Q & A
"What age is it appropriate to start infant massage?"
You can start at any time. This series is for babies one year and under.

"Why do I need a script from my childs pediatrician for infant massage?"
According to NYS law, Massage Therapy of any kind can only be taught to, taught by, and provided by Licensed Massage Therapists.
Parents can be exempt from this law as long as they have a script from their child's pediatrician approving infant massage.
*This class allows you to perform massage with your child only! Taking this class does NOT give you the legal right to perform massage therapy or teach massage therapy to anyone else.*

"How do I get a script?"
When you email Amanda to register for the class she will respond with an email containing a permission letter that you can e-mail or print and take with you to your childs peditrician.

"Why are there 4 Classes"
Since you are just introducing your baby to massage, we do not want to overwhelm them with too much stimulation at once. We want the experience to be positive. With every class, we will build on a massage routine, getting baby more familiar with massage and giving you time to practice and build confidence.

If you have any other questions or concerns please email Amanda at:
