Prenatal Massage: This 2-day comprehensive Prenatal Massage course addresses a wide range of physical and emotional health concerns.  Massage Therapists will learn how to execute accurate and effective treatment, by covering in detail, the client’s health history information and specific massage techniques. This course will also include intensive hands-on Prenatal Massage techniques, isolated stretching techniques, proper positioning and draping specific to this clientele. Furthermore, you can assure that your client will be safe by learning all about contraindications, complications, postural changes and basic anatomy of the pelvis.  You can trust that this Prenatal Massage course is excellent for training competent massage therapists in dealing with care and compassion to make a pregnant journey just that extra special.
