nurturing yoga for mums and babies with Amelie Cresswell

Nurturing baby massage

 

Baby massage is a wonderful way to bond and interact with your little one, as well as support his/her well-being, in these precious first few weeks and months after birth.

 

Massage has many physical, physiological and emotional benefits for babies:

  • promotes calm and relaxation, leading to better sleep

  • boosts immunity

  • helps relieve digestive problems (gas, constipation, etc)

  • improves muscle tone and flexibility

  • improves body awareness

  • provides feeling of being herd as parents read baby' cues

 

I offer 4 different courses and workshops, for groups and individuals, all delivered privately in the comfort of your own home.

 

Full body course  (3 sessions of 60mn)

On this comprehensive course, you will learn massage strokes for all body parts of your baby, as well as yoga-inspired gentle movements, a routine to help with colic symptoms and a routine to be used at bedtime.

Each session also includes gentle postnatal stretches for mums and a joint relaxation time.

Ideal for babies from 4-6 weeks, until 6 months old.

Cost: £135, or £45 per person for groups of 3 or more

 

Tummy trouble workshop (60mn)

This session focuses on massage strokes and gentle baby yoga moves for the tummy and legs, to help relieve colic symptoms, release trapped wind, and ease constipation. The one-off session will gives you the skills and confidence to soothe your baby at any time of day or night.
