On the Road With Infant Massage

In 1978, Vimala McClure was asked, by childbirth educators to develop a training program, teaching instructors to hold parent/baby courses in infant massage. Vimala took the techniques she learned while working in an orphanage in India for a year, together with ideas from Swedish massage, combined them with principles of reflexology and baby yoga, and developed a parent program that was taught by Instructors. She gave names to the strokes and developed a special massag to help teh relief of colic. In 1986, the International Association of Infant Massage was founded and since 1991 the IAIM has had its international office in Sweden. In 2010 the IAIM is in more than 50 countries. www.iaim.net
