Become a Certified Infant Massage Educator

Our Certified Infant Massage Educator training is relationship focussed – centred on developing healthy bonds and secure attachment between babies and their care givers.

Teaching Infant Massage is a rewarding opportunity, promoting well-being and enhancing bonding between infants and their caregivers. Infant massage assists the growth and development of baby’s body, mind and spirit. In addition it can bring relief to complaints of colic, constipation, respiratory disorders and sleeping difficulties.

You can contribute to this essential communication by becoming a Certified Infant Massage Educator. No previous massage experience is necessary.
