Here’s what some have had to say:
I was very excited and interested to learn the Infant Massage techniques that I could use on my baby. I thought that it would be a great opportunity to maintain contact with other mums from the clinic. I was also very keen to learn some relaxation techniques that would benefit both my baby and I.
Not only did I learn how to do Infant Massage Dympna also showed me how to incorporate relaxation techniques that I found very beneficial for my baby and for me. I also found the information on alternative ways to manage pain and discomfort very specific, practical and it worked too!
Although this course is directed at Infants the topics covered by Dympna include tools that all parents can use to make a difference to their own health and wellbeing too.

Although I had been giving my baby a massage since she was born I attended the workshop out of curiosity and to confirm my personal belief in the importance of massage for babies.
I thought I would just make sure that I was doing Infant Massage correctly, however Dympna showed me so much more than just Infant Massage and what strokes to use and how to do it.
I found the greatest benefit I received by attending this course was the amount of useful advice about the development of my baby and how to interact positively with her on a daily basis.
I would recommend this course to all mums who are at home with a young baby who want to learn much more than just how to massage their baby.

I came to this course with a strong belief in the importance of massage for the wellbeing of mums and especially for infants. I wanted to get specific tips and ideas on how to relax, soothe and calm my baby and those around him (if needed).
Dympna gave me lots of ideas and well presented instructions for specific exercises to help with connectivity of a baby’s brain. I am proud to say that my mother noticed a difference in my son after I introduced the concepts that I had learned.
If you are a new mum or a woman with young children that are anxious and fussy or a mother who is suffering post natal depression I would recommend enrolling in Dympna’s Infant Massage Classes.
I felt that I could not cope, the stress of an unsettled baby was compounded by my 5yr old who had become very demanding in needing my attention. I had read books, searched the internet, sought help from various individuals and then I was introduced to Dympna! After just one consultation I knew she was different, she literally turned chaos into calm without fuss or fanfare.
If you are at the brink of not knowing where to turn to or what to do next, I recommend you contact Dympna. Whether your child is weeks old or five years old, (in my case both) I just found it was becoming increasingly difficult to cope. Dympna was the light at the end of the tunnel, except she met me half way up the tunnel and guided me out.

When you invite Dympna of Creating Balance into your home, you can rest assured that:
Dympna is passionate about promoting calm, confident and content babies and children and
has taught me that this starts in the home. This special lady who is so gentle and sincere
will enrich your relationship with your child forever.

- You will meet not only a person who is a true professional with the utmost
integrity, but most importantly, a person who is first and foremost a mother. It is
important to know that the person you are dealing with is someone who has the life
experiences to compliment her training,
- You will not be criticised. Dympna recognises that no parent or child is the same
and that we all deal with situations differently, and
- You will not be given any band-aid solutions. Rather, Dympna will equip you with
techniques, whether through massage or otherwise, that will bring calm and balance
into your home throughout your parenting years and not just for the short term.
I spent 9 weeks in serious and debilitating pain from sciatica in my lower back
and left leg during pregnancy. I had physiotherapy and massage treatments but without any
Dympna provided pregnancy massage for me in the comfort of my own home. After her incredible
treatment I had the ability to move without pain. I slept well and woke up fresh in the mornings.
She is simply the best.
After the birth of our beautiful son, Dympna again came to my rescue. Dympna shared with my
husband and I a range of techniques that helped calm and relax our son. We also learnt how to
read his body language so that we can understand him and communicate better with him.
I would, without any reservations, give Dympna the highest possible recommendation both for
the effectiveness of her treatment, her teachings and her professionalism in caring for me.

Again Dympna, thankyou for your insightful documentation. What you have done in
these experiences is made a difference in children’s learning and provided opportunities for
children to engage meaningfully in the learning process. By asking and formulating high-level,
open-ended questioning allows these children to participate in the process of learning.
I believe the way you interact with children and document the process shows that you believe
children learn through interactions between thoughts and the environment and that the teacher/adult
and the learner/children interact as equal partners in the learning process as you often express
this throughout your documentation.
This is a skill you have been blessed with Dympna well done!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your very practical advice and for giving
me a different perspective on the dynamics of childhood. I continue to experience the benefits of
your beliefs and it has been very much appreciated. I think that there needs to be more lovely
people in the world that help make others lives that much nicer.
Dympna, thank you for being such a sweet & thoughtful person you really made my day, three
children under 4 can be overwhelming sometimes but you made a difference.
