Having had 3 years’ experience in teaching infant massage along with the backing of my 40 year nursing career, I can confidently say am your Paediatric Touch Specialist.


If your baby has issues with sleeping, trouble with wind, colic, constipation or even reflux, you need to book an Infant Massage Course with Peek-a-Boo Infant Massage, so we can assist in getting the problems sorted. For children with Special needs and parents with twins etc I offer private sessions directed at their unique issues.


If you massage your baby, even for a short time, daily using the instructions you will learn, your little one will benefit by gaining relief. Along the way your child and yourself will gain an emotional dance which will be with you each for life.

Infant Massage


Sleeping problems - your baby requires to learn the art of sleep which doesn’t come naturally. By introducing baby massage, you will help your baby to relax & feel safe firstly. The effect of touch on baby’s skin creates the release of all the happy hormones, one of which is Melatonin. This is our body’s natural sleeping assistant. Over time, your baby will begin to sleep longer and deeper.

Crying – so sad when you experience your baby crying excessively or at all. Try massaging baby giving a sense of comfort and  to understand that you are aware baby is uncomfortable. Endorphins are released during any massage on your baby’s skin, which will help relieve pain.

Constipation, wind, colic & reflux - if crying is due to wind, colic or constipation & even reflux, you will learn a sequence of massage strokes which will enhance the activity of the vagal nerve helping the bowel to release such a painful build up. Come to the course to gain this sequence to help you and your baby.
