Hi everyone. My name is Dasha. I am LMT (licensed massage therapist), CIMT (certified infant massage teacher), CLMT (certified pediatric massage therapist), also certified in prenatal and postnatal massages and infant massages. I speak fluently in Russian and English.
Since the beginning, I have always wanted to help new parents and finally I’ve found a great way. I created a 3 hour course where I teach you how to give massages to your kids with your own hands! In this course you will learn how to improve your baby’s health with massage in the safest way. I will teach you simple techniques so that you can learn to do the best job to support their health. Massage affects all systems of the human body: skeletal (reduces muscle tension and increases nutrient flow to bones), muscular (increases the flow of blood and nutrients to muscles, can increase or decrease muscle tone which helps with hypertonia or hypotonia), digestive (may relieve constipation /gas), respiratory by improving breathing pattern, and the nervous by relaxing and calming the baby.
Massage is one of the absolute best ways to connect with your baby, and enjoy a beautiful bonding experience together. Please join me to spread the love to all the kids around the world and show them what massage can do! Your baby’s health is in your own hands!
