How does it work?

Mummies with little bundles from 6 weeks old and beyond get together at one of your homes for one morning or afternoon each week for 4 weeks.

Each week we go over the amount of pressure that is safe to use on your baby, we ask the babies for permission and even though we use a super safe oil (Grapeseed) we show you how to do an allergy test in case you decide to move onto a different oil one day.

We then go through that week’s demonstration together then pair up to repeat then I go over it again so you would’ve done the routine 3 times before practising at home with your handouts, the following week we go over it all again before moving onto the next routine – all this will be explained at your Introduction to baby massage session.

  • Baby massage is a wonderful course. Kia is extremely knowledgeable and made the course really good fun. It’s a great way to bond with your baby as well. Kia is very professional and the resources she provided for us and the in depth knowledge she gave us was brilliant.  The course is very good value for money and having it done in your house is great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

  • Kia has been a brilliant find for me. First she did pregnancy massage which was divine. Latterly she has taught me and my NCT group baby massage and again has outdone herself.  Some of the group had concerns  so she provided a taster session to start to allow us to ask any questions we had and as we were so happy with her we ended up doing a 4 session course.  All sessions were in the comfort of our own homes & were at a nice relaxed pace. If someone struggled she’d spend time with them personally and if you had to feed/change a nappy then this was all taken in her stride.  If someone missed a session then she was willing to go to their home and do a one-to-one all within the initial price – you couldn’t ask for better value for money.  Thank you Kia, I will continue to seek you out for massages for myself!

  • ‘My new baby Alfie and I have just completed our four week baby massage course taught by Kia. It was fantastic! Kia is a wonderful teacher who made me and my 7 friends and their babies, all feel completely at ease, despite the fact that there were regular nappy changes and feedings that could’ve disrupted the flow of the session. It was great to have the sessions in one of our homes with less time constraints. Kia had a huge amount of patience and the session only finished when we were all confident with the techniques we had learned. The course was well structured, a lovely baby-bonding experience and lots of fun! I would highly recommend!’

  • Thankyou for such a wonderful baby massage course. I would never have realised just how brilliant it is to do the course at home if my friend hadn’t recommended you. It was so great to get together with a group of friends every week and share such special time with our babies. You never rushed us and you were so calm- even when the babies were melting down!! You made it seem really easy and had you made it fun!

    Thankyou so much- I’ll definitely be recommending you to my friends!! Now then, I just need to find time for a mummy massage… 😉

  • Thank you so much for running our recent session with the babies. You made us all feel really comfortable and gave us confidence with our little ones and adapted the session as required when they started to get a little tired </p></div><div class=

  • We had a group baby massage session for our new arrivals and the whole experience was great. Kia was very friendly, relaxed and professional and no one was made to feel awkward when the babies screamed through parts of the session! I would highly recommend Kia for baby massage and I will definitely book a massage with her in the near future.

  • As a first time mother of a 6 week old baby I was quite nervous of attending classes or even leaving the house but I’m so glad I decided to do the baby massage class with Kia. For a start it’s a really relaxing environment.  We were always reassured that we could feed, change our babies at any time or just let them have a nap and not worry. During the break kia would then go through anything we or our babies missed.  The massage itself was broken down into manageable parts and we reviewed everything at the beginning and end of each session which definitely made me more confident about doing the massage at home.  Harry has really enjoyed it too and the leg and head massage techniques have been a hit. We now use them when i’m changing him and during play.  It soothes and calms him and mum enjoys them too. I would highly recommend kia’s baby massage classes to any mum or dad.

Private Group Baby Massage

Generally this works via Mums who have a circle of mums that have met via ante natal groups etc.

Some ladies choose to rotate the sessions around each other’s homes or sometimes it’s been easier to stick to the one location each week, It’s up to you and really depends on the size of the group.

I can do one to one sessions or groups of up to 10 mums and babies (feel free to bring partners along).

Even though I say “A morning or an afternoon” the sessions don’t take that length of time, I say to allow a “flexible hour” – this is to allow for feeding, changing nappies, settling etc… I just block out my diary so there’s no pressure for you to rush! If you need to feed etc. then we just go over whatever section you missed when you’ve finished, the same goes for if you’re about to leave to the house to come to the session and you find the opportunity to put the washing on….do it, we’ll catch up when you arrive. My sessions are very relaxed yet very informative!

I am happy to teach Baby Massage in Essex and London area, price is bespoke depnding on how far I need to travel.
