructors

Parents, grandparents, adoptive parents and carers bonding with their baby is imperative to start their journey together – a bond which lasts a lifetime.  Therapeutic touch is one of the best ways to achieve this.  Teaching carers baby massage techniques to play, learn and develop with their baby is rewarding and enjoyable.  This course covers all you will need to know to set up and deliver your own baby massage classes.  You may choose to offer one2one sessions in the parent’s home, teach nursery assistants in day nurseries or in the community at weekly classes, taster sessions or day long events.  This is also an excellent spring board to introduce your other services to clients and gain repeat business.
