Instructor: Carole Osborne
Prenatal Massage is one of the fastest growing specializations in massage today; over half of hospitals that offer massage therapy have prenatal, labor, and/or postpartum services. With more and more women seeking massage therapy as part of their prenatal care we need to be confident in our skills to work with pregnant clients. If you feel your massage training left you insufficiently prepared to navigate pregnancy's complex concerns, or you just want to build on your knowledge base and learn from one of the Pre- and Perinatal experts in our field, then this series is not to be missed!
Pregnancy Massage 101 covers the fundamentals of prenatal massage:
What are the normal physiological, functional, & emotional changes pregnant women experience?
How can my work reduce stress, discomforts, & pain so that my client and her baby have a healthier and more pleasurable nine months?
How do I safely and comfortably support her position on my therapy table?
What kinds of adaptations to my usual techniques should I make to safely massage my pregnant client?
What are the signs of prenatal medical complications so that I know how to adjust and when to refer?
Don't miss this opportunity to study with Carole Osborne, author of Pre- and Perinatal Massage Therapy. The focus of this series is on the joy of pregnancy and includes a healthy respect for its many challenges and possible risks. Carole Osborne uses this perspective to help dispel common fears about massage during pregnancy while clearing up many contradictions massage therapist may have encountered all the while filling any gaps in education. The techniques spotlighted in each course have helped to reduce common prenatal complaints, and inspired prenatal modifications to massage routines worldwide.
