Courses are 5 weeks, with each session lasting around 1 hour 15 minutes. This includes massage session and some time at the end for tea / coffee and a chat! Courses are held in my home in South Woodford, London E18, so provide a lovely warm and comfortable environment for both you and your baby. Classes are also kept small - 5 maximum - in order to keep them intimate and provide a relaxed atmosphere.
A course costs £50 and a booking deposit is required. The price includes a bottle of massage oil to use during sessions, stroke technique skills sheets for you to take home, refreshments and a certificate on completing your course.
How old should my baby be to attend a massage course?
Babies can attend massage courses from birth up until crawling. However, this is just a guide and if your baby is already crawling, but happy to lay still generally, they should be happy to attend massage classes.
When are courses run?
Courses in South Woodford currently run on different days, depending on demand. Contact me for more information on the latest couirse days.
Would you like your partner to learn the benefits of massaging your baby? Have a lovely opportunity to bond and spend quality time with your little one at the weekend? All too often Dads miss out on these chances, due to work commitments in the week, so I also offer Dads-only courses. These are run as a fast-track, 2 week course on Sundays at 11am and cost £30.
Is the Butterfly Training course fully accredited?
The Butterfly Training baby massage and baby yoga courses are fully accredited by the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT), the Independent Professional Therapists Institute (IPTI), the Complementary Therapists Association (CThA) and the Royal Colleage of Midwives (RCM). Training was completed with Hands on Babies (www.handsonbabies.co.uk), who are the only organisation to offer an RCM accrediated course in the UK.
I offer bespoke courses - either in my home or other locations - if you and a group of friends would like to sign up for a course together and the above time is not feasible (5 people minimum). I also run 1:1 courses, if that is your preference. Further information available on request.
