If you have a baby two months old to ten months old you are welcome to register for Infant Massage class by Anna Bonocielli.

The purpose for teaching Infant Massage is to help enhance the connection between infants and their parents. This class is taught over a number of weeks, normally 5 weeks, to give both the parent and baby time to learn and become comfortable with the massage. Each week parents learn strokes for a new part of the body while reviewing strokes from previous classes. So new strokes are learned and previous information is reinforced. We teach a little at a time to ensure that you are confident with every aspect. These classes will show you how relaxation, social interaction, and communication can be achieved through infant massage!
