Course description

Pregnancy massage (or prenatal massage, as it is also known) differs from other kinds of massage; it is important to know the differences and how it is unique. The start of the course outlines this, as well as informing students of the best time during pregnancy to start prenatal massage and how it can help in different ways through the three trimesters of pregnancy, including how it can help not just the mother, but also the baby.

From the Pregnancy Massage Course, students will gain an understanding of the anatomical and emotional changes the mother-to-be will undergo during her pregnancy, which will help in deciding which techniques are best for the individual. Also discussed, are the benefits of pregnancy massage in comparison to medication.

From this base of knowledge, the course moves into the practical aspect of massage. This includes information on the different types of massages that can be performed on a pregnant woman, how to do them, and the advantages of each technique. In addition, other complementary therapies are discussed, such as acupuncture and aromatherapy, and how these can be used alongside massage for the benefit of the client and the additional revenue they will bring to a business.

Armed with theoretical knowledge and practical techniques to provide prenatal massages and additional therapies, the remainder of the Pregnancy Massage Course focuses on providing students with information on how to add this service to your business.

There are myriad of ways to market a business, from traditional to modern means. This course provides an overview of a number of the ways that you can increase the exposure of your business and gain more clients. Also discussed are the ways that you can operate, other services and products you can provide, and other ways of gaining exposure that will give you an edge over the competition.

The Pregnancy Massage Course concludes with a summary of what has been learned throughout the course. This gives students the opportunity to not only feel a sense of accomplishment for all they have learned but to also ensure they have retained the information and to highlight areas that they may need to go over again.
