Neonatal Touch & Massage Certification™ is an exclusively neonatal, one-of-a-kind certification for neonatal healthcare providers. NTMC™ combines a holistic, neonatal and systems theory approach to massage, with an emphasis on families and nurturing opportunities, while elevating the standard of care that neonatal caregivers provide in their daily practice.
I love how Kara Ann and Shannon present the perfect mix of slides, hands-on, and casual but professional conversation. She is open to all questions and very easy to talk to.
Awesome course and experience! This was an excellent educational and certification opportunity. Kara Ann’s knowledge level is exceptional and her passion for working with infants/families in the NICU is contagious. It is obvious that this certification program took a significant amount of time and energy to develop. I, personally, greatly appreciate all of the time and energy that was put into it. I know that the babies and families I work with will also be affected in a positive way. Kara Ann is truly making a difference one therapist at a time, one family at a time, and on infant at a time. I am so moved by Kara Ann’s passion and dedication! I am also very excited about this program and how it has helped me to grow as a neonatal developmental therapist! What a blessing! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Kara Ann!
I absolutely love everything about the neonatal touch and massage from the original certification to even the past two recertification’s I have completed. I really appreciate how each recertification has been more advanced and not just a repeat. I cannot thank all of you enough for the knowledge and growth your certification has enabled me to have as a clinician.
It’s crazy how I’ve taken a variety of courses and conferences trying to gain this knowledge that you put together in one place!! You are the most amazing entrepreneur and you really are going to change the world of NICUs! I believe in you!!
I really liked the videos because it demonstrated implementation of the techniques, location of trigger points, parent teaching/education, positioning and so many other helpful things in addition to the main topic or purpose of the video. The exemplar helped me reflect on what I had accomplished rather than focus on how much more I would like/need to do – which can seem overwhelming sometimes. And, as you said in your comments writing also helped me reflect on what I would like to work on next (in addition to keeping the momentum going on the current projects). Thank you for your work in getting the re-certification program together and for your ongoing support in-between!
