Newly established Griffith business Little Rainbow Infant Massage promises to help your babies loosen up, relieve tension and relax.
With benefits ranging from relieving wind, gas, constipation, colic and reflux, these massage techniques are guaranteed to help your baby feel as comfortable and happy as possible.
At least according to Infant Massage Therapist and Owner of Little Rainbow, Carla Nehme who has been working on the business as a passion project project for the last year or two.
"I have been using infant massage techniques ever since I had my second child as I wanted something natural to help calm my children at certain times of the day," Mrs Nehme said.
"As a mum of five I understand how hard it can be to settle a baby, but what they want is touch, if you hold them and touch them with the right technique in the right places with the correct amount of pressure its magic."
Techniques for infant massage are derived from reflexology and swiss massage therapy are techniques that parents will be able to take home with them from the sessions.
"Parents will be able to take these massage techniques home with them to work one on one with their child, calm and relieve them," Mrs Nehme said.
"These techniques are beneficial for both parent and child alike."
Mrs Nehme says that the gentle exercises are 'just magic'.
"We use gentle strokes and make sure we don't push or overstretch the children, it is amazing to see the difference in an infant before and after a massage," Mrs Nehme said.
"It's about building a support network for mothers more than anything, building a safe place for parents and bubs, a place where they can be themselves, let their stress out."
Classes will be held at the Griffith Community Centre and are available in 1:1 sessions and in group classes.
Yoga mats and oil will be provided, parents are just reminded to bring a towel.
And if your young one doesn't want a massage on the day, baby massage dolls are available to be practiced on by parents so they don't miss out.
