Infant Massage Classes are facilitated by trained instructors certified by an IAIM Trainer. Instructors must respect the IAIM policies and procedures to remain a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI). Instructors teach a combination of Indian and Swedish Massage strokes, Reflexology and gentle Yoga stretches. The massage strokes encourage circulation and relaxation, the reflexology works on the feet to release tension elsewhere in the body, and the yoga stretches help to develop suppleness in the muscles and joints.
The purpose of IAIM is to promote nurturing touch and communication through training, education and research so that parents, caregivers and children are loved, valued and respected throughout the world community.
