Why Take a Class?
The easiest way to learn to massage your baby is with the help of an IAIM Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI). The strokes and styles of massage are easier to grasp when demonstrated by our experienced instructors. Pressure, rate, rhythm, the length of the massage, respect, bonding, why babies cry, babies’ body language, relaxation, and parent empowerment are some of the skills and topics you will learn.
Be Confident with Every Aspect of Infant Massage
IAIM instructors teach a little at a time to ensure that you are confident with every aspect. All our instructors teach the same tried and tested IAIM syllabus, although the structure and prices of classes can vary between instructors. Most instructors offer two main types of service: infant massage classes and private instruction.
Classes offer a supportive group environment where parents can share experiences and learn from each other while having fun. A typical IAIM course consists of five sessions of one to one and a half hours duration. Each session is held at weekly intervals to allow you and your baby to absorb all the information and get used to the massage. Group sizes are kept small to ensure personalized attention. The recommended age for group classes is from birth to one.
Many Certified Infant Massage Instructors (CIMIs) offer other services including the option for private classes for individual and special needs. Some instructors also conduct workshops and demonstrations for professional groups and conferences.
