Your training program covers how to begin work as instructor, including setting up group classes and taking private appointments or home visits with parents, teaching infant massage. We also provide support following your training to assist with any questions or concerns you have while you prepare for, and take your first parent classes or private appointments.

Alternatively, you may choose to use your qualification within your current line of work - a midwife teaching as part of their current position is a good example of this. Many attendees however complete training as a new interest or for additional income which they can gain from a job that they will enjoy and feel passionate about.

Is there a market for infant massage?

Yes. Natural therapies have been increasing in popularity for many years now and infant massage is a part of this industry. Many parents want to learn infant massage even if their baby isn't experiencing any difficulties because they have heard about the benefits massage can provide.

How can Baby Massage help?

Parents who attend infant massage classes or book with you for a private appointment are usually looking for something that will help their baby with problems such as wind, colic, constipation, reflux or sleeping difficulties. Attending an infant massage class can also be a nice way for them to meet other parents, or a private home visit can be the perfect thing for those at home trying to cope with a baby who has colic or reflux.

Can I use my qualifications overseas?

Yes. It is possible to utilise your qualification throughout Australia and overseas should you wish to travel or relocate in the future.

How much do instructors and consultants charge?

There is a recommended fee structure in place that sees instructors and consultants making from $150 to $435 per 1-hour group class (depending on class size) and from $75 - $120 per 1- hour private appointment. With these tuition fees it does not take long to recoup your training program fees.

Here to help

IMIS offers ongoing support to instructors and consultants once they are working and utilising their new qualification.

We feel that it is important for instructors to be able to contact a trainer to discuss questions, recommendations, ideas, or concerns whilst they are working in the industry.

Instructors and consultants are offered the opportunity to keep up-to-date with any new research, or general information pertaining to infant massage and child development via membership with the IMIS. This helps to ensure that they are always aware of any new developments and recommendations relevant to the teaching of infant massage.

IMIS certified instructors also provide support to each other via our online, restricted member area forum (and some members and IMIS state representatives local meetings). Here they can discuss their classes and appointments as well as their promotional activities and ideas and ask questions about each other's experiences. Due the varied professional backgrounds of our members, they provide a wealth of information to each other in a wide range of areas.
