WEEK 1 – OVERVIEW AND PRENATAL MASSAGE

This first week forms a strong theoretical foundation which flows through to the next two weeks. In the pre-birth stage, the changing state of the mother brings multiple challenges, some of which produce discomfort, stress and other uncomfortable symptoms. Hence, students learn to identify possible contra-indications to treatment in this phase, first aid, and the strict health and safety standards applied in quality spas.

Yet, it is critical for specialist practitioners to understand the physiology of mothers during this delicate period of transition.
