In May 2016, Sarah Nottingham, RMT completed an infant massage workshop hosted by Dr. Tiffany Field at the Touch Research Institute within the University of Miami.  This unique workshop took place in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Holz Childrens Hospital where Sarah along with other massage therapists were taught massage therapy specifically for preterm infants. Massage therapy goals within the NICU include reducing the effects of negative touch while being hospitalized and stimulating digestion for greater weight gain, thereby reducing length of stay in the hospital. In October 2016, Sarah furthered her studies in infant massage by completing a certificate course with Tina Allen of Liddle Kidz to become a Certified Infant Massage Teacher.  This workshop provides a foundation in providing instructional classes to parents on how to massage their baby.
