Your Qualification

We offer two certificate qualifications for you to choose from.

Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI)

This course covers how to teach massage for infants, older children, children with special needs, and touch therapy for premature infants.

There are no prerequisites for this certificate; training begins at basic level, so all are welcome.

You will learn about the massage techniques themselves, about related topics, such as what oil should be used for massage time, when, and how long to massage for, infant body language during massage, information on how to arrange and run group classes, private appointments and much more.

Paediatric Massage Consultant (PMC)

This high level qualification is exclusive to Infant Massage Information Service

In addition to working with families as an instructor, Consultants can provide presentations on infant massage to professional groups (hospital staff, natural therapists, early childhood centre staff, etc). This ensures that up to date information is available on infant massage to a wide range of health professionals who work directly with new families.

Previous experience, qualifications or training is essential. If you have previous experience, qualifications or training that relates to infant massage, such as a massage certificate or diploma, nursing background, training in physiotherapy or other qualifications that relate to infant massage, you can apply for the Paediatric Massage Consultant (PMC) qualification.
