Infant Massage Instructor
Certified with IAIM, International Association for Infant Massage, as an Infant Massage Instructor. I set up classes to train parents/caregivers infant/baby/child massage. Classes are for babies from birth to 10 months of age. Pregnant moms can be a part of the classes to learn before baby arrives. Dads are encouraged to take the courses also. Classes are built around the baby. The baby has priority in the class. Environment is relaxed, with breaks when needed for changing, feeding, and taking care of baby’s needs. This is a class where baby and parent can just be themselves. Massaging babies provides an important source of tactile stimulation. Benefits of massage for the baby include: emotional nourishment, loving communication between a parent or caregiver and the baby, regulation of the baby’s primary systems (i.e. respiratory, circulatory, nervous musculature and gastrointestinal reduction of gas and colic allowing the baby to sleep better and help the baby relax and release the tensions of daily stimuli.
