Baby Massage Training - Refresher

Course Provider: Childways


Learning baby massage is a rich and rewarding experience, and watching a baby enjoy receiving a massage is priceless. That’s why when you attend our baby massage course we’ll teach you everything you need to know to share the benefits of nurturing touch. This course is accredited by The Royal College of Midwives, Embody CThA (Complementary Therapy Association) and the Independent Professional Therapists International (IPTI) – an Association for alternative, complementary and health and beauty therapists. When you train with us, you’ll leave the course with a variety of baby massage techniques to use personally or as part of your work with children and families.
