Family massage workshop - baby + toddler


Family massage workshop - baby + toddler


Ideal experience for a newborn baby, a toddler sibling and his/her parents.

You could book one or more sessions in the comfort of your home at a convenient time arranged by the instructor and you. Each session lasts about 60 minutes. Price is per session so at checkout make sure you specify the quantity of sessions you prefer. Weekdays and weekends available.

Catchment area in southeast London: SE3, SE6, SE7, SE9, SE10, SE12, SE18 or East Sussex in Crowborough (TN6) and surrounding areas.

The session will be child led and the idea will be to share the benefits of nurturing touch with the whole family and practically experience this by learning story massage strokes for the toddler (the massage movements are on the toddler’s back, can be with clothes and the parents are the ones massaging the child, the instructor demonstrates using a demo doll), and the session also includes a section for the newborn child, the colic routine and some massage and soothing techniques for the very young ones.

Usually we start with the story massage section for the toddler, then we move on to the newborn and in that section the toddler can take part massaging a dolly or a cuddly toy imitating what is happening with the baby. That way the toddler feels special as he'/she is getting lots of attention and being massaged first, and then he/she can also see what is like to be gentle with baby. Then they start learning how it feels to be treated nicely and how treating nicely looks like with others.

The ideal place in a home to do it is a living room or somewhere where we could sit on the floor, but the main thing is to choose a place where parents and children feel comfortable.

Songs, rhymes and music are part of the experience.

Coconut oil and laminated handouts are included. Oil is not recommended to use before 6 weeks of age but some coconut oil will be given and an explanation of the usage will be shared.
