Infant & Pregnancy Massage in Lee’s Summit, MO
One of the most fundamental ways to connect with a newborn is through touch. It is the first sense developed in utero and the last to leave at the time of death. It is the only sense without which, we cannot survive.
Christina Kartsonis-Woltkamp serves as program director for Infant Massage of Kansas City. Christina is a certified educator through Infant Massage USA. She has organized two types of affordable parenting education programs in Infant Massage that include classroom style or private in-home instruction.
Whether you are an expectant parent, or your baby is already born and you have a desire to learn and practice Infant Massage with your child, we have a forum available for you to learn the techniques developed from the founding organization of Infant Massage.
The massage techniques you will learn are based off century-old practices from the Indian culture, Swedish massage, principles of yoga and reflexology. Handouts, guided demonstrations and a bottle of massage oil are provided.

Infant Massage Classes in convenient Lee’s Summit, Overland Park & Leawood locations (3-1 hour classroom sessions followed by 1 in-home visit) $75.00.
Class size is limited to 5 families or fewer. Instruction on infant massage techniques can easily be learned with your baby or with a doll; preferably 21 inches or longer. Expectant families often take advantage of their available time prior to baby’s arrival by enrolling in one of our 5-week courses. The fifth session is an in-home visit with baby. This final session is designed to “put it all together” and for Christina to answer any questions you may have.
In-home (private) Infant Massage Instruction
4-1 hr sessions $30 per session (A 5th session is recommended later on when baby becomes mobile)
Juggling a new baby’s schedule along with your own can be challenging and overwhelming for parents; particularly if this is your first child. This is why Christina offers affordable In-home Infant Massage instruction metro-wide. She will work with you to arrange a convenient time focused around your baby’s schedule. Often, in-home visits are arranged so that Dad can also participate.
“I loved the individual attention Christina was able to provide us and it was so much easier having her come to us than for me to have to bundle up my baby and head to a class.”
