Baby massage promotes communication and bonding through touch and body language cues. In terms of common baby ailments, baby massage can also help ease symptoms of colic, constipation & wind, as well as encouraging restful sleep and calmness. Classes are approximately 90 minutes and are suitable for babies from newborn to pre- crawler, and class numbers are small to maintain an informal and welcoming atmosphere.
Story Massage is a fun and interactive way of combining the creativity of storytelling with the benefits of massage. Everyone can join in, whatever age or ability. Massage strokes are on shoulders, back, arms and head. No oil is used and children do not need to remove any clothes. Movements are safe and can be adapted to suit varying personalities and temperaments. Positive touch through storytelling can be especially beneficial for children with special/additional needs.

Ear Candling (with facial massage)
Organic hollow cotton candles are used for this treatment. The candle is supported at the opening of the ear canal, and burns for about 10mins while the client is lying on their side. The warmth of the candle and the gentle suction it creates helps to relieve problems such as compacted ear wax, hayfever, stress, sinusitis, snoring and headaches. The treatment also includes a facial massage, which stimulates movement of lymph, which is key to tackling stubborn colds and congestion.
