Baby Massage Instruction Course Overview

The aim of this course is to enable therapists, midwives, nursery nurses how to instruct others in this wonderful art. Successful completion of this course will mean candidates will be able to run their own group classes or one to one sessions with parents and their babies.

Baby Massage is an art which encourages loving communication between a parent and their child. Massage for Babies has grown in popularity in recent years with a greater emphasis being placed on the importance of physical bonding between parents and their baby.

It is, therefore, not surprising that baby massage instruction classes are becoming a regular feature in GP surgeries and health clinics, as well as in the community.

Learning to instruct parents how to massage their babies is a special skill and can be a very fulfilling and rewarding experience.
