Giving your newborn a relaxing massage is a present experience. You will learn baby massage techniques step by step at the right pace for your baby. The gentle and loving baby massage has a positive effect on your baby’s well being. Through the soft touches on baby’s skin, your baby feels loved and cared for. The massage helps your baby to safely bond with you. It has a positive effect on bellyache, restless sleeping and tensions.

“I attended Shantala Babymassage course. Both I and my son enjoyed it very much. The facilities are very cozy what makes it very relaxing for the mother and child. Moreover, we got a lot of useful, essential information/guidance during the classes and in written. I was attending the mixed language course as an expat and Elke took special effort to make sure that I could understand everything (including an English translation of the course booklet). I recommend the place and the teacher!”
