  6. 6. Infant Massage is about ...<br />• Using the correct pressure, rate, rhythm and stroke technique, facilitated by a certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI)<br />• Learning to understand your baby’s verbal and non-verbal cue’s -<br />What are verbal cues? What tone of voice does your baby use? Are they ‘squealing’ in delight or ‘whining’ because they are tired (examples only).<br />What are non-verbal cues? Pay attention to your baby’s body language, is it positive or negative? Look for openess and willingness to receive massage. ‘No’ body language – eg look at face eg grimacing, yawning; arms eg jerky movements<br />• Respectingyour baby’s communication<br />• Teaches your child what is ‘appropriate positive touch’ and that it is okay to say ‘no’ to massage<br />
  7. 7. Infant Massage... FAQ’s<br />I haven’t heard of infant massage. Where did it originate from?<br />What area’s of my baby’s body do I learn to massage?<br />How long can I massage my baby for?<br />Is there a ‘better’ time of day to massage my baby?<br />What should I massage my baby with?<br />How much pressure should I use when massaging my baby?<br />My baby has colic / reflux, will massage help with this?<br />Answers @ www.idibidikids.com.au/faq.htm also covered in depth in the I.A.I.M international infant massage course.<br />
