Welcome to Calm Palms I am a fully qualified Infant Massage Instructor. I trained with the International Association of Infant Massage. I am a parent myself and have over 18 years experience in raising 2 children who are now very much their own people and have a great future ahead of them.
My classes are as much about the parents as they are the babies. My passion is to offer parents the ability to connect and bond with their babies which will become a skill you will be able to adapt to your growing child. Touch is the first sense a human develops in the womb and the last sense to leave our bodies.
About My Classes
My classes are either in a group setting in the lovely Village Hall in Braishfield on a Wednesday morning. Groups are small to ensure that you and your baby feel comfortable and have a relaxing experience.
Hosted courses are run from the comfort of your own home either in small groups (maximum of 5) or on a one to one Designed with you in mind sessions are at a time that suits you. I live in Chandlers Ford and will travel up to 10 miles if you live further away you can still host a course although an additional mileage cost may be added split between the group.
Private 121 courses.
if you would prefer a private 121 course this will be run at your home at at time that suits you. Perhaps your baby was early and you would like to learn the art of bonding and massage but are not ready to venture out yet, or you would like a private course that your partner can also attend. If you have twins or multiple births and just find it difficult to get out then a private course may work for you too.
IAIM Infant massage courses allow you to learn the ancient art of infant massage. You will learn strokes on the legs tummy chest arms face and back alongside gentle movements and colic routine. My classes are open to all parents. Babies from birth to 12 months. Classes are baby led and it is fine for babies to cry, sleep feed, be changed during the class. I supply all equipment, organic scent free oil, a parent handout & refreshments so that you can relax and enjoy the class.
