My name is Geraldine, I have been a massage therapist for over 10 years now. I specialize in Swedish, Bamboo, Lomi Lomi, Indian head massage, chair acupressure, pregnancy massage ,a baby massage instructor and I teach couples massage skills as well. I aim to promote the benefits of Massage from pre birth right through to adult hood.
There are many proven benefits to massaging your baby regularly. Massage has been known to improve weight gain and circulation, aid digestion and ease teething pain, whilst also relieving trapped wind. It can help with sleep, which is often a major selling point for new mums! Most importantly, baby massage strengthens the bond between you and your new baby.
My course aims to teach mums, dads and even grandparents, the art of baby massage. Over 6 weeks, you will develop an understanding of the key techniques involved in massaging your baby. We will be working on the back, arms, legs, tummy and head, working up to a total baby body massage. Each week you will be given a handout with what we have been working on in class. Although there will be greater benefits in attending all 6 classes, I understand that life as a parent can be incredibly busy, so as well as a 6-week payment option, there will also be a weekly payment option, for those who are unable to attend the full course.
I am in the process of putting together 6-week courses to be held over spring, summer and autumn months. Further details will be posted as and when they are confirmed.
