INFANT MASSAGE  

2 hours

Sunday- Sept. 13th @10: 00 am

Instructor  Rocio Chavez MTTI registered school #30

I have been a massage therapist for 4 years and am certified in CEIM-USA. This allows me to teach parents and anyone who feels they would benefit from learning.

Infant massage is for everyone. This course will go over where infant massage began and how it has developed throughout time and how it is used today. You will learn how to do a full-body routine for your baby which includes legs, feet, stomach, arms, hands, back, and face.

Why learn infant massage? One of the most common things in babies is discomfort from gas and colic, here you will learn how to relieve their discomfort. You will also learn how to better communicate with your baby and create a strong bond between parents and baby.
