The Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist Course (CPMT) is coming to Hartford, Connecticut. This Accredited 2-day professional training, taught by Certified Pediatric Massage Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy (CCMT), located in the heart of Newington/Hartford.
This course is being offered in association with Connecticut Children’s Medical Center’s Dept of OT/PT (Occupational Therapy/PhysicalTherapy) in conjunction with Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy and Ana Maria Verissimo, MD. Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is developing a Pediatric Integrative Medicine Program with plans to include massage therapy for pediatric patients in this program. The hospital's goal is to provide a strong foundation which will enable growth and sustainability. Training and certification in pediatric massage therapy will be an integral part of this strong foundation.
Connecticut Children's Medical Center prides itself on “Giving children the care they deserve!”
Connecticut Children's Medical Center is dedicated to improving the physical and emotional health of children through family-centered care, research, education and advocacy. We embrace discovery, teamwork, integrity and excellence in all that we do.
At Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy (CCMT) they believe in the transformational power of massage therapy. They also believe that experiencing the life-enhancing effects of massage first hand, and having a deep awareness and understanding of what massage therapy is about, is the foundation for being able to help others through touch. Core to its mission, CCMT strives to provide comprehensive, professional training in a holistic context. They honor the synchrony of mind-body-heart as we support self-care and personal development.
CCMT has been dedicated exclusively to providing massage therapy training since 1980. CCMT has three campuses. The main campus is located in Newington and there is a branch in Westport and one in Groton. Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy’s comprehensive curriculum integrates technique, science and business with extensive hands-on practice. Students in selected programs and campus locations can also participate in clinical education experiences in association with Hartford Hospital, Norwalk Hospital, William W. Backus Hospital and The Spa at Norwich Inn. Selected CCMT courses have been assessed and approved for up to 40 college credits at Charter Oak State College.
While in Hartford, visit the children’s Museum. Educational and entertaining exhibits are the hallmark of this center. Included are a planetarium and a wildlife sanctuary made up of 30 animals, including a mountain lion, a chinchilla and bobcat.
Why not, take a trip back in time and visit the home where Mark Twain wrote several of his famous novels, including "Tom Sawyer," "Huckleberry Finn," and "The Prince and the Pauper."
This Stick-style Victorian mansion was built in 1874 in this famous Nook Farm neighborhood. Guided tours are available in which events from Twain' personal and family life are recounted and the architecture and furnishings are described.

Finally, an accredited pediatric massage certification program for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for pediatric clients. The Liddle Kidz® Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of pediatric massage.
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz® Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to provide pediatric massage.
Any experienced professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child’s needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided pediatric massage education throughout the world.
As a CPMT, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
