Baby massage classes

Massage Matters baby massage classes offer a warm, welcoming and tranquil space for you and your baby to relax. You will also unwind and spend quality-focused time together, whilst learning a life-long parenting skill that you can do anywhere, at any time.

Relax and enjoy

Only parents massage their babies and classes are adaptable, flexible and totally baby-led. Babies are welcomed to be babies and often direct the flow of the class. All massage instructions are repeated each week, as well as emailed on a weekly basis.

The five-week baby massage classes involve...

The IAIM was founded by Vimala McClure in 1986. Vimala McClure developed a multi-integrated full-body baby massage routine from Indian and Swedish massage traditions. It also includes principles from yoga and reflexology to promote interaction, stimulation, relaxation and relief.

​Courses are held over five consecutive weekly 90-minutes classes, and designed for babies from birth to crawling.

To ensure a imitate class, there is a maximum of 8 and a minimum of 3 mums.


The classes are held in my home in Haddington, East Lothian. There is also ample free, on-street parking and is within a minutes walk from the nearest bus stop.

Over the course we cover:

  • Learning baby-led massage strokes for your baby’s legs, feet, stomach, chest, arms, hands, face and back.
  • A short routine to relieve colic, wind and constipation
  • Gentle Movements, based on the principals of Yoga
  • Time for reflection and discussion around a variety of related topics. These include oils, best time for massage, the growing child, listening to babies and calming.​
  • Meet new friends and have a chat over home baked cake!
  • The opportunity to take time-out, unwind and spend quality-time with your baby.


In order to book a place on a course I require full payment.

Payment can be PayPal, cheques or by BACS. I will provisionally reserve you a place up to 10 days before the course starts, after that I will readvertise the place, if payment hasn’t been received.

Please contact me for Paypal or bank details and I will confirm receipt by email.

Multiple births

If you have twins/ triplets then the price of the course is the same. If you wish to bring another person each week to help, then it would be an additional £30 on top of the course fee.

NCT & Antenatal Groups

If your NCT or antenatal class would like an exclusive group, then I would be happy to host one in my home, for you (minimum number is 5 mums).

These would be available on a first come first serve basis, on a Monday at 12.15pm.

Cost: £65 per mum.
