Infant massage is an ancient tradition found in many countries and consisting in a particular form of communication stimulating and protecting the development of a child. It is a simple and effective tool to enhance children’s well-being, stimulating their vital systems and providing relief in case of minor ailments. The course follows the massage method promoted by A.I.M.I. Associazione Italiana Massaggio Infantile (Italian Infant Massage Association) and is aimed at parents with children up to 12 months’ old. It is articulated into 5 weekly sessions attended by the mother, father or both parents and their child. Each practices massage with their own child in a welcoming and respectful environment, following the teacher’s directions who will demonstrate the techniques on a doll. Each session will be devoted to massaging a specific part of the body, and at the end of the course you will have the tools to independently practice the entire sequence, a special experience to be repeated with your child during his/her development. Beyond massage techniques the course also offers: moments of reflection on the parent-child bond, specific massage techniques to soothe colics, social occasions to compare notes, development and support in the art of parenthood.
Another timetable for a group of at least three children and private lessons, also at home, may be arranged.
