During my years of performing different types of infant massage treatments and hosting workshops for mums.
I have learnt that babes really need massage.
Being born is quite a journey, and being professionally massaged to process that journey and your mum learning to massage you at the same time, is a great skill for your mum to learn.
I offer Private 1 hour session @ a cost of R800, including a take home manual, so you can empower yourself further to assist your baby.
This treatment is highly beneficial for all babes, but specifically to Cesarean born babes, having missed out on pressure massage which occurs as the baby goes through the birthing canal, they have missed out on vital neurological stimulation of specific trigger points in their bodies which are triggered-stimulated during the contraction process and moving down the birth canal. Receiving one of my many specific massages can stimulate some of these trigger.
A single session is, however, just the tip of the iceberg-if you really want to have the further massage skills to nurture your babe, I strongly recommend that you attend one of my group workshops or read some testimonials from mum's who have attended in the past.
Why Attend one of Alison's Infant Group Massage Workshops?
Infant Massage is beneficial for all babies, but if you have a Colicky/Fussy Baby or are you are Overwhelmed? then you need to definitely have a massage session yourself and attend a private sessions or a workshop.
Massage enhances your infant's development, deepens the loving communication between you and your child,
and provides an opportunity for you and your baby to develop a relationship built on love and respect that will last a lifetime!
