Tiny Strides Infant Massage, Wakefield & Barnsley

Are you a mum looking for a gentle, relaxed class to attend?

Baby massage is a great opportunity to equip yourself with a useful mummies toolbox to use from birth and all the way through childhood.

And it’s not just baby massage that we learn.

In addition to ancient baby massage strokes, we learn yoga inspired poses and reflexology in our 5-week courses.


Baby massage supports your babies physical and emotional development and is thought to boost your little one’s immune system!

It can also aid colic, teething pain, improve sleep, aid early learning and improve motor skills.

It’s an ideal class to meet other mums, be nurtured and receive support from a practical, relaxed qualified health visitor, nurse and infant massage instructor.
