Illinois Massage for Expecting Mothers


Massage for Expecting Mothers

Dec 15 - 16 Instructor: Danielle Almendinger
There is no better time for a woman to get a massage than when she's pregnant. In this course, you will learn how to support expectant mothers through massage as they change both physically and emotionally.
When massaging a pregnant client, it's important to be able to assess her condition and adapt the massage accordingly. Some areas could be off limits, while some may require a tender touch. This course will give you the knowledge, hands-on skills and confidence to safely and effectively alleviate her stressed joints and muscles.
You will explore the amazing changes that the body experiences throughout a pregnancy, discover the best position for her at each trimester, and learn how massage can help loosen and prepare the body for a smooth labor and delivery. The instructor also ensures that you leave the class knowing how to market your new knowledge and skills.
Students should bring a massage table, a set of sheets, 3-4 pillows, a breast drape and lotion.

Registration will begin at 8:45 am. Class will be from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm with breaks each day
