Parent Infant Massage Classes

Infant massage classes are a fun way to learn how to soothe your baby, relieve tummy upsets, learn to understand your baby’s non-verbal language and much, much more.

Our classes are informal, relaxed, and small enough to ensure you are given the personal attention you need. Join the tens of thousands of parents and professionals worldwide who have trained with the International Association of Infant Massage and experience the joy and benefits that infant massage has to offer!

Classes offer a supportive group environment where parents can share experiences and learn from each other while having fun. A typical IAIM course consists of five sessions lasting 60 to 90 minutes. Each session is held at weekly intervals to allow you and your baby to absorb all the information and adapt to the feeling of massage. Group sizes are kept small to ensure personalized attention.  The recommended age for group classes is from birth to one.

Many Certified Infant Massage Instructors (CIMIs) offer other services including the option for private classes for parents and babies with individual needs.
