This class covers:
This class covers:
~ Prenatal massage safety and all contraindications.
~ Dynamic Fascial Response™ bodywork for your prenatal client, for labor support and for the         postpartum client. Modalities include fascial release, structural integration, deep tissue, efflerage, craniosacral therapy, lymphatic drainage, effective pin and stretch, resist and release, traction and compression techniques. All which will help your client ease through the various stages of pregnancy.
~ Labor support massage techniques for an easier birth.
~ Postpartum strength and balancing with postural opening bodywork.

This course is for treating the pregnant client however, there is a bonus. Most of the side-lying techniques that you will learn for solving low back and hip pain, as well as the postpartum work of postural unwinding will be appropriate for non-pregnant clients .  Oh wait, there’s more! The jaw release work will be able to treat to any clients suffering from chronic headaches, TMJ, neck issues or pelvic issues. I was already a good bodyworker before I developed DFR, but with it my work became great, my schedule full and word of mouth has helped my successful career grow even more rewarding. It is truly inspiring work that fuels my fire.

Testing consists of short quizzes for each day covered which will be self-corrected and discussed as a class. A prenatal massage on your last day will act as your final exam.

“I’ll never forget the way it felt to massage a pregnant client before I was a prenatal specialist. I don’t want other therapists to feel as insecure or as unsure as I did. I want to keep clients and babies safe and well cared for by responsible massage therapists. For this, I have created a practical student handbook, filled with illustrations and learning material that will facilitate this dynamic class of group and problem-solve learning, demonstrations, and upon completion, solid practitioners. ”
