The workshops will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturdays, today to Oct. 7 and Oct. 21 to Nov. 4, and Tuesdays, Nov. 7 to Nov. 21.

Infant massage can improve an infant's sleep, offer relief from the discomfort of gas, colic or congestion, and stimulate a baby's growth and development, according to literature from the hospital.

The cost of each session is $25.

One or both parents may attend, and handouts and oil will be provided.
