New parents in Wandsworth can now take part in a Baby Massage course at the Wandsworth Nursery and Pre-School Academy to learn the different techniques involved in communicating with their baby through massage.
Staff at the Smugglers Way-based nursery, which is part of the Busy Bees Childcare group, are inviting parents of babies aged over five weeks to take part in the course, which starts on Thursday 20th March at 10.30am, for four weeks.
The hour-long sessions will provide parents with all the recommended techniques for stimulating their baby’s physical, emotional and social development, incorporating reflexology and yoga routines. Other benefits of the class include relief from colic, teething and other common childhood ailments and guidance on creating a lasting bond between parent and baby in a relaxing environment.
The sessions are also a great opportunity for new parents in the area to meet with each other, while learning a new skill to benefit the development of their newborns.
Evelyn Hererra, Nursery Manager at the Wandsworth Nursery and Pre-School Academy, said:
“The baby massage sessions are a great opportunity for new parents to learn techniques to communicate with their baby in a relaxing environment. The sessions will be run by local specialist, Rowan Perkin, and will cover everything from creating a lasting bond and how to do a full body massage.”
Speaking about the benefits of baby massage, specialist Rown Perkin said: “Baby massage is a beautiful and loving way to communicate with your baby. It has fantastic health benefits for you and your baby – and it is great fun too! During the course, you will develop a unique skill that you can use with your baby through to early childhood. Our courses are suitable for babies over five weeks old.”
The course costs £65 per parent and includes refreshments, oil and a full instructions sheet. To book a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0203 189 1663.
