Baby Massage

Baby massage classes

Babies love massages. Learning how to massage your baby will create a beautiful interaction from which you and your baby will immensely benefit

I am a certified instructor in baby massage, trained by the IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage).

Group Classes 

I give group classes to small groups in Ixelles (4 to 5 babies).

Private Classes

I come to your place and give individual massage classes.

Here is a list of some of the benefits of baby massage

  • Infant parent attachment or "bonding"*
  • Relaxation
  • Makes baby feel loved
  • Promotes better sleep
  • Facilitates body awareness
  • Boosts immune system
  • Sensory stimulation
  • Improves skin condition
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Helps digestion
  • Balances respiration
  • Relief for teething pains
  • Helps waste elimination
  • Helps you learn about your baby (Their needs and desires)
  • Relaxes parents
  • Helps build parents' and baby's self-esteem
  • Pleasurable experience
  • Stimulates production of oxytocin (Oxytocin is a hormone which can be produced by both male and female persons during massage. It is useful as a pain reliever and has a calming effect on the person.)
