This one day advanced course looks at many of the symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy. It is a gentle touch massage; physically gentle, non forceful and non intrusive and does not stimulate the physical body in the same way as deep tissue massage, vigorous sports massage or circulatory Swedish massage, and although common techniques are used, the aim of a pregnancy massage is to be relaxing, soothing and calming, not remedial. Half a day is self-study with a full day of practical application. The manual will be emailed in PDF format prior to doing the practical day. This course will give the professional therapist the confidence to massage prenatal clients.
The pregnancy massage is carried out with the client in a side-lying position and includes massaging the arms, hands, legs, feet, the whole of back, shoulders, face and scalp as well as very light massage to the abdomen (subject to acceptance from the mum-to-be).
Pregnancy Massage helps to prepare the body for the changes that occur during this special time and will help to promote relaxation and ease muscle tension which can aid and support the mum-to-be and help her enjoy a healthy, happy pregnancy.
(This massage can also be adapted for people suffering with life limiting illness and conditions as it is so gentle and nurturing, with lots of bolstering techniques and alternative positions!)
£175 Inclusive of Comprehensive Manual, Diploma and ongoing support.
