Prenatal Thai Massage is a healing system that nourishes moms-to-be as their bodies prepare for childbirth. It combines the mindful movements of yoga with the nurturing touch of massage. This 125-page e-book contains techniques for prenatal clients in any stage of pregnancy. Learn seated, side-lying, and semi-reclined positions. The appendix features specific techniques for addressing sciatica, headaches, and more!
This book is specifically intended for:
- Yoga instructors, especially those trained in prenatal yoga, who want to offer bodywork to their students. Instructors can use the techniques in this book as assists, or hands-on nurturing support, during yoga classes.
- Thai bodyworkers who aim to keep the continuity of care when working with their regular clients. Learning Prenatal Thai Massage is a great way to support long-time clients through this important period in their lives.
- Massage therapists who are ready to expand their prenatal massage knowledge base. While the routine in this book is performed on a mat, many of the techniques demonstrated can be used on a massage table or chair. This allows more creativity and versatility in your practice.
