Baby Massage Classes

Jumbos is excited to bring you our wonderful baby massage classes...

Baby Massage is FUN ... and it is EASY to learn from our qualified instructors.

You'll learn how to soothe your baby, relieve tummy upsets, read and respond to cues and much, much more ...

Massage is beneficial for children of any age, however the earlier you incorporate massage into your baby's life, the sooner they start to receive the benefits. At Jumbos we adapt classes to suit your child whether they are newborn, crawling or fully mobile.

Benefits of Baby Massage

The benefits of infant massage are more far-reaching than they may at first seem. For an infant, massage is much more than a relaxing experience or a type of physical therapy.

It helps the baby's internal functions work smoothly, release tension, and helps the baby to feel securely loved and cherished, a benefit that will remain with your baby for life.

  • Nurtures parent/child bonding
  • helps baby settle better and calm themselves more easily
  • gives mums tools to use when their baby is stressed
  • strengthens the immune system
  • fosters intimacy between fathers and babies
  • allows working parents quality, valuable time with their baby
  • aids in the recovery of post natal depression


All classes are held at Jumbos Playland in our private and comfortable air-conditioned/heated party rooms.

If your baby was born with a disability, you and your baby can benefit enormously by learning baby massage. For further information, please contact us.

Colic Relief Single Session

Baby massage is one of the most effective ways to help with baby colic.

Massage relaxes the muscles of your child adequately, and therefore relieve any spasm or contractions in the stomach.

New mothers can become desperate to find a way to get the sleep their babies and themselves need. Infant massage is a key tool to help your baby sleep soundly and can also be used beyond the infant stage to help an older child sleep.

This 45 minute class focuses on techniques to relieve the discomfort for babies suffering;

  • reflux
  • colic
  • constipation
  • wind and congestion

In addition to providing pain relief for the baby, the techniques taught in this class may also reduce the chances of these conditions recurring.

Mothers will also be taught simple relaxation techniques to help their baby sleep. These techniques are a perfect antidote for a sleep deprived baby.

Length of Class: This is a one off class and lasts for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Cost: The cost for Colic Relief Single Session is $29. This cost is not per baby (e.g. if a parent has twins, they will only need to pay $29) and both parents may attend class.

Intimate One-on-One Class: $165 per couple for 45 minute class

What is Included: Tuition, massage oil for the class and parent "cheat-sheet" hand-out.

All prices include GST.

Massage oil will be provided for each class or your can purchase your own online or at Jumbos' reception.

Mothers Group or PlayGroup Private Class: Why not organise a "private" class for your group? Minimum of 4 babies and parents @ $29 and maximum cost of $220 per private group.
