There is time for review of all techniques, as well as questions and discussion.
A selection of infant massage products and resources is available for sale at each class, including manuals, DVDs and recommended oils.
Introductory Group Session – single 1-hour class only.
You will learn a basic stroke routine, plus how to recognise your baby’s signals in regards to when they do and don’t want massage, and about appropriate oils to use. (If you then decide you would like further tuition to cover more strokes and more of the information above, another 1-3 classes can be arranged.)
In-Services For Health & Child Care Sectors – As a Paediatric Massage Consultant, Vicki has extra qualifications beyond those of a Certified Infant Massage Instructor. These enable her to provide in-services on personalised topics for any health or child care service, clinic, or organisation. Please contact Vicki for details or to discuss your requirements.
Massage for Kids Workshops – Vicki provides one-hour (or longer) workshops to teach parents / carers how to do massage with their children, aged 1-12 years. These can be group or private (including in-home) sessions. Whether or not you have learnt infant massage, you will discover that massage with older children needs to be tailored to their age and developmental stage. It also needs to be fun! As children grow, touch remains a vital element in our relationships. Massage and touch can help your connection, reduce stress (for both child and parent!) and improve communication (kids talk when they’re massaged!). It also educates kids about body awareness and safe touch, and helps with behaviour, emotional regulation and relaxation.
