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
