Baby Massage Courses
Your baby has arrived! Baby Massage is a fantastic way to learn to communicate with your new baby. Touch is baby's first language and through massage you can start the bonding and attachment process that will be the beginning of building a loving and secure relationship. Baby Massage is a wonderful nurturing experience and is the best start you can give your baby as they arrive into their new world. It promotes feelings of happiness and trust and is a great way to help with a baby's development both physically and emotionally.
Baby Massage Courses are currently running online via Zoom. The course consists of 3 x 40 minute classes on Zoom. These can be arranged as a one-to-one course or for small groups of friends. The courses are also pre-recorded and sent to you afterwards, enabling you to continue practising the strokes and techniques. Please see below for more details.

Baby Explorers are excited to announce the arrival of baby reflexology courses in addition to our baby massage courses.
Reflexology techniques are specifically used to boost baby's immune system and to calm their nervous system, helping them to sleep more peacefully.
There are specific strokes to help treat reflux, colic, wind and constipation. Reflexology is also used in the treatment of sinus and teething pain as well as helping with restful sleep.
Reflexology is a standalone treatment but is hugely beneficial when combined with baby massage, giving your baby the very best start as well as deepening a loving and bonding relationship between you.
