Our pregnancy massage course is designed for the qualified massage therapist who wants to expand their existing massage skills and knowledge to provide safe, relaxing and beneficial prenatal massage to expectant mothers.
This intensive one-day pregnancy massage course will enable you to work more confidently when massaging pregnant women, whilst increasing your client base without the need for expensive equipment.
Pregnancy can be a wonderful and special time, however there are many physical and emotional changes that take place in the mother’s body as the baby develops, such as strain and pressure on the joints, ligaments and organs causing some pain and discomfort.
Pregnancy massage is a wonderfully relaxing and powerful therapy that helps to alleviate many of the symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy to help promote a healthy, happy pregnancy, as well as labour and recovery period.

During this pregnancy massage course you will learn the theory of how pregnancy affects the mother’s body physically, mentally and emotionally. Practical techniques are demonstrated and applied for comfortable and safe positioning of pregnant clients and preparation for pregnancy massage using unique massage movement to deal with muscular aches and pains which are specific to pregnancy.
Students will see a demonstration on a model and will initially learn on each other performing pregnancy massage techniques under the guidance of the tutor. Students will need to provide a model who is over six-months pregnant for the practical session from 2.00pm onwards. If this is not possible, we may be able to find willing models, so please let us know when you enrol.
Products and equipment required for training will be provided on the day. You need to provide your own towels (2 bath, 4 regular and 1 small), one blanket and 4 pillows.
You will be assessed by continual observation throughout the course, to ensure that you have all the knowledge that you will need to practice your skills professionally. Students competence and confidence will improve over time, with regular practice to perfect the skills taught on the day.
