Our Baby Massage Courses
STAGE 1 Baby Massage
Rubba-Bubba is a small, calm and friendly group of 10-12 parents and babies in an informal and fun environment. Ideally your baby should be from 6 weeks- crawling, however from newborn is absolutely fine, it’s at your discretion when you and your baby are ready to join, you are very welcome from newborn – NO Doctors notes required.
The instructors will guide you through the easy-to-follow baby massage strokes, concentrating on a different body part each week.
The sessions are run on a weekly basis to allow you plenty of time to practice the massage strokes in the privacy of your own home if you like. Don’t worry if your baby needs changing or feeding, the class is baby-led and his/her needs always come first. We massage a different body part each week and recap from the week before in case you can’t make it. The class is a rolling course so you are welcome to book on to as many courses and come as long as you would like to. Each week we massage for around 20-30 minutes then have tea, refreshments and a natter! After 6 weeks you will be able to do a full body massage on your baby and reap the benefits that follow.
Everything including organic baby massage oil is provided for class (Fees may apply). We stock organic baby massage oil in class for home use, this can also be purchased from our Online Shop
STAGE 2 Baby Massage
The baby massage strokes are specially adapted for the more busy, rolling, sitting up (or nearly) inquisitive and nearly mobile baby. Suitable from 4 months. We sing songs in both English and Welsh (venue dependant) along with the massage strokes, play with lots of sensory toys, bubbles etc for a very interactive and fun class. If your baby hasn’t done baby massage before and is around 4 months we encourage you to take stage 1 first.
