My name is Jelena and I am freshly qualified infant baby massage instructor. I was trained by Academy of Infant Massage and Yoga To Baby and Beyond and their course is accredited by the IPTI, RCM, IICT and the CPD Standatds Office.
I strongly believe in and value the early relationship between parents/carers and their babies. I feel that Baby Massage is perfect to promote the bonding between them, through teaching the loving touch and positive emotions and communication.
I heard about and experienced the baby massage for the first time when my youngest child was 6 weeks old and our local health visitor was running weekly classes to teach first time parent how to massage their baby/babies. My son didn’t like it there at all but enjoyed when I massaged him at home, so I was attending each session just to learn the strokes, communicate with other parents and to have a reason to get out of the house (what can be very hard, especially after being up all night). Much later, when I had my second son and he had problems with trapped wind, I started to search for help and was referred back to baby massage. Only then I realised that it is good not only for relationship between parent and baby but also helps with colic, improves sleep, calming etc. Now when both of my boys are older and I am ready to become somebody else, not just a mother, I have made the decision that I want to run my own classes and share my knowledge with others.
I understand very well that classes and communication in a group is not for everyone. I am happy to come to your house, as like that both you and your baby are in a more comfortable atmosphere.
Baby massage is definitely not just for babies, it is all about doing it with your baby!

One to one baby massage in comfort of your own home costs £20 per session or £50 for 3 sessions. The massage session itself lasts about 45 minutes but usually I will spend with you around 90 minutes, as we all know, babies have their own needs and I am trying to be as flexible as I can.
One to one teaching allows you to be confident in your technique and you won’t have the hassle of trying to organise leaving the house with your baby.
One to one group baby massage is held in small group of 2-3 friends with babies in one of your homes (or you can take turns). These classes are not only great fun but also a good way of keeping in touch with friends while learning baby massage techniques. Cost of one session is £10 per parent or £25 per parent for 3 sessions.
