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 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!
Everyone that works in a NICU should see these webinars.
“So, thank you for setting up this course to give us even more purpose in the NICU. Because of this course, I am able to better advocate for my little patients and their families and to physically provide (through touch, massage, positioning, handling, trigger point therapy, containment and positive touch) all the measures my tiny patients need in order to have a more successful pathway toward discharge.”
Excellent certification. I learned so much about many different aspects of NICU developmental care and massage. I cannot wait to take everything back to my unit and make a difference for our babies!
This course provided foundational information! As a fairly new NICU SLP, I feel more confident in handling and positioning infants. Thank you, Kara Ann!
