Your new client is pregnant......

  • What if she can’t lay comfortably on her side, nor safely on her back?
  • Is your bodywork modality contraindicated during pregnancy?
  • What if she has contractions during a session?

Alleviate uncertainties! Gain confidence to practice safely and effectively with your pregnant clients!! Pregnancy Massage Fundamentals will give you the essential pregnancy massage guidelines to supplement your bodywork practice.

NOTE: This class includes hands-on bodywork and when possible, observation of positioning and belly rub with a pregnant volunteer. It primarily covers fundamental guidelines to enable you to adapt and practice your own bodywork safely with pregnant clients. This is the first day of the MotherTouch Prenatal Bodywork Training/Certification. The next 3 days of that training are primarily hands-on bodywork.

LEARN:

  • Pregnancy Physiology that affects your practice
  • Prenatal Touch Precautions & Contraindications that every bodyworker should know
  • Signs & Symptoms of pregnancy-related pathologies
  • Position & Draping options that improve your body mechanics, enhance her comfort, reduce uterine ligament strain
  • Clarifications on myths & realities about pregnancy massage.
  • Your Impact on the pregnant woman and child in-utero.
  • Bodywork Adaptations through the trimesters
  • Energy flow with stretches and acupressure
  • Postural adjustment
  • Diastasis Recti awareness
