First Aid Training Courses in Cheltenham     About 8 years ago I was walking along Cheltenham High Street with my 2 children.

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. I think most of us are finding that clients are more discerning than ever and in my own therapy I have […]
