Classes

Enrolment for baby massage courses is on going; please contact us to find out when the next available class begins, if not listed below. A course is 4 classes, held once a week, in a warm, caring home environment. We keep our numbers small so that you can feel confident and comfortable to mix with other new mums and be able to ask questions. Massage stokes are taught in stages over the 4 weeks so baby becomes used to touch and you can practice at home and ask questions when you return to class the following week.

Group and private classes available to suit all. We specialise in helping parents with premature and special needs babies. Receipts provided for health insurance refunds from Quinn Healthcare, VHI and Aviva; where covered.
