Course information

Description

During pregnancy the body changes faster than at any other time, it can be a wonderful time in a woman’s life but can also bring its problems.  It is a great time to have a massage and this can be hugely beneficial for the mum-to-be.  However, every woman is different and every pregnancy is different so you must take this into account as her therapist.

This course will equip you to safely treat pregnant clients with nurturing and healing massage through all stages of their pregnancy, and to ease the common discomforts associated with pregnancy. The course also deals with post-natal massage, an area which is often neglected, and will set you apart from those only trained in pregnancy massage.
