The course will provide the knowledge and skills to integrate infant massage into your existing work/practice or to work independently as an infant massage instructor in group or 1:1 settings.
Infant massage is a powerful tool which has a wide range of benefits including supporting the development of the somatosensory, autonomic and immune systems, reducing hyperbilirubinemia, improving weight gain, improving sleep and reducing maternal anxiety and depression. Using the techniques, you will be able to support babies and their families whether that be in your existing clinical setting or by setting up private massage classes.
Using lessons, instruction videos, knowledge quizzes and practical assessments, the course will provide the knowledge and skills needed to confidently teach infant massage techniques and also discuss the evidence and physiology behind infant massage.
The course provides a refresher for the underpinning theory of infant massage (relevant anatomy and physiology), looks at typical infant development, reviews the researched benefits so that you can have informed discussions with colleagues and gives the practical aspects of teaching.
Who will benefit
The course is suitable for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses and midwives and aims to enable attendees to confidently teach infant massage techniques in a variety of settings.
