Pregnancy Massage Course

Pregnancy Massage Course

Our Pregnancy Massage course will enable you safety and effectively massage a client who is over 3 months pregnancy. This course is excellent for experienced therapists wishing to carve a niche for themselves by specialising in pregnancy treatments. The course manual covers a detailed account of physiological changes in pregnancy written by a midwife. The course material has been developed in conjunction with the midwife making it very safe to deliver and effective for the clients.

You will learn about different towell techniques for pregnancy clients and how to deliver massage when the client cannot position herself flat on the massage couch. You will also learn which areas to avoid and the safety aspects of treating a pregnancy client.

Pregnancy massage course is an excellent course if you wish to specialise in the pregnancy related area. A pregnant client usually books for more than one treatment to help them throughout the course of pregnancy. A pregnant client is also part of other networks and is usually in contact with other mums making the referral system work more effectively. You will be able to ask the tutor about other potential networks to attract more pregnancy clients for your therapy practice.

We are confident that you will be able to learn the technique in one day. Our manuals are detailed and are excellent reference sources when you leave the class to remind you of the techniques. However, if you feel that you need to repeat the course for any reason, you can do so at no extra cost subject to availability.

First of all congratulations! You can attend some courses such as waxing, facial, manicure, pedicure, eyelash extension, threading etc., which are not intensively based on massage. For other courses which are more for full body or are heavily massage based, we would request you to either get a permission from your midwife / GP or bring a model to work on. This is because in UK the legislation is very clear only qualified medical professionals can work on a pregnant client. For another learner to work on you during the course, they need permission from your qualified medical professional e.g. midwife or GP. Also we will need to assign a qualified pregnancy massage specialist tutor to the course that you will be joining so let us know at the time of enrolment. We recommend that you wait for the first trimester to be over before deciding to do any training course
