What people are saying about our baby massage training:

Over the years we’ve had some great feedback about our training from teachers, parents and childcare professionals.  Here are just a few of the wonderful comments we’ve received:

“The course was fantastic and expertly delivered! It was a great experience and I found it particularly useful to work with parents and their babies as part of the training.  I now feel thoroughly prepared to deliver my own classes and incorporate it into the work I do as an academic”

Dr Chris Barnes

“An amazing four days! The trainer is an expert on posivite feedback, never criticises but uses methods to inspire her students…”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 day training with Kate.  It was about so much more than just baby massage.  She encouraged us and empowered us.  I was really inspired!”

Mum, Edinburgh

“Both trainers were creative, dedicated, passionate, caring, imaginative, resourceful and determined!”

Kleio Kallinikov

“The course was educational and interactive with hands on learning and practice – I loved it! I felt very supported, validated and included as well as guided by a beautiful soul in Kate”



“I thought it was just going to be about massaging a baby!  Oh boy was I wrong!  It was so interesting and I absolutely loved it.  I really enjoyed being with a really good group of ladies and of course with our tutor, who was amazing”


“The course exceeded my expectations! I feel thoroughly prepared to facilitate and lead infant massage classes and have been empowered and inspired to do so. A fantastic trainer!”

Complementary Practitioner, Edinburgh

“This is the first course I have attended as a wheelchair user with additional needs where I have felt fully welcomed, accepted and safe within the training environment. Access to the venue was great and the additional support and adjustments made by our trainer Kate allowed me to successfully complete the course.

It is wonderful to know that people with disabilities or additional needs are so well supported within this organisation.

Kate our trainer was inspirational and it has been a privilege to learn from her. I have just completed the 4-day course and am already wanting to attend more courses run by Kate as I know that I will be well looked after and fully supported.

I would urge anybody who feels their disability may prevent them from undertaking this training to contact Kate to discuss your individual needs, as from personal experience I can confirm that she will do everything in her power to support you.”

Cris Wheeler

Senior Practitioner, Herts Adoption Service

“The course exceeded my expectations and needs.  I felt extremely supported by Kate, our trainer, who had the ‘aura of a mother’!  Please please never stop!”

“The course exceeded my expectations – it was inspiring.  I can honestly there wasn’t one thing I didn’t enjoy.  Thank you Kate – I thoroughly enjoyed every minute…”

Karen Holden


“The training has given me a new technique to show parents that colic/wind can be dealt with through massage rather than medication.  Training and our trainer Kate were brilliant. Kate was very patient and made us all feel confident to go out and learn new skills”

Family Support Worker, Braintree

“In just four days I have been given the knowledge and skills to really help families.  I feel confident, inspired and ready to bring massage to as many families as possible.  I did not expect to feel such passion for something in such little time – thank you Kate!”

Gymboree Director, Edinburgh

“I personally feel that the IAIM infant massage classes should be offered as a routine part of the postnatal process – they should be available to every mum as standard…”

Linda Pollock


“A significantly greater number of mothers who attended baby massage classes showed a clinical reduction in their scores on the depression questionnaire…”

Sir Richard Bowlby

Patron of IAIM UK

“Kate made me feel safe in the environment in order to learn.  She has a genuine passion for infant massage which is infectious. I felt it was ok to make mistakes and she supported me in my learning rather than dwell on them.”
