Pregnancy Massage Training Course in Gloucestershire May 2018

Posted · Add Comment

FHT-Accredited Pregnancy Massage Training at Cheltenham School of Complementary Therapy & Beauty May 14th and 15th, 2018 It’s difficult for massage therapists to decide what training they would like to invest in as there’s just so many courses out there to choose from.  Some massage therapists decided to treat pregnant clients without additional specialist training. As long as therapists are insured, this is ok, although we would like to think that specialist pregnancy massage training gives qualified therapists an edge of knowledge and expertise that the client will respect.

Level 3 VTCT-Accredited Reflexology Training Course  in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire Reflexology is the most popular treatment we offer in our holistic practise.  It’s a fascinating therapy that involves stimulating the nerves on the feet or hands (and sometimes ears!). The nerves that are stimulated send a message to corresponding parts of the body.  There are numerous theories as to how Reflexology works. Some theorists say that crystal deposits (waste from cells) settle around nerve endings and when these are cleared the body works more effectively. Other people believe that there are energy meridians in the body that make it function at its best and if the pathways are blocked wellbeing will […]
