An age old tradition..

Baby massage is an ancient tradition that originates in India. It is passed down from grandmother to mother and this beautiful tradition continues..The french physician Frederick Leboyer recounts his personal first hand experience through his book 'Loving hands'. His message conveys the true essence of baby massage..

Being touched and caressed, being massaged, is food for the infant. Food as necessary as mineral, vitamins and proteins'

Baby massage TODAY

How true Leboyer's message is and although we don't have this age old tradition in Ireland it's instinctual for a mother to hold, to touch, to caress her newborn and to sooth it with loving touch. Today research has proven just how touch is SO important in the early months for a baby's brain development. Through my baby massage classes we can deepen and help foster the loving bonds. Massage is like a form of communication for mother and baby, yes, baby may not be able to talk!,  but they can tell us so much from their body language whilst being massage! Smiles, laughter, intense eye contact, squirming, perhaps sensitive areas too..

Join us for some deeply bonding baby massage.
