Beyond Infant Massage, with knowledge comes responsibility to raise the bar and teach more.
After studying Bruce Lipton, PhD, author of The Biology of Belief, the new science of epigenetics, Andrea Kelly, CEO of WINC without borders™, upgraded our curriculum by creating the TRIAD Model™ for healthy infant, child, and family development. Maximize a child’s DNA potential so they may thrive and not just survive while strengthening the family unit, the bonding process, to endure a lifetime. The TRIAD Model™ was endorsed by Dr. Lipton. (Our classes are evidence-based science and practicum, EBS and EBP).
Our "New" CIMI® Level-2 class certifies in both newborn (first six weeks) and infant massage while promoting the TRIAD Model™for healthy infant, child, and family development, encouraging the bonding process to endure a lifetime.
What is Infant Massage?
Infant massage is a step beyond cuddling and may be a fun way to provide an emotional and physical link between parent and infant. It’s a way to communicate and convey affection and a sense of security. It can provide the infant relief from daily stress or discomfort from constipation, trapped gas or teething. Massaging babies for up to 15 minutes a day can help to increase circulation, promote relaxation, aid the digestive and respiratory systems, and relieve muscle tension. Infant massage is also a wonderful way for fathers, siblings, grandparents and other caregivers to be involved with the new baby in a loving way that they both can enjoy.
The practice involves a combination of relaxing strokes, light kneading, and gentle squeezing. It uses the same strokes that generations of parents all over the world have practiced, yet it becomes a rhythmic dance that is uniquely personal between the parent and baby when experienced at home from day-to-day.
