Little Tiny Therapies For Little Tiny people!
Wednesday 1st November to Wednesday 22nd November
HELD & HOLD – BABY MASSAGE CLASSES
Age range: From 6 weeks to pre-crawling!
Ideally, babies should have had their 6 week health check.
Baby massage classes are a great opportunity to bond with your little tiny person as well as meet new friends, share experiences, build confidence with support and laugh at this wonderful but sometimes overwhelming time.
Whilst the baby massage classes focus on bonding and attachment through positive touch we also discuss the issues that parenthood brings.
‘Real conversations about the big stuff and the small stuff’.
“Our attachment and bonding with our primary caregivers during the first three years of childhood is the most important relationship we develop (Ainsworth & Bowlby, 1991)”.
