Zen Baby Massage
WE ARE BACK !!
4-week course beginning Monday 19th April at 11am... face to face!
2 spaces left- book now to save your spot.
Every single session I lead, I find myself falling in love more and more with the magic of baby massage. Whether it be a class in person, or online.
Either way, the progress I see between starting and finishing the course is just beautiful and truly astounding.
Infant massage is an incredible way of expressing love, care and respect through touch.
It creates an unbreakable bond between baby and caregiver, which can last a lifetime.
“Infant massage is one tool we have to help reshape our child's interpretations of the world, to release her pain, grief, and fear, and to open her up to love and joy.”
Vimala McClure - credited with bringing the ancient art of Infant Massage to the West.

Zen Baby sessions...
I trained and created Zen Baby after attending a massage session with my own baby. I would practise the strokes every day and realised what joy it was and what incredible benefits it brought myself and my little bundle!
I met some fantastic people along the way and made some lifelong friends.
I truly believe it's important to bring people together and support each other, whether it be in a group or private session. We need that time out to bond and relax with baby and develop the sense of loving touch.
Currently, our group sessions run online via Zoom due to the current pandemic.
This creates a different experience to in person courses, but really there are huge positives - you can stay at home, in the warm, in your pjamas!
Once we are allowed to get back up and running, they take place at the beautiful location of the Cartlodge, within Horam Manor Farm.
After the sessions, you may spy horses, goats, sheep, ducks and maybe even treat yourself to a piece of cake at the Lakeside Cafe!
All face-to-face sessions are Covid-19 safe and will be done with all social distancing rules adhered to and practised.
Hand gel and wipes will be available for all, and masks will be worn until you and baby are safely in your own space on the mat.
We will work on the legs, arms, hands and feet as well as the chest, back, head and of course the belly! We also include sensory play and you will receive your own oil and handouts to take home, as well as a special sensory gift.
Please contact me with any questions or queries.
Love & zen vibes, Frances xx
