Chimama is a massage therapy practice specialising in the well-being of women during pregnancy and beyond. Chimama was founded by Julie Davies, a certified infant massage instructor and a mother of two children. Julie has a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Melbourne as well as a Certificate IV qualification in Massage Therapy from Evolve College.
Julie discovered the amazing benefits of infant massage in 2010 after participating in an International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) baby massage course with her first child. Julie has given both her babies regular massage, which provided a quiet time for them to connect and helped to soothe and settle their mood. Julie's second child suffered from eczema - to cool and calm her baby's skin, Julie massaged her son daily using a hydrating moisturizer.
In 2013 Julie completed the First Touch Infant Massage Training Program through IAIM. Julie strongly believes that regular massage in infancy provides a foundation for physical, emotional, and spiritual harmony throughout life. Julie enjoys sharing her personal experience and knowledge of infant massage with parents that are keen to learn ways to strengthen their communication with their children using positive touch.
