This series of five Saturday morning classes, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. will begin Sept. 7.

The class is free, but pre-registration and commitment to attend all five classes are required.

“Baby Massage” is a series of four classes for parents of infants, newborn to crawling. Taught by long-time certified massage instructor and nursing professional Linda MacKenzie Parks, the class provides a myriad of positive impacts for babies and parents including bonding and attachment, relaxation, and verbal and non-verbal communication.
