Baby Massage Instructors Course
This Baby Massage Teacher Course will provide you with the knowledge required to teach baby massage to parents and guardians for use on their own children using a demonstration doll.
You will also gain knowledge of business practice, health, safety and hygiene related to this field. The aim of this course is to provide you with the skills and understanding to teach parents and guardians how to apply baby massage and also in certain circumstances to apply baby massage in the presence of parents/guardians, with their consent. Instructing parents/guardians how to provide baby massage for their own children is preferred.
