Infant Massage

Infant Massage Instruction

Facilitated by Susie Gray, Certified Infant Massage Instructor

My Infant Massage Instruction class is designed to teach parents how to massage their babies. The beauty of infant massage is the ‘hands-on’ communication that parents share with their little ones. Parents learn simple strokes gathered from Swedish and Indian massage techniques that help tone baby’s digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems.

Infant massage enhances this precious time of attachment and bonding between parent and infant that is the foundation from which all future relationships are based upon. Contemporary research has proven that gentle touch can be as important as food for your baby’s physical and emotional development.

Benefit from Infant Massage instruction:

  • Discover self-relaxation techniques as a parent.
  • Explore all elements of bonding – eye contact, voice, smell, skin to skin contact.
  • Massage aids in relief of discomfort from colic, constipation, and congestion.
  • Help your baby sleep better.
  • Builds trust and create body awareness for your baby and yourself!
  • Learn to interpret and respond to baby’s cues while building confidence in caring for your little one.

Express the love you feel for your baby through infant massage. Parents and infants age 3 weeks to 6 months are welcome. Class size is limited, so sign up today! All classes will take place at Gather in Evanston.
