Presentation of Armelle Azzopardi Debost, Baby Massage Instructor:
Armelle Azzopardi Debost is the proud mummy of 3 happy boys aging between 4 years and 4 months old. She has been working as a Qualified Infant Massage Instructor for these past 6 years and is a member of the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM).
IAIM is the largest and most experienced infant massage organization in the world with a presence in more than 50 countries. Founder Vimala McClure’s work, dating back to the 1970s, is supported by current scientific and medical evidence. It has been proven that baby massage relaxes babies, decreases evening crying, facilitates better sleep, relieves stomach-ache and improves the bond between the parents and their baby.
The purpose of the IAIM 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.
Armelle Azzopardi Debost shares these values and believes that every baby deserves respect, tenderness, warmth and a listening heart. It is the reason why she created Hands To Heart in 2010. She works free-lance offering one-to-one or group lessons to the parents willing to learn how to massage their little ones.
