About Matti

Matti是芬蘭語用於新生兒的名字,Matti源自希伯來文『上帝的禮物』。
中文「美地」取自於Matti的諧音,我們相信每個孩子都是上天賜給父母最珍貴的禮物,因此我們也希望所有的孩子能在愛與美地之中一起經歷美妙的時刻。

美地嬰幼兒親子學院Monica老師創立並親自授課。

Monica老師擁有以下合格講師認證:

l 國際嬰幼兒按摩協會(IAIM)合格講師

l 美國寶寶手語時間(Baby Signing Time)合格講師

Monica老師本身擁有兩個可愛的小寶寶,她認為:「寶寶按摩不是一種療程,而是一種親子間建立親密感與依附感的過程。透過親子按摩,對寶寶、家長、家庭、和整個社會都有正向的益處。」此外,透過寶寶手語,不但可以幫助寶寶建立自信心、增強語言發展能力,也有助於建立寶寶與家長之間的信任感與親密感。

About IAIM

IAIM-LOGO

國際嬰幼兒按摩協會(IAIM, International Association of Infant Massage),是一個國際性非營利組織,也是此類組織中最早且最大的,在50個以上的國家設有分會,總會設於瑞典的斯德哥爾摩市。現在,許多醫院也訓練護理人員使用按摩和擁抱技巧來護理早產兒和病童,也提供父母指導以努力促進親子依附感(bonding)和舒緩寶寶的不適。此外,這項憑直覺發展出來,又在數千年人類經驗”實驗室”裏精練的簡易傳統之好處,已經日復一日的為現代科學研究所發揚肯定。

IAIM是由來自瑞典的Vimala McClure 女士所創立,她自1976年投入這份工作。Vimala McClure女士說:「我的孩子現在已經長大了,但是我們嬰兒時期按摩經驗的影響卻未消失,每日的按摩提供了生理上、情感上與精神上的祥和與親密的基礎,而這種祥和與親密一輩子都隨著我們一起。」

協會宗旨:國際嬰幼兒按摩協會(International Association of Infant Massage, IAIM)之任務在於透過訓練、教育及研究,促進親子間愛的觸摸與溝通,使得全世界的父母、照護者及孩子都能被愛、被尊重。

International Association of Infant Massage (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.

IAIM’s work is much more than teaching massage strokes. It includes honoring connections between human beings from the very beginning of life and the unique communication a mother or father has with their baby.

In recent years, there has been an increase in medical and psychological research on IAIM’s capacity to feel connected to each other. The bond babies have with their parents creates confidence, compassion, trust, enthusiasm, a sense of belonging and even mental health for the rest the baby’s life.

The benefits of infant massage truly make a difference in the lives of babies, families and even communities.

IAIM MISSION: 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.
