What Parents Are Saying About Infant Massage:

“We did 2 in-home sessions with Kathy Miller. She taught us how to do infant massage on our daughter, who was 5.5 months at the time.Our daughter absolutely loves it! She’s so relaxed and calm afterward. It’s a great tool we can use to calm and connect with our daughter – plus other great health benefits too! Very highly recommend checking out Healing with Play, LLC!”   ~Michelle & Jay

“I had a private infant massage class for my son when he was 2 months old. As a newborn, he struggled with reflux, colic,and he was born with a heart defect that required surgery and a lengthy hospital stay. He often had a difficult time calming down, and we were told he needed “positive touch” since he went through some traumatizing experiences in the hospital. Kathy was able to teach me calming techniques and massages that helped soothe and relax my son. It was a great natural way to help him heal, and help us bond with each other since we missed out on a lot of the early cuddling and bonding. I highly recommend Healing with Play for all new moms! ”   ~Elise

“My husband and I participated in Kathy Miller’s Infant Massage classes when our son was 2.5 months old. We found the classes enjoyable and made the techniques our own by incorporating a jazz song into our routine. We use the massage every night before bed.Our son gets so excited every time he hears our “massage song” and squeals in delight during the leg routine. We found infant massage to be a wonderful way to bond with our son. It’s also been a soothing technique to use during the painful teething process-smoothing out the tension in his body from the his teeth emerging. It is fun, relaxing, and enjoyable! I definitely recommend taking one of Kathy’s classes.”   ~Abbey & Chris
