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 also 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.

You need to be a qualified level 3 or above massage therapist to be able to attend this course.  Detailed knowledge of anatomy is necessary to safe deliver of techniques learnt on this course. 

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.

At Affable Therapy Training, we understand the need to conduct classes in small groups.  We also understand that learners learn differently therefore course material is delivered in various ways, e.g. powerpoint  presentation, groupwork, detailed course manual with diagrams, other activities to keep learners engaged throughout the day. Our teachers are qualified and have years of experience in their chosen field. They bring their knowledge and passion to the class to inspire and encourage the learners.  Lessons are carefully planned around learner needs making our courses very effective.
