Q. If I choose one of the programs that includes Skype training, how does that work?
A. IMC will email you detailed instructions, our Instructors may be able to FaceTime or Skype. It is best to have a strong internet connection, quiet environment, and good lighting. The sessions are a wonderful opportunity to ask questions about specific challenges or practice a session with an Instructor.
Q. Will I be able to massage babies with this Certificate?
A. Simply put, this Certification does not allow you to touch infants. You teach infant massage to others showing techniques on a demonstration doll. If you are a licensed or certified professional who is allowed to massage babies (massage therapists, nurses, etc.) you are able to massage infants directly based on that credential. We discuss this in more detail within the Introduction Chapter, please review to understand when this is permissible.

A. We offer our program to students and professionals within organizations. If you would like to schedule a workshop please contact us. We are happy to coordinate a workshop in most professional settings.
