Aga’s Baby Story Massage Taster Class – Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing Event

February 15, 2023 to February 15, 2023 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM


The wonderful Aga Cummins, certified infant massage instructor will lead this wellbeing workshop for parents and babies. Parents will learn ways to bond with their baby in a calm and relaxed way, focusing on nurturing touch and communication. Aga demonstrates her routines using a doll and if your bundle of joy is asleep she usually has a spare doll to practice on. Please wear comfortable clothes that allow flow of movements. Babies should wear garments that allow you to easily access baby’s bare skin as massaging oils will be used. Massage oils will be provided for your session.
