Learn how to confidently, safely and effectively treat pregnant clients with integrative massage therapy methods to address common concerns and discomforts.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy or prenatal massage is a system of adapted massage techniques that help both the mother and the baby before, during and after pregnancy. Pre-pregnancy massage helps the mother stay relaxed and ready to conceive. Massage during pregnancy addresses parent-child bonding, stress and the physical downsides of pregnancy, and postpartum massage helps the mother recover from childbirth.

Through pregnancy massage CE courses, you can learn how to perform sidelying massage, address the most common physical complaints expecting mothers have and watch for contraindications. Some comprehensive prenatal massage courses will also cover infant massage techniques. Anyone looking to specialize in pregnancy massage may want to consider courses in how to assist doulas and midwives around delivery time.
