Pregnancy Massage Certificate Course Description
WHAT IS PREGNANCY MASSAGE?
A pregnancy massage is called prenatal massage which is a full body massage performed by a certified prenatal massage therapist that is similar to a Swedish massage (like what you might experience at a spa) except for a few modifications with body positioning that can ensure the safety and comfort for both mother and baby.
During pregnancy, the body undergoes many physical changes which can cause stress, back pain, and discomfort. Pregnancy massage is one type of massage that is adapted to suit expectant moms. Apply pregnancy massage can help to eliminate and relieve some symptoms and reduce stress hormones. This let the mom-to-be enjoy the positive sides of pregnancy.
What does a pregnancy massage involve?
Pregnancy can put a lot of stress on your back, shoulders, neck and abdominal muscles. Pregnancy massage is designed to relieve some of the aches and pains that are common during pregnancy. A qualified therapist will understand the areas to target and which to avoid.
Before the massage begins, your therapist will talk to you about your health and lifestyle. They will ask you to lie on a specially-designed massage table and will cover you with towels to protect your privacy and to keep you warm. They will probably use creams or oils to help them to massage your skin smoothly.
They will help you to get comfortable with pillows. Remember it is not a good idea to lie flat on your back while you are in the second half of your pregnancy since this puts too much pressure on the vein that runs from your legs to your heart.
