Geraldine Quain

Geraldine is a physio-led pilates instructor as well as a baby massage instructor. She offers virtual, in-home, or location based sessions at St.James Centre, Balham SW128EW & Kalos Centre Balham SW128JL.

I have enjoyed over 15 years in the field of physiotherapy and have been teaching baby massage since I qualified as an IAIM instructor in 2015.

I was inspired to become an instructor when my sister Aisling told me how much she loved baby massage and how both she and her daughter benefited from attending a baby massage course.

As a physiotherapist I am very aware of the benefits of massage, and I love my role teaching new parents how to massage and bond with their babies. It is wonderful to see the happiness on a parents faces when their baby responds to them during group or individual sessions. I love my dual role as I often discuss posture, breathing, deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles during the course so parents can think of themselves as well as their babies during the sessions.

I myself signed up to a baby massage course in 2017 with my then newborn daughter. She and her toddler best friend ‘met’ at these classes when they were both just over 6 weeks old. The classes facilitated a lasting friendship between his mum and myself and this was every bit as valuable to me as a new mum. I love when I bump into parents from courses who are still catching up with each other long after the course has finished.

Whichever you choose you will learn a full body massage routine for your baby. Each week we focus on a different area of the body as well as repeating the strokes and techniques from previous weeks to build your confidence at massaging your baby. You will be learning a combination of Indian massage, Swedish massage, yoga and reflexology techniques. These will provide you with the practical skills to help relieve trapped wind, blocked sinuses and teething pain and can improve your babies sleep and digestion. You also enjoy some protected time for bonding and communicating with your baby through nurturing touch.
