Infant massage is ideal for infants who are not yet mobile, typically newborn up to 6 months. At 6 months, most infants begin to want to explore their environment and would prefer to move around instead of lay still for a massage. If your baby is older than 6 months but is not yet demonstrating mobility, please join us!
Infant massage is well suited for babies demonstrating both typical and atypical development. If your baby has special needs or was born prematurely, our Special Souls Infant Massage class provides additional techniques and a smaller class size to ensure that the massage is rewarding and a true bonding time for you and your baby.

Although some pillows and blankets will be provided, please bring a floor pillow and blanket that you or your baby find comforting for use during class. Your partner is welcome to join our class as well. Class cost includes materials fee.
