Who can attend the sessions?
Parents, close caregivers, & expectant parents. Bring your baby along to the sessions to massage during the demonstration time at each class, or for expectant parents a baby doll is provided for use during massage time to help you to learn the stroke techniques correctly. It is up to you whether you attend a class prior to, or after the birth of your baby. Your instructor will cater to both situations. It simply depends on whether you would prefer to learn the techniques on your baby in class, or whether you prefer to have learnt the techniques prior to the birth so that you can begin to massage confidently while still in hospital.

Massage measurably decreases cortisol levels in both children and their parents allowing blood pressure, heart rate, digestive functioning and hormonal levels to return to their normal state.
