Bring your pre-crawler and join Jillian on Thursday December 19th @ 5:30pm-7:00pm for a hands on "Intro to Baby Massage" class. We will cover the benefits and foundations of baby massage including: appropriate pressure, recommended oils, how to read baby's engagement cues, as well as massage strokes for one area of the body. A short, PDF/handout of the learned principles will be provided for home practice. Please note: you are the absolute best person to give massage to your baby and will massage your own baby during class. 

Some of the benefits of massage for baby include supporting:

  • digestion and elimination (relieving gas, colic, constipation, reflux, etc)

  • sleep

  • healthy weight gain

  • neurological development

  • relationship forming/bonding

  • growth (relieving teething pains, growing pains, etc)

  • and more!


In addition to being a Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist (CPMT), Certified Infant Massage Teacher (CIMT), and mother, Jillian also studied Music Therapy and worked as a Ropes Course Facilitator for many years; weaving music and playfulness, into all her classes and sessions. She loves working with little ones and their families, and can’t wait to see your smiling faces in class soon.
