IAIM trainings are in-depth and intensive yet also warm and enjoyable. Above, a training breaks for a group photo in Costa Rica.

The International Association of Infant Massage offers instructor trainings around the world. They are led by IAIM Trainers who have completed an extensive and practical, multi-phase education program designed to ensure quality trainings that you will truly enjoy.

IAIM offers the most extensive and comprehensive training for infant massage instructors available in our field. All trainings follow the fifteen point curriculum originated by Vimala McClure and developed by the IAIM Circle of Trainers.

Trainings are generally four days (five days if translated into another language), and include hands on learning with parent-baby classes in a supportive learning environment. Each training covers information about adjusting the teaching to meet the needs of each family and baby, including those born prematurely or with special needs.

If you would like to have a training in your area, please contact your country’s Chapter Representative or International Contact Person. Or contact the IAIM Administrative Office.
