Pregnancy Massage

Many pregnant women require massage, but many massage therapists lack the confidence to offer this service. This course is designed to improve your professional skills when treating pregnant women and conditions of pregnancy and will comprehensively cover contraindications. You will leave with the skills and confidence to work happily with pregnancy.

A one day course looking at how to improve your skills and confidence with working with pregnant women. Topics covered will be positions of client on couch and how to support and make them comfortable, contraindications will be covered and explained, and some common pregnancy symptoms will be looked at. Massage techniques and routines will be taught. You will also learn some acupressure techniques which can be used for nausea, pre-birth preparation, common pregnancy symptoms, induction of labour and pain relief in childbirth.

This course is taught jointly by Michael Gibbons, College Principal and Elaine Gibbons, a Brighton-based acupuncturist with 17 years experience, specialising in Pregnancy and Fertility Acupuncture.


“I had a great day and found it really liberating that you were able to follow your own intuition about the massage routine. I also found it very reassuring to be giving the information to remove the myth that i had about pregnancy massage. A very BIG thank you to you both.” Nikki, Eastbourne.

“I found it very reassuring sharing information I had gained about pregnancy massage with Michael and other practitioners and being able to add to this Michaels wealth of experience in massage techniques. Elaine’s acupressure knowledge is vast . I now feel so much more confident. I feel like I know enough now!”
Heidi Wood , Aromatherapist, Brighton.

“Thank you very much for this fantastic workshop. I really enjoyed the day. It was a good mixture of theory and practice. I especially enjoyed the practical part and being able to be creative with my massage routine. I definitely feel more confident with pregnancy massage and can’t wait to practise on my pregnant friend.” Ute Kind, Brighton

“Thank you very much for running your course on Pregnancy Massage. What a great course in wonderful surroundings and with such warm and friendly people. The course really does free the taboo of massage while pregnant and shows some interesting and useful techniques which can be applied to many clients, pregnant or not. The whole day revived my interest, gave me confidence and encouraged me to go further. I look forward to further courses that you run. My grateful thanks to you both.” Liz Rann, Portsmouth
