Baby Massage is a unique experience between Parent, Carer and babies promoting nurturing touch and communication in early weeks and months of life. Using gentle massage strokes, touch is a way of a baby learning about their world, environment, and their, own self, by sending messages through the skin, thus building a bonding relationship, between parent and child, developing a special love and trust unique to themselves and their family unit.

Owl Baby Massage classes are an opportunity to follow an inspirational programme, developed by Vimula McClure founder of The International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM).

IAIM classes are led by trained instructors and are now available in 40 countries throughout the world.
