I have been a physiotherapist for over 10 years and teaching baby massage since I qualified as an IAIM instructor in 2015.
I was inspired to become an instructor when my sister Aisling told me how much she loved the classes and how both she and her daughter benefited from attending.
As a physiotherapist I am very aware of the benefits of massage, and I love my role teaching new parents how to massage and bond with their babies. It is wonderful to see the happiness on a parents faces when their baby responds to them during the classes.
I myself signed up to classes in 2017 with my then new born daughter. She and her toddler best friend ‘met’ at these classes when they were both just over 6 weeks old. The classes facilitated a lasting friendship and this was every bit as valuable as the class.
