Healthy Family Living’s programs taught by Certified Instructors, from various personal & professional backgrounds, provide family centered education and preventative health care in their communities and/or professional setting. HFL’s programs support quality of life in relationships with behaviors that science has shown support brain development as well as emotional, behavioral, physical & mental health.

HFL Certified Instructors of Infant Massage (CIIM), enjoy teaching and empowering parents/caregivers in expressing nurturing parenting practices with an emphasis on attuned, interactive massage communication and respectful relationship skills with their babies and children. HFL’s programs and teaching are inclusive of methodology, philosophy and principles that support and empower individuals in emotional attunement and bonding practices.

HFL’s approach may be individualized and continuously supports that Massage and Touch Communication™ is shared with the baby/child, rather than being a technique focus done to the baby. HFL respectfully honors each relationship as unique thus HFL’s programs include adaptations for a variety of individual and distinctive needs, such as developmental ages and the special needs for those facing physical, mental or emotional conditions.

Join us and play in an active role bringing practical education and tools to families that positively influence the opportunity and outcomes of what science has proven…the first years last a lifetime.
