Baby Massage Instructor

Although massage is as old as mankind, Baby Massage has a much more recent history. It was first introduced in the USA as a tool for parenting in the mid to late 1970’s. However, Baby Massage as been part of some cultures for thousands of years.

Baby Massage is not a trendy phase or fad, it is an ancient art and philosophy that connects the parents / carers deeply to their babies.

This class will teach you how to host and run your own Baby Massage Class along with various techniques that you can teach to parents and carers.

After completion of this class you will be asked to provide 10 case studies. You will only be awarded your certification after you have submitted these case studies and feedback has been given.

As with all of our physical and energy therapies, once you have completed the home study part of the class, before you begin your case studies, you are welcome to book a 'training day' in with us which will be held in Glastonbury, Somerset. The cost of this face-to-face training is free of charge and this is not a pre-requisite of completing the course. If you'd like further information on our training days or wish to book one with us, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.


Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a Certified Diploma which is fully accredited with the IPHM and recognised for insurance purposes by Westminster and Towergate Insurance.

For those who wish to obtain insurance cover to practice their new skills on the public, after you have completed this course, we will give you details on how to go about obtaining insurance through our insurer to ensure you are fully covered.
