Benefits of baby massage

We ran a baby massage taster class today-here is some information and some beautiful babies (and mums) The benefits of baby massage • Massage is the most natural and instinctive form of caring for the baby. The new-born baby experiences the world through his senses, such as touch, smell, taste, sound and vision. These senses are developing gradually, but from the moment of birth the baby already understands the language of touch. • Massage helps to create a unique bond between the parents and the baby. • Gives confidence for first time parents. • Relaxes both the baby and the mother/father. • Mothers who suffer from post-natal depression feel more positive when they experience their baby’s response to the massage. • Massage helps parents to be aware of their baby’s body and the developmental changes they going through. • Regularly massaged babies develop their motor skills quickly. • The general benefits of massage, such as improved circulation, healthy skin, strong immune system, applies to the baby massage as well. • As the baby relaxes during the massage his muscles relax which in return can help easing colic pain and constipation. Baby massage is highly therapeutic. It can help with several ailments throughout early childhood.

Summer Back Bends Ibiza

I have to take yoga assists where I can. On holiday in Ibiza earlier this summer my husband was recruited to help me with my "dropping back". He is not a yoga teacher, but as an osteopath with an MSc in Sports Science/Sports medicine, he has an excellent understanding of the body. It was a bit scary but I figured that he more than anyone was not going to drop me on my head ;-)

New Yoga Studio in Putney

originally uploaded by

Here is a little preview of my yoga space which will open in early July. I will be adding lots of new classes to my timetable and a few new teachers will be joining me to support the ever-growing yoga community.

I will be working alongside osteopaths and physiotherapists at The Putney Clinic of physical therapy. On site there will be 25 doctors and MRI imaging; so a real East meets West yoga studio, just like I always wanted.

The PinkPower Walk 20011

What a fantastic day we had at yesterday's PinkPower Walk event. The 16 mile walk was the 8th event we have held.

To date, more than three quaters of a million pounds have been raised for two Breast Cancer charities: Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the Caron Keating Foundation.

Caron Keating was a TV presenter and mum to two young boys when she died at the age of 40 from Breast Cancer.

Over the past eight years of being together, the team have all had personal experiences of friends and loved ones being affected by this disease. While sat around a kitchen table planning the event, there has been much laughter and some tears shed. So as the blisters start to fade and the money raised is put to good use, we are meeting to start planning 2012.

I'm so proud to be a part of this event and am completely humbled by the participators, who all have their own story to tell.

I would like to say a big thank to all volunteers, but especially my husband and his dedicated team at The Putney Clinic who provided well earned massage / physical therapy at the finish line.
