    The Infant Massage Therapy and Technique Course is designed specifically for professionals who want to learn current, evidence-based massage strokes for babies 0-12 months of age. In this continuing education class, students will learn safe and appropriate application of massage needed to work hands-on with infants. In-depth information covered includes infant anatomy, contraindications, history & benefits, communication and development. Strokes and techniques are illustrated along with guided application and demonstration. Comprehensive SOAP notes, health history forms, medical releases and feedback forms are provided and explained.

    What makes this Infant Massage course different from others?

    1. This is the only HANDS-ON infant massage class in NJ that allows students to work directly on infants after completing the course (not just to teach parents how to do so).  You will be able to do both upon completion.
    2. It  is the only class that is taught to licensed professionals, not just the general public.
    3. Your tuition includes a 19-20″ Soft Body Doll for use during and after the class (great for demos).
