A little bit about me

Hi. I am Dr. Rita O'Flynn. I trained in baby massage and baby yoga over ten years ago.  I was inspired by the experience of going to baby massage classes just after my first child was born.  I was taught by Peter Walker of the International School of Developmental Baby Massage and Movement.

I initially trained as a scientist and have a degree in Biotechnology and a PhD in Molecular microbiology from King’s College London, and worked for many years as an academic research scientist.  Later, I worked at Imperial College School of Medicine, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, in the department of Academic Paediatrics.  Here I was doing research on the bacteria that cause meningitis in the hope that one day we would find a vaccine for this life threatening disease. However, the onset of motherhood influenced my decision to start something completely different.

It all started just after the birth of my son. I took him to baby massage classes and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  I was completely inspired by the whole process and even though my son did not enjoy it immediately, he soon grew to love it.  I continued with baby massage and baby yoga classes until he was an active crawler.  It was really the only activity that we could do together where I felt he was truly benefitting. I then found out about Peter Walker and his course and trained almost immediately.

For me, and as you will also discover, baby massage and baby yoga is a rewarding experience which I hope you will treasure forever. In years to come it is one of those special things that you will remember having done with your baby. You may even enjoy doing it with your grandchildren!
