Infant massage classes are a fun way to learn how to soothe your baby, relieve tummy upsets, and learn to understand your baby’s non-verbal language and much, much more. Our classes are informal, relaxed, and small enough to ensure you get the personal attention you need.
Infant massage is simple, easy to learn and effective! Join the parents that have experience the joy and benefits that infant massage has to offer! The easiest way to learn to massage your baby is with the help of a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI). The strokes and styles of massage are easier to grasp when demonstrated by our experienced instructor. Pressure, rate, rhythm, the length of the massage, respect, and bonding, why babies cry, babies’ body language, relaxation, and parent empowerment are some of the skills and topics you will learn.
The monthly courses are complimentary but require pre-registration. To learn about upcoming dates or to receive more information, call Brittny Erickson at 715-685-5332.
