Pregnancy Massage Training Course

Massage during pregnancy can provide really special time for the pregnant client.    Maternity massage can be performed with the client in a side-laying or seated position.  As when sleeping, the pregnant client needs lots of pillows to help them to get comfortable. We often use at least 3 pillows to support the the bump, legs and arms. Perhaps the time when we see how truly incredible the body is is when it is pregnant?
