IMIS acts as a professional association specifically for students and professionals holding (or studying for) a recognised qualification in infant massage.

We keep members up-to-date with any new research, or general information pertaining to infant massage and child development to ensure that you are always aware of any new developments and recommendations relevant to the teaching of infant massage.

Upon becoming a member of the Infant Massage Information Service you are entitled to the following benefits:

  • Access to the locked members area online
    The members’ area is updated with new research articles, and general interest articles to ensure members are kept up to date. Members can discuss various topics of interest with other students and instructors via our online forum.
  • Certificate of membership
    Your certificate can be used to show that you are aware of the latest information in regards to infant massage. When enquiries come through to the IMIS office from parents or organisations looking for individuals with infant massage training, we recommend that they request to see a qualifying certificate and a certificate of current membership to ensure that you are up to date with current techniques and recommendations.
  • Referrals
    When clinics, parents or organisations contact us to locate someone who is trained to work with parents and demonstrate massage techniques, we can provide referrals to you if you wish. Once you have completed your training a form will be provided which asks if you would like your contact information to be made available.
  • Instructor Support
    IMIS offers ongoing support to instructors and consultants once they are working and utilising their baby massage 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.
