Infant Massage Class

When 
Thursday 10:00 am to 11:00 am
Where 
Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital, 2nd Fl. 101 Elm Ave. Rke., VA 24013

After all the months of waiting and dreaming, it is exciting when your baby is finally born. 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, 2 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. 

The dates for this class are 01/05/17 and 01/19/17

Beyond bonding, this course can also help with:

  • Stress relief (for babies and parents)
  • Growth and development
  • Gas
  • Symptoms of colic
  • Increasing parents’ confidence and sensitivity to baby’s signals and cues
  • Weight gain and neurological development in premature babies

Registration required by calling 540-266-6000 or 800-422-8482.
