Furthermore, I’m a certified instructor who teaches infant/child massage and nurturing touch for healthy babies as well as for premature and medically challenged children. I took Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) training at the University of New Mexico and St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City, I also established the Stony Brook University Nurturing Touch program in the NICU for parents of NICU infants.
For the past 28 years, I’ve been working with full-term, premature, and medically challenged babies — nurturing to teaching families the art of Nurturing Touch therapy. I also received additional training from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to provide Safe Touch education. This special therapy is ideal for family members whose loved ones are dealing with cancer or are in hospice or palliative care.
Additionally, I taught stress management and breathwork meditation. I’ve even worked with Dr. Mehmet Oz in his Complementary Care program at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.
