Course Information

Pregnancy massage can help to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and can also help to relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. It is a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for back pain, when choices for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited. Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy. Massage therapy has also been found to reduce anxiety and depression.

On completion of the day, you will be awarded an Orchid Massage Academy diploma in Massage for Pregnancy. This course is recognised and insurable by FHT and most other insurers, providing you already have a qualification in Massage. (Check with your insurer before booking as their conditions for insurance do change. )
