During this hands on class, we will explore the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy along with learning how pregnancy impacts the body. We will review in this class, safe draping protocols, proper positioning, while keeping optimal body mechanics for massage therapists in side-lying, semi reclined, and in supine. Today’s modern pregnancy requires the importance of using correct or inclusive language and to have an understanding of current guidelines of massage in all trimesters of pregnancy. We will explore how to treat common issues that occur during pregnancy and discuss perinatal mood disorders and how massage can have an impact on the clients struggling with them, their partners, and families. We will look at research and benefits of pregnancy massage. We will explain the ethical concepts of informed consent and power differential as well using gender inclusive language when working with clients.
