Baby Massage

New! Private Baby Massage Course in English

Baby massage is a great way to spend time with your baby.  The Shantala baby massage method is defined by it’s simplicity and with its mesmerizing rhythmic movements, it is very relaxing the baby as well as it’s mother or father, it enhances a baby’s sense of security, their sleep patterns as well as their immune-systems. It also promotes a healthy bonding process, and helps with self-regulation.

This method was brought from India to Europe by Fredric Leboyer, a French doctor who observed women in India massaging their baby’s with this rhythmic technique. A young mother called Shantala let him observe and photograph her as she massaged her son outside and he decided to name the method after her. It was then later adapted to Western lifestyle needs and this is what we teach mothers now. A beautiful tradition worthy of passing on.

You can now learn the whole Shantala Babymassage in the comfort of your home. Paulina teaches you as a parent or both of you, the Shantala Babymassage techniques in two 1-hour home visits. In this way you can stay in the comfort of your own home and you don’t have to travel with the little one. At the end of the course, your baby will enter into a tummy tub, so please have a large towel handy to dry your baby afterwards.
