Class Times:

Wednesday 11 AM

  • The classes last approx 1-1.5 hours
  • I supply mats, towels and oil for your convenience. It’s not easy to remember everything when you are heading out with baby!
  • The classes are baby led and crying is welcome.
  • Each class starts with some relaxation for parents, this is followed by baby massage.
  • We then have tea/coffee and a discussion about a relevant topic.
  • The 5 week course costs €125. Check with your health insurance provider regarding reimbursement/refund.

Private lessons

You may choose to learn baby massage in the privacy of your own home. If so I am happy to visit you on 3 occasions until we have covered all of the massage strokes for your baby.
The cost for private lessons is €125 for 3 sessions (plus travel depending on location). Check with your health insurance provider regarding reimbursement/refund.

1:1 sessions for The Colic Routine

I am available for daily, evening and weekend call-outs for the Colic Routine.

Many babies experience discomfort due to gas, wind, colic, constipation and upset tummy. I have experienced this first hand with one of my own children.

The colic routine is a particular sequence of abdominal/tummy massage strokes developed by Vimala McClure following extensive study, and also her experience of massage and yoga. 

The Benefits of the colic routine are:

  • Promotes normal function of the digestive system
  • Tones the digestive system
  • Assists elimination of wind and waste
  • Releases built up stress
  • Reduces crying
  • Improves sleep
  • Helps the baby to learn to relax – so that tension does not worsen baby’s discomfort.
