Why not start baby massage classes of your own?

Rubba-bubba is building a very reputable brand that parents can trust. Our mission is to provide small, safe and personal classes for parents and their babies to get the most out of this special time together.

With Rubba-bubba you would have a flexible, family orientated, rewarding business. Choose your hours, the days you wish to work and the amount of classes you would like to run. You could make such a difference to the parents in your community who are just beginning their journey with their new baby.

Owning Your
Own Business

You don’t have the risk of being by yourself. You have the safety net of a brand with the freedom of your own classes and running them the way you want to. The hard work of developing the brand, the lesson plans, the admin, the stationary, the website, the booking system (I could go on…) has been done so that you have the best possible chance of success.

Our comprehensive accredited 2 day training course will fully equip you with the confidence and knowledge to run your own successful baby massage classes




This is one of the only baby massage courses in the UK where you don’t have to be a health professional, hold an adult massage certificate or be a qualified practitioner. All you need is average child development knowledge, an enthusiastic, friendly attitude and motivation to make a difference. This course is approved by IICT

Qualified Massage Therapists -level 3+, Health Visitors, Midwives & qualified Nursery Nurses are also welcome. The course is just day 1 of the course with a practical assessment in your setting. Seeing the booking form below to book your space. This course is accredited by IICT and CTHa



Fantastic class…

I really enjoyed the course! It was a small enough group that it felt really personal and Tash was a wonderful instructor, patient, funny and approachable. Every module was explained fully, and repeated if need be, it was fun and hands-on and it was interactive too which got all our imaginations going, I left with so many ideas about how I’m going to make the most out of my business!
