Karen Mayes
Infant massage instructor trainer

Karen has been a Paediatric Physiotherapist for over 10 years where she has gained a vast amount of experience working with babies and children with disabilities and special needs, and she has a special interest in child development and the treatment of pre term babies.

Karen has 2 children and completed baby massage courses with both of them. After experiencing all of the amazing benefits of baby massage, she was inspired to become a baby massage instructor to enable her to teach and educate others about the benefits of baby massage. Karen trained with To Baby and Beyond a number of years ago and has been running successful courses in the York area for 3 years.

Karen is now combining her physiotherapy expertise and baby massage skills to research the effects of baby massage for pre-term babies, babies with cerebral palsy and babies with Downs Syndrome.
