Infant Massage Class

When 
Thursday 10:00 am to 11:00 am
Where 
Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital | second floor, Pediatric Therapy Department | Roanoke, Va

After all the months of waiting and dreaming, it is exciting when your baby is finally born.  But it takes time and effort for parents to get to know their newborn, and time for the newborn to adjust to the new world. 

Infant massage is one way to help make this process easier.  Parents have always loved touching and stroking their babies, and babies love to be soothed and cuddled.  Part of a baby's emotional and neurological development comes from the interactions of touch and feelings of security it offers.

This is a one hour per week, four-week infant massage course, taught by a certified infant massage trainer for infants one month to one year of age.  In this class you will learn how to massage your infant to assist with bonding, constipation, crying and colic, sleep, teething, and communication.

Registration Information: Registration is required. Please call 540-266-6000 or 800-422-8482.
