Pregnancy Massage Workshop

Bella Mama Pregnancy Massage workshop will provide you with the knowledge and understanding required to give safe, prenatal massage to expectant mothers and postnatal massages to new mothers. While learning the effective methods used to provide relaxing prenatal massage, students will also gain a thorough understanding of how to use these skills to start a new business.

It is vital to understand the difference between prenatal massage (pregnancy massage) and other forms of massage. From the commencement of the course, students learn why prenatal massage is unique. They will also learn when the best time is to start prenatal massage and how to use it.

Our Pregnancy Massage workshop instructs students on the expectant mother’s journey through anatomical and emotional changes. The knowledge will assist students in determining which specific prenatal massage techniques will be most suitable for the individual’s needs. The comparative benefits of prenatal massage and medication are also discussed. After laying a sound base of theoretical knowledge, the course shifts into teaching the practical applications of prenatal massage.
