Infant Massage Classes for Parents and Other Caregivers
Parents and other caregivers learn the simple, effective massage routine of the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) and Infant Massage USA with a certified infant massage instructor (CIMI), using their own babies and dolls provided in the class. The class is baby-driven: whether baby decides to sleep, cry, or nurse, one caregiver can still practice with a doll, and learning will still take place. Class will meet for an hour and a half, once a week, for 5 weeks, learning each piece of the routine in the first four sessions, and putting them all together in the fifth.
Parenting–particularly being at home with a baby and other littles–can be isolating and sometimes seem stressful and overwhelming (and I’m saying this from personal experience). Getting out once a week to meet your teacher and/or the rest of a class of families can build support, confidence, community relationships, and joy!

Dates & Location
Group classes may be held several times a year, in locations TBA. Such classes will be posted here or on the Jubilee Massage Therapy Facebook page with a link for online scheduling.
Each class includes 5 sessions. Sessions are 1.5 hours, once a week, for 5 weeks.
Private classes in my home or yours are always available upon request and booking. Contact me here.
Cost covers two caregivers (parents, grandparents, older children, other caregivers, etc.), an illustrated handout of the routine, plus a copy of Infant Massage: A Handbook for Loving Parents by IAIM founder Vimala McClure. Single caregivers are more than welcome, but price does not change if only one parent/caregiver attends.
Cost may differ from above according to materials provided and venue.
