This course is open to qualified massage therapists, midwives, health visitors & qualified nursery nurses.

The aim of this course is to enable therapists to instruct their clients in infant massage techniques - also known as baby massage. Successful completion will allow you to teach mums, dads or carers how to safely massage their babies on a one to one or to run small groups by demonstrating the techniques on an Infant Massage doll. This is a great addition to your therapy repertoire as it is both deeply rewarding and far less strain on your body.

We will cover:

  • contraindications
  • Benefits of Infant Massage/baby massage
  • Massage techniques both basic and advanced
  • Specific techniques to aid ailments such as colic
  • We will discuss massage and children with disabilities

Students will be required to complete two case studies between day 1 and day 2 - so you will need a couple of willing volunteers! it is anticipated that this will take between 5-6 hours of your time. In addition to therapists, this course has been much sought after by midwives and health visitors. You will need a baby-size doll or The Infant Massage doll to attend - please contact us for massage doll suppliers details.
