Soo Pilates Baby Massage teaches wonderful massage techniques to help relax both babies and parents. We specialise in providing private lessons in the comfort of your own home and small group sessions for you and your baby in London.
Massage is one of the greatest gifts you can share with your infant. As a parent you know the benefits of loving nurturing touch – infant massage is simply an extension of what you know is good.
Research suggests that babies who receive regular massages are more settled and sleep more soundly, which naturally leads to a more relaxed parent. Baby massage is suitable from birth and is regularly taught to mums (including mums to be), dads and grandparents.
These are just a few of the benefits of massage for you and your baby:
- Promotes bonding and secure attachment
- Improved sleep patterns
- Relief from digestive cramps/constipation/gas/wind
- Relief from colic
- Reduction of stress hormones in both mother and baby
- Increase in relaxing hormones in both mother and baby
- Promotes connecting with your baby through non-verbal communication
- Better understanding of your baby’s ‘cues’
- Provides opportunity for quality one-on-one with your baby
At Soo Pilates we have been running popular daddy baby massage courses. We promise we won’t make dads sing nursery rhymes (unless you want to). We just offer straightforward, useful skills taught in a fun, supportive environment for dads looking to have some 1:1 bonding time with their new baby, connect with other dads and build confidence. Saturday classes to fit in with your busy schedule and give mum some time to herself.
Unlike many baby massage instructors, we are qualified Sports Massage Therapists, and Pilates instructors specialising in pre and post natal work. Along with fully CRB/DBS checked, you can be confident in getting the very best information in the safest environment for both baby and parent.
Find out more about Tina and the Team.
Before starting with Tina, my son suffered from reflux, frequent gas pains and had a large umbilical hernia caused by his constant straining.
Tina helped show me different massage strokes to help alleviate those issues – fast forward several weeks and I now have a much happier baby – his hernia has almost fully disappeared, he vomits less and hardly ever struggles to poo or fart.
Tina is a talented lady with a lovely soul – she makes you feel very welcome and listens to your needs.
Thank you Tina for helping me have a healthy and happy baby!Suzanne – West Hampstead
Having a newborn in your life can sometimes feel daunting, especially if you have a tiny baby like mine. Tina gave me the confidence to touch my little one and feel that I wouldn’t break him! Not only did I learn how to massage my son I also learned a lot more about his behaviour thanks to Tina’s guidance.
He is now 10 weeks old and we both enjoy precious moments throughout our day when I can help him to relax, especially when he is suffering from nasty wind.
Tina is a wonderful teacher, I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to show me the appropriate massage techniques that I now know.Jackie – Kensal Rise
