Infant Massage July Series
7/12, 7/19, 7/26, 8/2
10am - 11am

Touch empowers compassion, security, and trust. The earlier we can provide a continuous positive touch to an infant, the earlier the attachment creates a long line of constructive effects in the relationship between an infant and those that are caregiving. Infant massage can improve and support sleep, stimulate appetite, body awareness, decrease postpartum depression, latch challenges, help relieve constipation, gas & colic, increase parental bonding, and increase overall bonding and attachment with caregivers.

A new technique is introduced each week, along with weekly emails including support, cool handouts, and more. Infant massage classes are also for grandparents, foster parents and adoptive parents, as well! All supplies plus a few goodies are included.

This is a 4 week series; if for any reason you need to miss a class, a make-up session will be arranged if requested. Class is appropriate for babies 3 weeks old up to pre-crawling.

For sign-up, please click here. For questions, please contact Jessie Bernstein at [email protected]

Pineapple Connections: Gathering for Fertility Hiccups
7pm

Pineapple Connections is a peer to peer "support group" for those dealing with the hiccups of conception. Navigating life while dealing with these struggles can be really challenging, and trying when everyone around you seems to "get it right". Be around others who "get it", and have an idea of what your journey may be like.

This is a safe space for those who have chosen to go through the ART (Assistive Reproductive Technology) route, and for those who have chosen not to. We meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7pm at Indigo Physiotherapy in Roland Park. Plenty of parking, and wheelchair accessible.

Hosted by Jessie Bernstein of Moksha Massage & Wellness. For questions, please contact Jessie at [email protected] You can also find her on Facebook @MokshaSoulMassage.
