Pregnancy Massage helps to boost endorphins in the body and improve comfort for pregnant mothers. It may also help to ease pain in the early stages of labour, as well as providing reassurance through touch.
The Pregnancy Massage course covers the theory and practice of pregnancy massage. We teach you a full body massage routine that can be easily incorporated into your everyday treatment menu.
Clients who had surgery and unable to lie face down on the massage bed can also be treated with our Pregnancy massage routine.
