Event description

Description

Pregnancy is an amazing experience that is often emotionally demanding and physically challenging. Even during a textbook pregnancy women find themselves tired, achey, irritable, unable to rest soundly or uncomfortable throughout their term. How can you find relief? With so many benefits to offer Massage is great place to begin. If you found yourself wishing that your significant other had the skills to soothe your aching feet and shoulders during your pregnancy this Prenatal Massage for Couples workshop may be the answer you are looking for.



Supporting and nurturing your partner through prenatal massage is natural and safe. The language of touch can help form a soothing bond of trust, deepening connection between parents and birthing partners.
Prenatal Massage has been shown to reduce stress, improve sleep, reduce pain, relieve sciatic discomfort, and calm anxiety. Many of these techniques can be applied during labor, delivery and post partum.


This three hour course is open to all expectant couples- including birth support partners and life partners. Non traditional partnerships and gender presentations are welcomed.

During the course we will teach five basic massage techniques that may be applied to the entire body as well as three options for positioning: seated, side lying and reclining. We will illustrate how to use every day household items as props to support and position optimally for comfort. Our class will cover techniques that can be used with or without oil and lotion, however for privacy Mom's will remain fully clothed throughout the class. Take home a quick guide to technique and positioning for home reference.
