Infant massage

Infant massage is the positive nurturing touch that builds on the bonding and relationship between parent/carer and child.

We are currently running virtual and face to face infant massage groups.

Infant Massage promotes communication through positive touch including cuddles.  It is also increasingly recognised as offering a wide range of benefits for both child and care giver which may include relief from the pain of indigestion, colic, constipation or wind.

icon Classes [151Kb] are delivered by Community Planning Partners across Perth & Kinross and all tutors are Scottish School of Child and Baby Massage trained.

If you are a parent or carer of a child 6 weeks-6 months or working with any families who meet the referral criteria and you think may benefit from the service please speak to your local health visitor or contact the Perth & Kinross Council Parenting and Family Learning Team on 01738 477697 for more information.
