Baby Massage Class
Baby Massage is a wonderful way for you and your partner to express your love, to give gently nurturing and to bond with your baby with your hands. You might find it relaxing for yourself as well.
Our instructor, Makhasiri Budlerd aka Marchie, was trained under the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). Her style of lesson conduction comprises the positive effects of Indian and Swedish massages, as well as principle from Yoga and reflexology, into a simple and respectful routine. In the long run, we want to educate the practice of massaging babies, as it has always been part of the ancient tradition that passed down for generations to generations.
