I have had experience in going to professional training courses to develop my professional skills in Spain, Portugal, England and Ireland for over the past 10 years and I must say that one of the best courses is the one I took under Gail’s care with the International Association of Infant Massage.She is really knowledgeable about the matter with loads of experience, the study material they supply is great, her teaching skills and her personal support during and after the course is priceless.

All of us who did the course are still in touch with each other and especially with Gail.At the moment my little baby Killian and me are enjoying Gail’s massage classes.

Many thanks Gail for sharing with us your “special gift”. Now we can share with all the mammies and babies when we teach our baby massage classes.
