Mission Statement

This was written by over 100 CIMI’s from different cultures during the first IAIM general assembly held in Florida in 1992.  The goal was to have a universal mission that incorporated Vimala’s vision, that all babies would receive nurturing touch right from the start of their life.

It may be noticed that the word ‘massage’ is not in the mission statement.  Vimala’s massage routine is a CIMI’s main route of promoting nurturing touch, not all babies will receive massage.  Sometimes nurturing touch can be given in alternative ways to massage such as holding, resting hands, containment holds.

The purpose of the

International Association of Infant Massage

is to promote nurturing touch

and communication through training,

education and research

so that parents, caregivers and

children are loved, valued and respected

throughout the world community.
