Neonatal Touch & Massage Certification® (NTMC) is an exclusively neonatal, advanced, 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. This certification is not just a test you study for, but a process to advance both your knowledge AND skill development in Neuroprotective, Developmental, Family-Integrated Care!
NTMC was developed with a 3-fold purpose: to help NICU babies, families, and staff. It’s all about maximizing positive long-term development of the infant and giving families the opportunity and tools to provide care for and bond with their infant.
NTMC includes both On-Line Education and Hands-On Training along with continuing education hours, professional credentials, and expertise in Neuroprotective, Developmental, Family-Integrated Care. Nurses and Therapists (OT, PT, SLP) complete the ~19 hours of On-Line Education and Day 1 of Hands-On Training, while Therapists (OT, PT, SLP) also attend the Day 2 Hands-On Training. The certification fee covers both the NTMC On-Line Education and Hands-On Training.
