Finally, an advanced specialty training program in pediatric massage for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for babies born prematurely or with complex medial conditions.

With specialized training for babies born early, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
