Touch is a basic human need and is fundamental to our overall development. Positive, loving touch – like that used in baby massage, has been proven to have significant physical, emotional, mental and social benefits to babies who are regularly massaged by their parents/caregivers.
Our baby massage classes have been developed to teach you how massage your baby safely and to give you techniques to help soothe, relax and understand your baby, now and as they grow.
All of our classes are baby-led, which means that baby has the right to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the massage each week, with no pressure placed on parent or baby. Our small classes are held in relaxed and comfortable venues, giving you an opportunity to relax with your baby as well as meet other parents and babies in your local area.
Dads welcome - Baby massage isn’t just for mums, it also has a positive effect on the father-baby bond!
When you join one of our courses, you will receive:
We advise that babies are over 8 weeks old when they start a course and can join us anytime before they begin to crawl.

There are many benefits of baby massage for parent and baby, some include:
“A fantastic baby massage course, soothing for both mum and baby! We also found that it helped with tummy trouble and still use the techniques we learnt with Lesley. Lesley is a brilliant teacher and the class was very relaxing and affirming - just what I needed as a first time mum!”
