Loving Hands Infant Massage was founded in 2020 by Sharelle Solomon with the aim to support parents and primary care givers to bond with their babies through the power of nurturing touch. Sharelle knows how important touch is for a baby’s development and has witnessed first-hand, the many wonderful benefits Massage has for both parent and baby. Sharelle is passionate about encouraging strong and long-lasting bonds through Infant Massage, so she founded Loving Hands Infant Massage to help with this process.
Sharelle is an Infant Massage Instructor and a member of the International Association of Infant Massage. The comprehensive IAIM curriculum covers touch, movement, relaxation, and communication and teaches a progression of rhythmic strokes and holds to soothe and relax your baby, as well as promoting their wellbeing. Loving Hands Infant Massage offers full infant massage courses from birth to one year.
During our 5 week massage course I will demonstrate how to massage your baby with confidence and ease, and discuss the many wonderful benefits of nurturing touch, how to use massage to deal with colic and constipation, and the best time and way to massage your baby.
Our classes offer a relaxed and non-judgemental environment, where you are welcome to feed, change and generally see to your baby’s needs throughout the class. Classes last 1hr30mins including an opportunity to unwind with refreshments and have some much-needed social time, making it the perfect first class to attend with your baby and a great way to meet other new parents.
Each week we will massage a new body area slowly building up to a full routine including some gentle movements which are based on principles of yoga.
I am devoted to teaching you the loving art of Infant Massage whilst delivering a comprehensive programme which I hope you will thoroughly enjoy.
I hope you find the course inspiring and enjoy this wonderful gift for you and your baby. Baby massage enhances the connection between baby and caregiver and helps you to understand your baby’s non-verbal language. One of the many benefits of this course is that you will learn a life skill which can be adapted to suit your growing child. I have been thoroughly trained to accommodate adaptations for babies with additional needs, and those born prematurely. Nurturing touch also provides the appropriate stimulation to encourage healthy brain development as backed up by the latest research.
Please feel free to contact me via live chat if you have any questions regarding the course, I look forward to hearing from you.
I also offer private courses which can be hosted from the comfort of your own home and I can also include a session at the end of each private 5 week course for Fathers or Partners.
Kindly note that group sizes are always kept small to ensure each family gets the most out of the course.
