Expand your massage practice with maternity specialty in 4 day course designed by distinguished author & expert Carole Osborne.
Wednesday-Saturday, August 6-9, 2014
Tap into the wisdom of over 35 years in the massage & body work profession. Meet your continuing education goals in this course designed by Carole Osborne, distinguished expert in prenatal and perinatal massage therapy. The Pre- and Perinatal Massage Therapy Course is a 32 hour Specialization Certification. Move far beyond general adaptations for maternity and pregnancy massage in this learner friendly, hands-on certification workshop.
Practice and receive personalized feedback in:
Reflexive positional release
Osteopathic soft tissue techniques and other Western methods
Applied tai chi principles
Guidelines provided in the course empower you to safely and effectively modify techniques to address women’s concerns
Plus other somatic methods modified for emotional, structural, and physiological challenges of the childbearing year
I understand that I will receive certification and continuing education credits for this course ONLY if I have satisfactorily performed on both the theoretical test (minimum 80% score) and the hands-on evaluations (satisfactory in accuracy, pressure, sensitivity, speed, rhythm, positioning, draping, client interaction, and body mechanics). Although most students complete the program within the four workshop days, I understand that if my in-class test and evaluation are not both satisfactory, I will be required to do further study, practice, and evaluation in order to be certified and get CEU documentation.
