  • What is an infant massage class / course?
    Infant massage classes teach parents how to massage their babies safely and effectively. These course are designed to foster bonding, relieve symptoms like gas, and promote better sleep. Kim Geasley, our Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM), provides hands-on guidance in various techniques as well as specific protocol for gas and colic relief.
  • Who should enroll in baby massage class / course?
    Any parent with a baby from birth to pre-crawling. It is recommended that only parents massage their babies as this is not only a practice that promotes physical well being, but also bonding and attachment between parent and child.
  • Can I learn baby massage online?
    Yes! We offer online infant massage classes that provide training in infant massage through virtual sessions. These classes are perfect for those who prefer learning from home but still want all the benefits of our in-person classes.
  • Will Kim come to my home for private classes?
    Yes! Classes can be held in the comfort of your own home for a minimum of 4 parents and babies and a maximum of 6 parents and babies. This is perfect for a moms’ group looking for a fun way to connect with each other. Private family classes, including both parents and their baby, are also available for an additional fee. In-home classes are only available for Williamson, southern Davidson, and northern Maury counties. You can email Kim for details and pricing.
  • What benefits does infant massage provide?
    There are many benefits to massage! They include interaction, stimulation, relaxation and relief. Regular massage can also help regulate sleep patterns and reduce crying. The beauty is that you as a parent can incorporate the techniques in a way that is beneficial to your baby and your family’s routine.
  • Do I need to use oil?
    Yes! We recommend something from the pantry, ideally organic, cold pressed vegetable or fruit oil that is unscented and edible. (Examples are coconut, olive or MCT oil). Baby oil is not recommended as it is petroleum based.
  • What if I live far from you? Is there an infant massage class / courses near me?
    We strive to make our classes easily accessible. For those who cannot attend in person, our online baby massage classes are a great alternative.
  • Can both parents attend class together?
    Absolutely! It is ideal that both parents master the techniques of infant massage. In this case, we recommend that during the class, one parent massages baby for the entire session to maintain consistency while the other parent practices on a doll or stuffed animal.
  • What if my baby is asleep during class?
    Because infant massage is baby led, we consider it something we do WITH our babies rather than TO them. In the event your baby is sleeping during class, please let them sleep! You can have a doll or stuffed animal on hand to practice on until you are able to practice with your baby.
  • How often should I massage my baby?
    While individual needs vary, you know your baby best. You can incorporate the techniques in any way you choose. Some families like morning and others prefer to use it as a calming part of the bedtime routine. As you learn your baby, you will be able to determine what works best for him or her. During class, Kim will provide guidelines on how often and how long each session should be based on your baby's age and responsiveness. Join us to learn more!
