There are many ways babies may benefit from infant massage.

This introductory session will teach you how to recognise your baby's signals in regards to when they do (and don't) want massage, how to choose an appropriate oil for your infant or child and a basic stroke routine.

Learn about the wonderful benefits of massage for both parent and child in this ‘hands on’ and informative workshop. Bring your baby for a truly special bonding experience or practice on one of our lifelike baby dolls in readiness for your little one’s upcoming arrival.

Come and experience our baby massage introduction workshop - the first 15 people attending the workshop will receive a FREE GAIA Natural Baby Goody Bag. If you are participating in the workshop with your bub (0-8months) you will also receive a free GAIA Natural Baby 50ml Massage Oil.
