Developmental Baby Massage and Baby Shiatsu
The first year of life is crucial in the development of the child and of the adult the child will become. Babies thrive when they feel they are welcome, safe, loved and accepted. They come to know these things through us; our touch, our interaction, our engaged presence. Offer this gift and you are laying down the strongest foundations from which your baby can thrive.
For parents -and mothers recovering from pregnancy and childbirth in particular, the first few months after having a baby can be utterly exhausting and overwhelming, with little or no time to recover from giving birth. Receiving support and nurturing at this time may be crucial for your wellbeing as well as your capacity to care for your little one. Here is a gift you can offer to yourself. I specialise in bodywork for both mother and infant and teach you tools that will benefit and empower you both. I offer this baby therapy from my clinic in Bristol.
What are the benefits of Baby Shiatsu?
I offer developmental baby massage sessions in Bristol where I work directly with your baby. I incorporate aspects of baby massage, shiatsu, baby yoga, baby body language therapy and developmental movement patterning to provide therapeutic support for babies up to walking age.
You may choose to bring your baby to me to address issues such as colic, reflux, constipation, sleep difficulties or developmental delay. But there needn’t be anything wrong with your baby to benefit from a treatment. I also provide you with games, massage techniques or handling ideas for use at home in between sessions.
Babies remain clothed throughout the session, please dress your baby in something loose and comfy. Often babies need a really good sleep after a session.
