Infant Massage Classes

Touch can have a profound impact on the relationship between you and your baby. We are excited to offer infant massage classes led by Keishla Gonzalez Acosta, a physical therapist with over 10 years of pediatric experience. These classes are for parents or caregivers of infants and babies who have not yet learned to crawl. 

 

Infant massage promotes bonding and provides numerous health benefits for your baby, including:

 

  • Encourages physical development and mobility

  • Helps strengthen your baby's immune responses

  • Aids in better sleep patterns and relaxation

  • Supports your baby's ability to process sensory information

  • Improves digestion and your baby’s overall well-being
