Infant massage is the positive nurturing touch that builds on the bonding and relationship between parent/carer and child.
We are currently running virtual Infant Massage groups via Microsoft Teams.
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.
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.
