Infant/Parent Instruction

Infant massage therapy helps promote healthy development in infants and can benefit your growing baby in many ways, from improved growth and development in the brain and nervous system, to strengthened immune system functioning and regulated sleeping patterns. While this therapy is beneficial to your little one no matter what, I believe it’s most beneficial when applied by someone close and familiar to your baby.

Infant Massage & Tummy Time!™ is the opportunity for your baby to learn how to use his or her body with the support and comfort of mom and/or dad near by.  It is a process that is learned best over several sessions.  Tummy Time!™ helps your baby’s physical, emotional, proprioceptive, social-relational development through the instruction of the ‘how’s and why’s’ of tummy time, infant massage, baby yoga/reflexology, soothing techniques and more.

Sessions available in home, in office, and via skype. All sessions include some or all of the following:

  • Infant Massage Instruction
  • Tummy Time!™ Tutoring
  • Soothing Techniques
  • Hands-on Bodywork treatments for your baby by Molly

Learning how to take care of your baby in this way can not only give them all of these physical and developmental benefits, but can also help to develop stronger bonds and attachments between you and your baby. The first year of your baby’s life is a crucial one full of lots of growing and changes, but learning how to provide massage therapy can help your baby get the most out of their first year of life.
