Celebrating the International Day of Infant Massage 2017

The second annual International Day of Infant Massage and Nurturing Touch in honor of our work and our founder Vimala McClure is coming up this June 7th. In honor of this, I have a fun challenge for everyone.

We want our members and anyone who wishes to engage and share the excitement about infant massage enough to get involved in a fun activity that raises awareness of the power and need for connecting and bonding. We can all do this by promoting acts that elevate the message of nurturing and bonding, videos and photographs that can be uploaded or shared in social media—as a “challenge” to a friend, challenging them to participate and respond in kind. Not only will this create a 2017 groundswell for the organization, but it can help to show what infant massage DOES.
