What is a CEIM?
CEIM stands for Certified Educator of Infant Massage. Training for CEIMs includes a 4-day workshop, exam and practicum designed to meet all the standards of the International Association of Infant Massage: www.iaim.net.
Once certified as a CEIM, they are qualified to teach parents and families how to massage their infants in private one-on-one, group, hospital, or agency settings. In addition to teaching private and group classes, some CEIMs also participate in research studies, conduct in-service programs, and present at professional conferences.
The training is designed to prepare educators to help instruct parents how to massage their babies. The
training does not train CEIMs to massage the baby.
