Baby swim introduces the baby to an ideal environment of warm-water tub within a temperature controlled room.
Benefits for Babies: Each session provides a complete physical workout, strengthening the baby’s heart and lungs, as well as aiding the development of the brain – including stimulation of all five senses. Being in a weightless environment enables babies to exercise their muscles more effectively, also leading to the improvement in co-ordination and balance. Research has shown that due to their excellent muscle control, swimming babies learn to walk earlier. In addition to this, early swimming help babies to become more independent and confident, as well as offering opportunities for babies to respond to the unexpected earlier on.
Benefits for Parents: Warm water relaxes the baby and swimming stimulates their appetite, therefore leading to improved sleeping and eating pattern.
Baby yoga is ideal for strengthening and aiding infant development, particularly the baby’s digestive system as it helps prevent colic and constipation. The positions help relieve any tension in their abdomen, helping babies become more relaxed and thus experience better sleeping patterns. Baby yoga strengthens babies’ muscles, encouraging neural and reflex development.
Baby massage improves blood circulation, helps with digestion, improves skin condition and relieves teeth pains. It also regulates the baby’s sleep/wake cycle, helping them stay relaxed. Baby massage works by encouraging the production of oxytocin, a pain reliever which has a calming effect on the baby. Some studies have shown that massage improves babies’ immunity, and the skin-to-skin contact also stimulates babies’ brain development.
The Royal Hair Parlour is only available on weekends (10:30am- 6:30pm), providing basic haircut services for babies and kids (i.e. trims and fringe cuts). They also offer hairstyling packages using various hairstyling products and techniques, including French pleats, luscious curls, funky colours, hair spikes and slicks, with the bonus addition of tattoos and tiaras to complete the look.
The Little Pamper Salon is a nail bar offering a variety of nail art and designs for little girls to choose from. Using top quality OPI nail products along with other nail accessories, they also provide a mani-pedi spa package with a 4- step soak, scrub, mask and massage process for your little ones to enjoy.
