Everyone always talks about the importance of a mother’s touch for babies and children but research shows that bonding with dad is just as essential to a baby’s wellbeing. Not only does massage provide a wealth of benefits to baby but studies indicate that fathers who learn to soothe their babies have reduced stress levels.
In this 2-hour dads only baby massage workshop, you will be guided through the baby massage strokes and techniques to help soothe your baby, support normal development and assist with difficulties such as colic. As well as providing intimate bonding opportunities, the techniques taught will help you tune into your baby's moods and needs more closely.
A step by step guide to the routines used will be supplied following the workshop to support you whilst using baby massage at home.
As well as being a baby massage instructor, Sonya is a physiotherapist, medical herbalist and colic support advisor. There will be plenty of opportunities during the workshop to ask questions and discuss any concerns with Sonya & fellow dads.
The workshop runs from 11:30-13:30.
The Birds is a great location for mum to relax if she doesn't want to go too far and there are many local cafes too.
