Infant Massage is a unique and wonderful way to deepen your bond with your child. Regular massage fosters emotional, physical, and mental well-being, calms anxieties, and boosts confidence. Massage could help relieve your gassy baby, improve his/her sleep, and boost his/her brain development.

This workshop is a 5-week class series suitable for expecting parents and parents of infants age 4 weeks to 12 months. We provide practice dolls for expecting parents, as well as for any parent who needs a doll in the event their baby is sleeping, etc.

Course Description:
You will learn simple and effective massage techniques, communicating with your baby through nurturing touch, relaxation techniques for both you and baby, and how to adapt the massage to your growing child/ren. Classes will include discussion and theory and a gentle "baby yoga" stretches as well.

What to expect:
Your baby is welcome to behave in class like a baby! Crying, pooping, nursing, burping, sleeping are all natural and expected. Classes are designed to enable you to participate according to baby's schedule.

Dear Parents, 
If you have recently welcomed a new born into your life, or are expecting, this message is for you! 
Earlier this year I received my certification as an Infant Massage educator with the leading organization of infant massage - Infant Massage USA, a chapter of Infant Massage International, and I am delighted to bring this fantastic program to Verde Touch.
In this workshop I teach you step-by-step full body massage to support you in bonding with, and soothing your baby, as well as incorporate discussing, theory and much more. It is a fun and rewarding class, and the tools and skills you develop will serve you for many years to come. 
This workshop is appropriate for parents and babies 2 weeks to one year old as well as expecting parents. (We have dolls for you to practice on, and take-home handouts). You may attend with or without your parenting partner. Class size is small and intimate, and I guide you every step of the way. 
I hope to see some of you and your baby soon at Verde! 
In touch,
Revital Carroll

The best part of my maternity leave, hands down, was the infant massage class taught by Revital. Revital’s serene and calming spirit made each class a welcome reprieve from the hectic work of raising a newborn. We spent a lot of meaningful time on massage techniques and I loved having my hands on my baby and bonding with her. Revital knew just how to share stories and get us moms bonding with each other by the end of the 5 weeks. I really enjoyed coming to this class and I think my baby did too!
If I were to imagine an infant massage instructor, it would be Revital! She has a calming aura, fascinating background studying massage in India and expertise in the subject. She created a comfortable setting by inviting the group to open up to each other with topics each week and explained the movements clearly. The class and series were more fulfilling than I expected, not only teaching the techniques, but serving as almost a mommy & me bonding class. I’d highly recommend it, especially over a 2-hour workshop that I took several years ago at DayOne.
