Infant
Massage

“Of all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you.”
—Andrew McMahon

Touch is the first sense to develop and remains essential to baby's physical and emotional development. Infant massage classes are a fun, unique way for parents and caregivers to bond with their babies and create meaningful at-home routines.

Infant Massage is not meant to be therapeutic, or a cure for health ailments. However, as a bonus, there are many possible benefits and positive "side-effects" for baby and caregivers you can see below and learn about in class:

Highly recommend Sarah’s infant massage series. This is our second round of classes with her (we previously took her prenatal classes) and as always it was worth every penny! Not only did it give us a bonding activity, but it also was incredibly helpful with my little guys digestive issues (gassy baby). It was both informative and quite easy to follow along! Would take another class from Sarah in a heartbeat!

I highly recommend Sarah’s infant massage class. I learned so many great techniques to not only relax my three month old but to also help with her colic. If your baby needs to sleep or feed during class you can always watch the demonstrations and practice afterwards. Infant massage is an amazing way to bond with your baby and I will continue to practice what I learned in the classes with my daughter as she gets older. It’s also a great way to meet other moms!
