The Sensational Baby® workshop, designed by Infant Massage USA, is an innovative 5-week course for parents and caregivers with newborns in their families between the ages of 6 weeks up to an infant’s first independent steps (usually from 10-15 months). Each weekly class combines evidence-based massage routines, current resources about infant development, and topical discussions between parents about the intersection of tradition and best practices in parenthood.

Why invest 5 weeks to learn infant massage?
In our fast paced world, there is still value in going slow. While there are many helpful books, videos, and shorter infant massage courses available to families, none of them can replace the hands-on and thoughtful experience of the relationship created in an extended workshop led by a professionally trained educator. When families choose to invest intention, attention, and time in their relationships, in an accepting and encouraging environment, they have the greatest opportunity to consistently be their best self.
A Sensational Baby® workshop is more than just learning massage strokes. Over five weeks, infants have the opportunity to adjust to increased sensory experiences, families receive individualized support as they explore their parenthood values and beliefs, practice massage strokes with guidance to implement a new routine, and nurture new relationships with other families attending the workshop.
A community based, reflective learning environment is beneficial for creating lifelong habits for adults and infants alike. Beyond the workshop, Sensational Baby® promotes the interconnectedness needed to sustain peaceful communities.
