Schreiber Pediatric introduces infant massage classes

(LANCASTER, Pa.) — Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center will begin offering infant massage classes under the direction of Becky Smith, an occupational pediatric therapist at Schreiber and a certified infant massage instructor. The five-week classes will be held Monday mornings, and the first set of classes will begin Jan. 26 at Wonder Kids Medical Daycare, 647 E. Roseville Road, Lancaster. The second five-week session will begin April 6 and will be held at Parish Resource Center, 633 Community Way, Lancaster.
Infant massage offers a range of benefits for babies, from stronger bonding and attachment to improved sleep and language development. Parents benefit, too, as massage can decrease post-natal depression for mothers and promote early involvement for fathers. Classes are for parents and their children ages birth to 12 months developmentally.
Smith is certified with the International Association of Infant Massage. Classes will run from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. and will cost $75.
