IMIS acts as a professional association 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 to ensure our students and past students are always aware of new developments and recommendations relevant to the teaching of infant massage.

Being a member of the Infant Massage Information Service has many benefits, incuding:

  • Access to the locked members area online
    The members’ area provides access to research articles and general interest articles to ensure members are kept up to date. 
  • Referrals
    When clinics, parents, area health services and organisations contact the information service looking for a baby massage instructor, the information service can provide referrals to you if you wish. Once you have completed your training, paperwork is provided which asks if you would like your contact information to be made available.
  • Instructor Support
    IMIS offers ongoing support to instructors and consultants while they are 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.
