FHT Diploma in Pregnancy Massage                    

Please note: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we are changing the way we deliver the theoretical aspect of some of our courses. We will host virtual classrooms in order to deliver our same great standard of training whilst reducing the amount of face to face contact. Your training and safety is our Priority.

The purpose of this one day course is to show how pregnancy massage is a key way of aiding a client to get relief from everyday stresses pregnancy can have on the body. It can support the mother to co-ordinate breathing, promote relaxation and have confidence in her own body’s abilities. This in turn promotes bonding and closeness with her baby and aids the therapist/masseuse to work with and understand the effects the pregnancy has on the body and how they can proactively aid relief on aches and pains and promote relaxation using a combination of Swedish massage and Shiatsu techniques.
