Baby Massage with Jo Kelsall
Welcome to the new home of Cheerful Cherubs Baby Massage.
Did you know that Baby massage is an art, which promotes loving communication between parents and their babies? Touch is one of your babies first senses to develop and it is an essential part of a baby’s development.
Why Baby Massage?
- Promotes sleep for you and your baby
- Boosts immune system
- Strengthens the bond between you and your baby
- Aids digestion
Through your loving bond and nurturing touch you can enjoy some fun-filled quality time with your baby, promoting communication, relaxation and sleep. Baby massage is a lifelong tool for your parenting toolbox, helping you to understand your baby’s emotions and it can even support a natural approach to common infant conditions such as anxiety, teething and constipation. Jo Kelsall founded her baby massage business, Cheerful Cherubs in 2009 but now offers courses etc. under her own name, through Rainbow Wings, instead of Cheerful Cherubs. Based in Worcester, England, Jo provides small friendly classes at various locations. We also offer home visits. Experience the loving art of baby massage.

About our Baby Massage courses
Our small friendly classes are baby-led and last up to one hour. Jo, the founder of Cheerful Cherubs is also your class teacher; she will guide you through a step-by-step routine, which is a carefully balanced combination of massage techniques. These include gentle stretches, soft gymnastics and the principles of yoga, reflexology and not forgetting the power of touch. Baby massage is a beautiful opportunity for your baby to gain reassurance from you and can also reduce postnatal depression (PND).
A number of our clients also attend activity sessions such as music, baby sign or baby sensory; although we do include developmental exercises along with singing and rhyme, the emphasis is on teaching you to massage your baby.
Our aim is for you to leave your first session of baby massage being able to massage the whole of your baby’s body. In the remaining 3 session of the course, you will cover massage in more depth and add on further techniques, until you have completed our carefully prepared Baby Massage programme. In fact as soon as you leave your first session, a simple 5 minute baby massage routine will soon become an everyday part of your life.
During our courses, parents often gain support from each other through topical conversation, such as useful parenting tips, special offers and good places to eat and drink with baby. We encourage you to share the joys and challenges of parenting with each other, promoting peer support amongst fellow group members.
