Pregnancy Massage and Remedial Therapy IN-PERSON 2-Day CPD

Join Burrell Education for this wonderfully nurturing IN-PERSON, 2-Day HOMAGE to the art-form that is Pregnancy Massage and Remedial Therapy

Right from the beginning of my soft tissue therapy journey I’ve been slightly obsessed with the working with the Pregnant client.  I was encouraged to create this education by being a fully-booked practitioner whose clients always commented how challenging it was to find a both ‘nurturing and discomfort relieving massage’.   The nurturing, supportive and intuitive element of this work continues to be the most rewarding aspect of my teaching and working life.

And in this BRAND NEW EDUCATION, I bring together the best of Massage and Remedial Therapy techniques PLUS the use of tools such as Silicone Cupping and Instrument Assisted Massage and Kineseotaping specially modified for the Pregnant client to both support, nurture and improve your clients’ comfort throughout the Trimesters.

I'm positive that whether you are updating your current skills or at the begin of your soft tissue therapist journey this education will quite literally light a fire under your passion, skillset and capacity to serve deeply and get better outcomes for your clients.

If you are a certified Massage Therapist or Physiotherapist wanting to extend your offerings to help the Pregnant client or a fitness/movement professional with Pregnant/Post Natal clients and a massage qualification, this 2 Day CPD course will give you a ready-to-go, entire skill-set to help you create a stand-out service that will keep clients coming back time-after-time and keep them referring for you.
