Infant Massage Classes
February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 15, 2017
Lakewood Health System is offering a free, five-week class on infant massage, led by certified massage therapist, Laura Sonenstahl. The class will take place every Wednesday in the lower level classrooms at Lakewood’s main campus (49725 Cty. 83, Staples) from 6 to 7 p.m., starting on January 18.
This class is open to all parents and caregivers, to learn how to massage their infants (under 12 months). Each week, parents and caregivers will learn special massage strokes for a new part of the body, while reviewing strokes from previous classes. Massage has been shown to improve circulation, regulate sleep patterns, stimulate digestive system, and may relieve colic or gas. It also can improve communication between parent and infant, and parents may feel more relaxed and confident in understanding their baby’s cues.
To sign up, you can register on line, call 218-894-8425 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited.
