Baby Massage with Maria Sakaria
Join us for a 75-minute Baby Massage workshop with your little one! Studies have shown that infant massage strengthens the immune system, stimulates digestion, improves quality of sleep by soothing the nervous system, reduces muscle tension, relieves gas and colic, and so much more. Most importantly, the loving touch provided through infant massage strengthens the physical and emotional connection between you and your baby. Making baby massage a part of your routine with your little one has proven to enhance bonding and relationships through close physical and emotional connection! Studies show that the more tactile stimulation a baby receives in his or her first months of life up through the first year can positively impact their brain development.
The baby massage class is meant for you and your baby, 6 weeks to 8 months, and is also open to grandparents and caretakers. You can sign up online or show up and register the day of the workshop, walk ins are welcomed!
