Biomechanical approach

Perinatal care and massage therapy

From preconception to the arrival of the baby, the massage of the pregnant woman is an essential support. This training will allow you to learn a unique new choreography, inspired by Swedish massage, Californian massage, Abhyanga massage (Indian massage) as well as a host of passive mobilizations and different possible installations. By learning basic perinatal concepts, you will also become massage therapy companions, trained to relieve, and better guide your clients and their families through each step towards childbirth and during the postnatal period.
