Course Elements

This Belly Friendly multi-level CE certification program focuses on safety, positioning, the emotional and physical states of pregnancy, and building therapist confidence.

This training begins with four lessons appropriate for anyone on a spa team, exploring the common myths, etiquette and faux pas of pregnancy.  Then therapists will delve even deeper to explore the challenges associated with hormonal and musculoskeletal changes by trimester.  In addition, we will demonstrate a step-by-step prenatal massage protocol, and hands-on techniques appropriate for all trimesters of pregnancy! We have even devoted an entire lesson to boosting your confidence as a therapist, ensuring that you feel well-equipped with the know-how required to answer difficult pregnancy massage related questions, and for seamless draping and positioning of expectant moms.
