Clara Baloyi

Clara’s background is with the NHS neonatal nursing and Health Visiting.

It was during her health visiting career she came across infant massage. She attended the IAIM 4 days training with Sylvie Hetu in Leeds in 2002. The course was so inspirational and Clara qualified as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) in July 2002 and began her infant massage journey straight away running weekly classes at her local health centre. The benefits of nurturing touch were evident.

After 7 years as a CIMI, Clara embarked on the IAIM Trainer process and qualified in April 2013. She has loved delivering trainings to students from many different walks of life, backgrounds and professions, such as outreach workers, nursery nurses, therapists, those changing careers and parents.
