Group & Private Infant Massage Classes for Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles County

Infant Massage Classes

The power of touch with your infant is real...

When an intimate caretaker looks into their baby’s eyes, pupils dilate, respirations increase and the caretaker wants to touch their baby and be physically close. This is a documented physiological and emotional response and is true for babies too. Pupils dilate, respirations increase and your baby wants physical closeness, creating an intimate exchange. These exchanges are also experienced in adulthood when falling in love. In essence, the way we touch our babies now sets the template for our baby’s own intimate relationships in adulthood, potentially reaching into their parental behaviors. As parents, we have the power to model and teach how intimacy works from the beginning.

Private Infant Massage Class in Your Home

Individual in-home sessions are perfect for MamaBabies who don’t have a traditional schedule, as well as those who choose to include family and caretakers from the onset of instruction. They are also a great alternative to group classes for those whose babies have serious disabilities, those who have anxiety leaving home, and those with crawling babies and/or other children with them at home.

These private sessions will address the benefits of infant massage, and offer the opportunity to practice strokes with an experienced guide. We will also address how to soothe and prevent meltdowns before they occur, colic, baby’s communication cues, physical development, and sleep. Mobile babies, toddlers, and preschoolers have different developmental needs and will be honored and incorporated into our sessions. Family members and caretakers can be included in the massage practice, provided that the mom’s needs and baby’s needs are met first and foremost.

INVESTMENT:  Begins at $235 depending on location.
