The Certified Infant Massage Teacher Course (CIMT) is coming to Madison, Wisconsin. This Accredited 3-day professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at Lakeside School of Massage Therapy.
Madison’s long and esteemed reputation as a “green” destination stems from the city’s dedication to protecting and maintaining its green space.
In the City of Madison alone, you can find more than 6,000 acres of parkland, including 260 parks and 14 conservation parks! Dane County’s more than 150 miles of bike trails also keep the area easy to traverse without the creation of fuel emissions.
The Madison who lent his name to Wisconsin's capital was none other than James Madison, fourth president of the United States. In Wisconsin's infancy, federal district judge James Doty was angling for Madison to be the state's capital, even though there was no settlement at the time. Doty went so far as to design an intended city and propose it to officials, naming particular streets after statesmen who signed the Constitution. Ultimately, his strategy worked, and today, there's even a street that bears his own name.
In Madison, a must visit is State Street. A unique place in downtown Madison alive with activity every day of the week and featuring block after block of specialty shops, art galleries, gift stores, women's boutiques, ethnic shops, theaters, museums, restaurants and outdoor sidewalk cafes.
If you’re looking to spend quality time with your children, the Children’s Museum is the place! Consistently rated a Madison favorite, the Children’s Museum is located on the first block of State Street just steps away from the historic Capitol.
Linking the Capitol Square with the University of Wisconsin campus, State Street is a shopper's paradise. State Street is a pedestrian mall lined with over 200 unique shops and specialty stores featuring books, CD's, jewelry, gifts, arts, crafts, college apparel, sporting goods, women's fashions, specialty foods and much more. You can even find bicycles, army gear, hats, eyeglasses, cigars, chocolate and ice cream. For the fun little gift or that really special item, there really is something for everyone on State Street!
Madison has often been referred to as having more restaurants per capita than any other American city.

In 1983, music producers Butch Vig and Steve Marker set up a recording studio called Smart Studios to produce local bands. Located on East Washington Avenue in Madison, the studio became famous for producing artists such as Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Butch Vig’s own band, Garbage. In fact, the version of Nirvana’s song "Polly" that appears on their album Nevermind was recorded there.
Finally, an accredited infant massage certification program for professionals, caregivers and those wanting to begin a new career in the wonderful world of infant massage. The Liddle Kidz Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of infant 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 become a professional infant massage teacher.
Any experienced infant massage teacher will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a baby from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a families needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided infant massage education throughout the world.
As a CIMT, you have the special opportunity to impact an infant and their family for a lifetime.
