Life is an incredible journey, full of unexpected turns that can shape our destiny.
For me, one such pivotal moment was when I stumbled upon the profound world
of pregnancy massage. Little did I know that this chance encounter would not only change my career path with a pregnancy massage specialty but also touch the lives of countless clients -pregnant or not!
In this blog, I will share my personal experience of how prenatal massage became a catalyst for professional growth and a source of joy in touching the lives of my clients.
Discovering the Power of Prenatal Massage:
1) worried that I would do something wrong and
Enhancing Skills and Knowledge:
This inspired me to study Somatic NLP and in addition to practicing massage, I am also a trauma informed somatic NLP coach.
The journey of becoming a certified prenatal massage therapist was not without its challenges. I devoted countless hours to study and training, learning about the physiological changes and emotional challenges during pregnancy and how to adapt masssage techniques accordingly.
I mastered positioning, bolstering, bodywork. In a specialty course I learned pregnancy conditions and complications and when medical releases were necessary to ensure the safety and comfort of expectant clients while protecting my career.
Creating Lasting Bonds:
How ALL my Clients Benefited
A Pregnancy Massage Specialty not only changed my career but enriched my life in ways I could never have imagined. The power of touch combined with empathy and understanding has allowed me to make a difference in the lives of expectant clients, supporting them through one of life’s most miraculous journeys.
As I continue on this path, I remain grateful for the opportunity to change lives, one massage at a time. If you are a massage therapist looking to broaden your horizons, I encourage you to consider the profound impact of prenatal massage – it might just be the key to unlocking your true potential as a therapist.
