Jolyn is a researcher turned mother, with curiosity remaining in her blood. Being a child with five siblings, she grew up in a big family that helped her to embrace the importance of family togetherness. Being a parent leads her to the journey of nurturing touch with a team of like-minded parents and passionate professionals who believe in giving the best to infants - Touch. Being a certified infant massage instructor and Kind Hands instructor enables her to use the skills learned on her children and impart the knowledge to other parents.

Amy Zhang

Social Media of IAIM SG

Amy has a tight-knit relationship with her parents. Looking back, the nurturing touch her parents brought her up with was a gift of love that lasts a lifetime.​When she got certified as an International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) instructor in 2006 and after having her own baby, she incorporated baby massage as a joyful art into her daughter’s morning routine, like her mum did with her in the past, used her hands to soothe, calm and communicates her love to her baby. She had bonds formed through a nurturing touch that impacted her family deeply. Ms Amy has been the director and founder of Ways Group (Singapore) Pte Ltd since 2015. She has worked in the maternity and infant care industry for over fifteen years. Her passion is to empower families to cultivate a fulfilling, joyful parenting journey and impact lives through quality education and professional training.​ ​
