Certified Infant Massage Instructor

Hi, I’m Angela.

Having initially trained as a Nursery Nurse, I qualified as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) in 2004 whilst employed by the NHS as an Early Years Practitioner supporting the Health Visiting teams and Childrens Centres in Durham. I trained with the International Association of Infant Massage, the largest and longest standing association dedicated solely to Infant Massage, providing the world-class gold standard for the training and teaching of Baby Massage, and delivering the most comprehensive courses currently available in the UK.

In 2016 I made the leap into self-employment and set up My Kid Rocks, providing Baby Massage courses for new parents in and around Durham. I have a passion for supporting new parents, so when I was planning my business, I thought carefully about the feedback parents had given me in the past when time and budget restrictions had been an issue. Parents had told me that they wished the classes were a little longer, that they could get a cup of tea, and that were able to spend some time chatting and getting to know the other parents attending. Being a parent myself I know just how important these little things can be, so I made sure my business responded.

Over 5 weeks My Kid Rocks provides 90 minute sessions covering not only practical massage instruction, but also the theory behind what we are doing and why, and each week we have a planned guided discussion to get everyone talking. And of course there’s always tea and cake! I love to nurture my new mums and dads whilst they nurture their little ones!
