My teacher is in town!
For those who have read and/or attended any of the 5 of 5 Meetups we had in the beginning of the New Year; we were able to learn lots of information about Infant Massage, bond with our infant, with other parents, get out of the house for some crisp Chicago air and of course have fun in the process:)
Now, I have just heard, that my teacher is in town and she will be having a 3 day Infant Massage Workshop Demo, which her students will lead for their training and I wanted to let you know because it's a great opportunity to learn even more about infant massage and to make a trip downtown to the heart of the city too. :)
Everyone is welcome and at any level. I plan to attend with my son, not leading the massage, but sitting in on it as a guest as well; and so I look forward to seeing you all there too!
Infant Massage is a great way to connect to your baby. Studies have shown infant massage can help babies sleep better, gain weight, reduce fussiness, improve health and relax. Parents who massage their babies often experience increased closeness to and understanding of their infants, reduced stress and post-natal depression, and simply enjoy a wonderful experience with their child. Bring your baby and your partner, if available. This is a great class for fathers! Pack a towel or baby blanket you do not mind getting oil on, and a change of diapers and clothes. You will be the only one massaging your baby.
This parent-baby class is part of an Infant Massage Parent Educator Training, run by Jody Wright CEIM CLC, trainer for Infant Massage USA . Jody Wright is a founder of the International Association of Infant Massage, with its international offices in Sweden. She is a lactation counselor, served as the president of the Motherwear catalog for 20 years, and is a mother of five who lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Please contact me, if you have any questions:)
All the best,
