Infant Massage Class

Birthing Hands of DC & Hot Mama Fitness Studio

“Infant Massage for the Expectant and New Parent”

Sunday, December 14, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Hot Mama Fitness Studio
4715 Cordell Avenue, Suite 200
Bethesda, MD 20814

Expectant parents and new parents with a child between the age of 0-6 months (pre-crawling) are invited to this class.

By creating safe and easy to learn techniques, Gentle Touch™ Massage involves the use of relaxation techniques, the application of massage strokes and gentle movements on the infant. These techniques will improve your infant’s sleep patterns and promote bonding between you and your infant. Also, these massage strokes can help to relieve your infant’s gas, colic and constipation, and work to strengthen your infant's immune system.

Please bring: a pre-crawling baby or a baby doll, standard size pillow,
and oil/lotion.
