Portland, Oregon – February 29 – March 1, 2024 – CIMI® – Diana Moore, Licensed Trainer

February 29 @ 8:00 am - March 1 @ 5:00 pm PST


Certified Infant Massage Instructor Training CIMI®

Holiday Inn/PDX


Through our comprehensive training, participants are given the skills they need to guide/instruct their parents/primary caregivers about The Loving Touch® Method© of Massage with their newborns/children through a doll demonstration approach. This is a parent-delivered activity. The goal is to reinforce and empower parents/caregivers to have quality hands-on contact with their children which improves the parent/child bonding/attachment connection. Our certification training is presented through PowerPoints/Keynotes, lectures, audio-visual aids, shared discussions, and hands-on learning with dolls. There will be a live demonstration lab/or Zoom session with parents and their newborns each day of the training for more in-depth instruction and practical experience.

The Post-Practicum Exam portion following the training to complete certification is accomplished through our “new online” Open-Book exam, instructing The Loving Touch® Method© of massage to four families with infants/children, parent/infant observational write-ups, and parent feedback evaluations from each family.  Participants completing the Post-Practicum Exam and successfully passing will achieve their Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI®) Certification.  Participants are given a 2-month timeline to complete the Exam process.  An exam extension may be approved on an individual request.

Graduates become a part of the International Registry of CIMI® through the International Loving Touch Foundation, Inc. and have full access to the MY CIMI® portal online with materials and resources.  Read more about Becoming a CIMI®.
