Pregnancy Massage Course Overview
This course has been written and designed specifically for qualified therapists wishing to extend their skills and confidence to be able to offer antenatal massage safely, effectively and in line with insurance guidelines.
During this course you will also gain an understanding of how pregnancy affects the mother’s body physically, mentally and emotionally, enabling you to work more confidently when massaging pregnant women, whilst increasing your client base without the need for expensive equipment.
Pregnancy Massage can be a wonderful way of helping to alleviate many of the symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy. During this amazing time of physical and emotional change, massage can be of enormous benefit to both mother and baby.
Studies show that women who receive regular massages have fewer complications during their pregnancy and labour and that their babies are more settled and content, suffering fewer baby ailments. Although pregnancy is a wonderful time, many changes take place in the mother’s body as the baby develops. This can put strain and pressure on the joints, ligaments and organs causing some pain and discomfort which massage can help alleviate.
