The IAIM Infant Massage Program is for parents with babies 0-12 months to learn infant massage from an certified IAIM instructor.  It is a 5 session class where an Instructor will teach you how to use and adapt various massage strokes, use your voice, movement and other forms of communication to help soothe, settle and comfort your baby.

Why 5 sessions?
In each of the five sessions, your IAIM Instructor will take you through a series of different activities that incorporate massage, healthy touch, voice, eye contact and many other interactions.  You and your baby are BOTH students in the class and the baby usually takes a little longer than us adults to adapt, familiarise and accept massage in their lives.  The IAIM Infant Massage Program is run at the pace of the babies in the class.

Also, please do not worry that your baby might be unsettled or squirmy during the class.  ALL babies are welcomed and be themselves! The purpose of the program is not to "force" a baby to have a massage during the sessions, but to give you skills and knowledge that you can use at home and throughout your baby's development.

We do massage WITH a baby, not TO a baby.

 

Baby massage is not a one-way communication from parent to baby. Baby massage creates an intimate, deep bonding between parents & their babies. It is the best way for parents to learn to understand and respond to their baby’s cues accordingly, and the baby will feel loved and respected. And as such, the baby will learn to show her love & respect. What a lovely, healthy cycle!
