Therapies - Infant Massage Classes

Research studies have shown that infants need touch in order to thrive. With infant massage, you not only give your child this nurturing gift, but you provide them with several other benefits as well... Infant massage:
 
-improves hand / eye coordination
-releases endorphins to reduce pain
-helps to develop body sense / awareness
-speed mylination process of nerves
-is a great bonding tool, especially for dads
-is especially helpful for special needs children
 
In this class, parents learn the basics of this very special form of massage. The class lasts approximately 2 ½ hours. Since a parent needs to give 100% of his or her attention to the child during the massage, the infants are not brought to the class. Instead, during the class parents learn the massage techniques by performing them on dolls. Participants will receive a small handbook containing the benefits and precautions of infant massage, as well as a basic massage routine. The cost of this class is $90.00. Both parents may attend at no additional charge. This makes a wonderful gift for expectant parents.
