I qualified as a CIMI -Certified Infant Massage Instructor in 2014 with the IAIM – International Association of Infant Massage.
Since then I have been teaching groups of people, as well as providing 1:1 sessions, both in client’s homes and in external venues.
The massage course is run over 5 weeks. During this time you will learn how to give your baby a full body massage, as well as techniques to help ease common infant conditions such as Colic, Constipation, Reflux and Teething Pain.
The classes are beneficial for parents as well as babies, and really help you to get to know your baby, and understand their cues and behavioural states. The sessions are very relaxed, and are led by your baby. There is plenty of time for discussion, we talk about the most common obstacles in the early weeks, such as feeding, sleep, developing routines and wellbeing.
Massage is suitable from birth, and you can easily fit it in to your day when your course with me is finished. You will be provided with a bottle of IAIM approved oil, and a selection of handouts, which you can use to refresh your memory!
I welcome and encourage Dads to join us in the sessions, as it really helps them to form an attachment with their new baby, especially if the baby is being breastfed. I aim to give them confidence in handling their new born, as well as techniques they can use in those difficult moments!
