Suzie says…


“Practicing baby massage helped me to form a bond with my son after a difficult birth, allowing me to gain deeper physical awareness of him, helping release body held birth trauma and for us to connect, it was a way for us to begin to tune into each other and for me to start to understand his body language

Especially helpful as my little son suffered with Torticollis (wry neck), terrible colic and silent reflux in his early months, during this time I gained great first hand experience of what helps. For me teaching developmental baby massage to new parents is the most rewarding job I do.”
