This day long course focuses on the fundamentals needed in pregnancy massage and is the in-depth study you most likely never received in massage school.

This is a prerequisite for the Pregnancy Massage Certification . You’re welcome to take it on alla carte without the certification and will receive 8CEs either way.

Unlike most DFR™ courses, this class is 90% discussion. It is not a class in applied massage however, it’s the foundational knowledge that every practitioner working with pregnant clientele must carry under their belt. We will discuss the fundamentals of pregnancy massage so you can walk away with a deeper understanding of the subject and the confidence to take good care of your prenatal client. The topics discussed lay the foundation for the Pregnancy Massage Certification in DFR™but you do not need to be signed up for the certification to take this course.

Topics of discussion are:

The benefits of pregnancy massage and debunking the myth that pregnancy massage and bodywork would be unsafe.

Pregnancy conditions and complications so you understand when to ask for a medical release, safe methods to use as well as safe positioning.

Understanding the stages of pregnancy’s physiological changes, postural patterns and discomforts and tension.

Contraindicated points. Learn points on the body that can stimulate contraction, ripen the cervix and are great for labor stimulation and support but unsafe to use on your prenatal client.

Proper intake and assessment is different for prenatal clients. Get skilled at flawless intake. Intake forms and medical release forms are provided.

Understanding the circulatory system and how pregnancy affects it.

Keeping your client and their baby safe as well as your career.

Rapport skills for addressing the pregnant client.

Non binary and queer ethics for the pregnant client.

Master side-lying and semi-reclined positioning and develop exceptional draping skills.

Understanding fascia and the benefits fascial unwinding.

Chula designs her classes based on what she would want in a class as a professional having thousands of hours of massage experience. It’s for the practitioner who wants some rocket juice to fuel their practice!

“I like that Chula showed us the proper techniques and then allowed us to modify them to our specific style”

“Chula is one of the best teachers I have ever had. This structural work is difficult for me but she made it much easier, was very patient and clear and very easy to pay attention to. Her enthusiasm for the subject was contagious”

“I really appreciate the book and all of the reference material that was provided”

“Chula’s class gave me a well rounded understanding of prenatal massage and postnatal care. Her teaching style is organized, focused, and kind. She will wait until every last person is on the same page before moving on. I will continue to take every class she offers and encourage fellow body workers to do the same!”

BONUS!
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 .  And 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. With it my work became great, my schedule full and word of mouth has helped my successful career grow even more rewarding. DFR™ is truly inspiring work that fuels my fire I love to share it with other professionals wanting to polish their practice.

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.
