Infant Massage enhances your infant’s development, deepens the loving communication between you and your child, and provides an opportunity for you and your baby to develop a relationship built on love and respect that will last a lifetime!
The private sessions or mini workshop are a compilation of all that Alison has learned and experienced world-wide about specialist massage, and allows her to focus her passion on ensuring that each participant learns the wonderful skill of massage properly. Private sessions or Mini workshops offers mums / caregivers a supportive space to share experiences and gain knowledge from each other while learning a fun practical skill.
Topics are discussed according to the specific needs of each class or mum and can include (but are not limited to):
- the positive impact of massage,
- bonding and attachment,
- sleeping tips,
- breastfeeding advice,
During my years of performing different types of infant massage treatments and hosting several workshops for mums and babes.
I have learnt that babes really need massage.
Being born is quite a journey, and being professionally massaged to process that journey and your mum learning to massage you at the same time, is a great skill for your mum to learn.
I offer Private 1 hour session, including a take home manual, so you can empower yourself further to assist your baby and yourself. My private or workshop sessions are aimed at babes who are not yet crawling yet, so I take on any age baby from birth to crawling.
This treatment is highly beneficial for all babes, but even specifically more so to Caesarean born babes, having missed out on pressure massage which occurs as the baby goes through the birthing canal, they have missed out on vital neurological stimulation of specific trigger points in their bodies which are triggered-stimulated during the contraction process and moving down the birth canal. Receiving one of my many specific massages can stimulate some of these triggers.
A single session is, however, just the tip of the iceberg- you need to work your way through the manual Applying daily massage and make massage part of your daily routine with your baby and your family, the health benefits are truly amazing.
