Learning to teach infant massage opens up a whole new world of opportunities for you both personally and professionally.
You’ll be bringing the fantastic benefits of baby massage to countless families when you start to teach parents and carers. Helping new parents bond with their children or giving them the skills to ease an ailment is an extremely rewarding job. You’ll share your specialist skills with them, and delight in watching the enjoyment it brings to parents and carers, as well as their babies.
Professionally, you can add a new skill to your childcare repertoire or start a new career direction altogether. Whether you introduce baby massage to your current role or start teaching your own classes, you’ll add a new lease of life to your work life.
Adding baby massage to your childcare professional CV can result in being more valued by current or future employers. Starting your own sessions means you have complete flexibility and control over when and how you work. Work-life balance is in your hands!
But why take our word for it when you can hear from those who have done it themselves?
Take a look at what some of our past students say about being a baby massage instructor:
