This Prenatal Massage Therapy course will cover the essentials of everything you need to know in order to work safely, confidently and effectively with pregnant women. The seminar will explore the different stages of pregnancy and how pregnancy affects the various systems of the body. We will examine contraindications and precautions and how to help relieve pregnancy related discomforts. Proper draping and bolstering procedures will be demonstrated and practiced.

At the end of the day, each student will both give and receive a full side-lying pregnancy massage.
