Did you know that infant massage has proven psychological and physical benefits for babies and toddlers? We have just completed another baby massage course for massage therapists at our training school in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Our students were fantastic and completed work on baby anatomy and physiology, benefits of infant massage, working with carers and babies, communicating in a positive and professional manner, teaching individuals and small groups and much much more. It was lovely to have two gorgeous visitors today too; one was only 6 weeks old and the other was 8 months.

Did you know that a good night’s sleep can begin on the massage table? When was the last time you woke feeling refreshed and energetic, having woken naturally from your sleep without the intrusion of your alarm clock, and felt ready to conquer the world? Not sure? No, for far too many of us that feeling is dim and distant, or something that can only be achieved during a holiday rather than in the midst of the day-to-day grind of life.
