Parents and caregivers can learn how to give their babies massages. Babies should be between the ages of 0-9 months to participate in this class.
Parents and other caregivers (such as grandparents) can create a deeper bond and sense of comfort between themselves and baby by using infant massage. There are many other benefits for both the infant and parent/caregiver when it comes to massage! Infants
could experience improved body awareness, improved digestion, increased weight gain for underweight infants and a reduction in discomfort due to teething, gas etc. Parents begin to have a higher sense of how to react to infant cues, while building confidence in their parenting skills. Parents/caregivers may also notice a decrease in stress and blood pressure while spending quality time with their baby.
Classes are held one day a week for 2 weeks. Each class lasts 2 hours. For an current list of series offerings, please contact Lisa Schalk by phone at 414-329-5275 or email at Lisa.Schalk@greenfieldwi.us
