Strong Communities, Strengthen Families!
Be informed and stay a step ahead with our Infant Massage Class! Offered Every Monday during the month of April!


Whether it’s to soothe a little one to dreamland, ease a gassy belly, or calm a fussy baby, a gentle massage can work wonders — and the power is in your tender touch.


Of the five senses, touch is the one that’s most developed at birth. Research suggests that infant massage has enormous benefits for helping babies grow and thrive including:
• Easing tummy troubles
• Boosting muscle development
• Helping soothe to sleep


What’s more, giving your baby a massage can help you find your own sense of calm!
