What is Baby (infant) Massage?

Our 5 week programme is certified by IAIM ( (International Association of Infant Massage). All IAIM infant massage instructors, throughout the world, receive a comprehensive programme of practical and theoretical training. IAIM Certified Instructors of Infant Massage (CIMIs) share the belief that every baby deserves respect, tenderness, warmth and a listening heart. Infant massage is a communication process that parents and babies share which promotes these values.

The nurturing touch that you learn in your infant massage classes can make a difference to your children throughout their life.

Do the classes help me bond with my baby?

Massage may be helpful in encouraging the connection between parent and child as children grow. It may facilitate deeper understanding, integration and the connection with parents or caregivers. Some families have found that massaging their baby is particularly helpful in enhancing the bond with children with special needs.

Massage gives fathers a chance to connect and interact with their child on a deeper level than the usual day-to-day contact might provide. Fathers are always welcome in our baby massage classes particulary on the last class of the course.
