This was the most meaningful, inspiring, and thought provoking training I have ever attended. The information shared enabled me to see and experience the powerful connection between gentle touch, love, harmony and peace throughout the whole spectrum of life. Our world can be changed, one family at a time, starting with infants!
I'm leaving with a fuller heart and refreshed spirit...I've nurtured myself and been nurtured by others. My experience will make me a better mother, grandmother, doula and massage therapist.

This is the best training experience I have ever had, without exception

This is a must for providers in early year professions but more over it would be wonderful if it was required to be a person in humankind.

By helping parents and caregivers cue into their babies through touch communication, one baby at a time, we are truly nurturing that infant and adult and making our world safer for both through developing a stronger sense of self, a more loving family, a more caring community, both locally and globally by the infants in my care over the years has sincerely, and deeply, re-enforced the power and the beauty of touch communication. The solid foundation of infant massage, strongly based on the principles of infant development and communication as well as human philosophy, provides an excellent framework for working with parents regardless of their background and experience.

The training surpassed my expectations. I had no idea how huge this was and I've only hit the tip of the iceburg... I look forward to teaching and sharing this beautiful dance with my clients, friends and family.

I work with blind and visually impaired children, under the age of 5 and t heir families. If I go into their homes and can offer them nothing else other than infant message, I know I’ve done enough

Kalena is a truly a master teacher. She has a gift for the work she does, and the way in which she inspires others. I would recommend this training highly to anyone who has a true commitment to enhancing the relationships between infants and their parents (caregivers).

Kalena is a pure, honest and brilliant spirit. This has been a true blessing!
, Massage Therapist
This course far exceeded my expectations!!! Kalena was fabulous in her
presentation style, content and process. I gleaned much in many arenas;
Infant massage is not just a bunch of strokes, it's about laying a foundation for caregivers to be nurturing and supportive. Those who care can tune in to their baby and make a huge impact on an individual and possibly societal level. I feel very empowered having had this experience, and plan to empower others!
, Med Perinatal Nursery
I can honestly say that in the 18 years I have been a PT and worked with children that this was the best professional course that I have ever attended. It was enlightening and empowering. I know that I will leave the course with not only the skills, but a renewed spirit.
, MS, PT Clinical Specialist
The training went far beyond my expectations. Some of what I will take away with me other than the nurturing touch and respectful communication is an increased awareness in: trusting process, mindful language, gratitude, non judgment and acceptance
, Occupational Therapist (OTR/L), SIPT Certified
This has, without reservation, been the most fulfilling continuing educational seminar I have attended. It is well-organized, clear in its intent and philosophy and presented with authentic love. The training far exceeded my expectations, not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level. Kalena’s passion for sharing the beauty of this gift of infant massage shines through brightly, yet softly as well. This has been a life altering experience for me that I am anxious to share.”
