|Why Belly Friendly?||
There are many reasons to subscribe to the Belly Friendly spa program:
|Are there any start-up fees?||
There are no start-up fees. Your first monthly subscription fee will be billed upon execution of the Partner Agreement, and will bill each month thereafter.
|What training do you provide that my therapists don't already have?||
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, our one-of-a-kind online education program is for all staff involved in the prenatal massage experience, from front desk personnel and management to therapists. Focusing on safety and the emotional and physical states of pregnancy, the training raises awareness for everything the client is experiencing – ensuring confidence in both therapist and client.
The front desk staff will benefit from details on the common myths, etiquette and faux pas of pregnancy, while therapists will delve even deeper to explore the aches and pains associated with hormonal and musculoskeletal changes by trimester.
|Will my therapists be certified in prenatal massage following Belly Friendly training?||
No. The Belly Friendly training program is focused on safety and comfort, as well as creating a pregnancy friendly – or Belly Friendly – environment. Although therapists will gain a deep understanding of working with pregnant women, as well as the confidence needed to provide the highest quality service, they will not receive any certification or continuing education credits.
|Do all therapists have to have prenatal certification?||
All therapists are not required to have prenatal certification. However, we recommend that any therapist performing prenatal services, regardless of participation in our program, should undergo prenatal specific training.
Belly Friendly is passionate about helping our partners provide the highest quality, safest prenatal spa services in the industry and we believe that a deep understanding of the prenatal experience is a key component to establishing confidence in staff and clients.
|How does Belly Friendly gift certificate redemption work?||
If a client comes to your spa with a Belly Friendly gift certificate, you accept the certificate for products or services equivalent to the dollar amount. You will then log in to the redemption website to process the redemption, and send the certificates to us each month for reimbursement of the face value of the certificate, less a 10% marketing fee.
|What is the length of commitment when I subscribe to Belly Friendly?||
We require a 12-month commitment for all new spa partners. Belly Friendly provides comprehensive training and marketing, with no start-up fees, and can take several months to realize its full potential. Based on 8 years of experience we believe that a 12-month commitment is key to the success of the program.
