Research is now showing that baby massage can be extremely beneficial for both mother and baby and is becoming increasingly popular.
This course will teach you to become an Infant Massage Instructor so that you can then hold classes for parents who would like to learn this wonderful skill.
**please note an Instructor certificate will be issued to everyone who successfully completes the course but the FHT accredited certificate can only be issued to those with a level 3 Massage qualification as this is the industry's professional association and not relevant to healthcare professionals.
The aim of this course is to enable therapists to instruct their clients in infant massage techniques - also known as baby massage.
