BABY MASSAGE – Evening seminar / workshop for nannies / matertniy nurses

Intro­duc­tion to baby mas­sa­ge for mate­r­ni­ty nan­nies in pri­va­te households

In this three-hour evening semi­nar, you will learn the basics for a suc­cessful baby massage.
Stu­dies show that babies who are mas­sa­ged regu­lar­ly cry less, sleep bet­ter, and gain weight. Mas­sa­ge helps babies beco­me awa­re of their bodies and sti­mu­la­tes neu­ro­lo­gi­cal deve­lo­p­ment. In addi­ti­on, the inten­si­ve time that par­ents con­scious­ly devo­te to their child­ren during the mas­sa­ge streng­thens the parent-child bond and helps them to get to know their babies bet­ter and to cor­rect­ly assess their beha­vi­or. This in turn helps to make ever­y­day fami­ly life more relaxed.

Many fami­lies sup­port their nan­ny in their desi­re for more edu­ca­ti­on. They pay for part or all of the cour­se and give her time off in order to be able to attend. If you would like to attend a semi­nar and are not sure how to pay for the fee, we will find a solu­ti­on. Just give us a call.
