With more and more expectant women enhancing their pregnancy experience with massage therapy, you need to know the essentials:

  • What are the normal physiological and functional changes women experience?
  • 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 cause no harm?
  • What are the signs of medical complications in pregnancy?

This one-day face-to-face workshop is where many MTs get started in prenatal massage therapy. By featuring each body system’s normal prenatal adaptations, we give you both the WHY and HOW of prenatal MT safety basics. If you need a solid foundation for working with a woman who is having a normal, low-risk, uncomplicated pregnancy, this is the introductory workshop for you.
