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 bond between you and your baby.
You will be guided carefully through each stroke until you are confident in communicating your love through touch. During the process, you will learn to relax your own body and create a serene and nurturing environment in which your baby will thrive.
Please note we are up a one floor walk-up. We are happy to assist you up the stairs with your stroller. Stroller parking is LIMITED and you may be required to fold your stroller.
