Peri Natal Massage
Conscious Touch & Ethical Practices for the Childbearing Year
Tuesday April 21st 2015
Location: Universal Spa in Downers Grove
This Peri-Natal Massage Course is designed as an advanced practice for Licensed Massage Therapists. It aspires to assist the therapist in safely and effectively applying massage modalities for the pregnant woman during the three trimesters of pregnancy through the post-partum period.
This is to be accomplished through the study of: the physiological and structural changes that occur during each trimester of pregnancy, labor, delivery, and post-partum; along with the implications for therapy and positioning; complications or warning signs to identify contraindications; effective history taking and documentation.
Embryology is introduced to increase awareness of the developing fetus and to explore the many effects that massage therapy, including stress reduction, has on the dyad of mother and child. Therapists will have the opportunity to explore their own beliefs and attitudes about pregnancy and birthing, as well as their communication skills, all in support of providing a safe and therapeutic environment for their clients.
This workshop will be delivered with the utilization of an outline, participant handouts for easy future referencing, audio-visuals, and demonstration with a pregnant client. There will be a clinic practicum with pregnant clients provided.
