How are the classes run?

 

Claire classes are run on a friendly and informal basis, giving parents and carers the opportunity to learn the principles of baby massage, in a relaxed and sociable environment where lasting relationships can often be made. Discussions will also be encouraged at the end of the session to talk about any challenges parents/carers may face such as crying, colic post-natal stress etc., this gives parents the opportunity to share their thoughts or anxieties and benefit from the experience of others.

 

The classes have been developed as a comprehensive 6 step programme designed to introduce parents/carers and their babies to the basic principles of baby massage in a clear consistent and easy to follow fashion. The sessions run on a weekly basis (unless holiday’s sickness or room availability  prevails).

 

the first  session you attend you will receive your  hand outs to take home and practice the moves that we have learnt that day plus your own complementary Organic Cold pressed Sunflower oil... Allowing the parents/carers to practice at home in between sessions.
