Baby Massage

The practising of massaging babies is a technique passed down in many cultures and dates back over 3000 years. The word massage comes to us from the Arabic route mass’h which means to touch, knead or squeeze.  The international association of infant massage was first started by a lady called Vimala Mcclure. It is now recognised as the I.A.I.M and is present in no less than 25 countries in the world and is an ancient practice that bonds the baby and massager.

Baby massage course

Our courses are 4 weeks (1 session a week). They are suitable for age 6 weeks to pre crawling. Each session is 45 minutes long and contains discussions, recapping of massaging and the introduction of new strokes as well as sensory touch and singing elements. There will only be a maximum of 6 adults at the sessions so we will hopefully be able to address any issues or questions you may have about your baby. You will also receive a keepsake from the first and last session. You will only need to bring with you your own towel as we will provide your oil.

After the class you are welcome to stay at the play café free of charge where you can meet friends and purchase refreshments.


The sessions have to be taken as a 4 week block in order to maximise the benefits and paid for on booking. This block of sessions is £27.  This is to be paid via bank transfer.
