The goal in prenatal massage is to help the woman find balance within her ever changing body. This can facilitate a healthy and happy pregnancy which can lead towards a healthy and happy birth.
At NHI we focus on several aspects of pre-natal massage.
- The physiological changes that can occur for the mother during the different trimesters
- The Benefits and Cautions of prenatal massage: We keep clients safe!
- The proper positioning of a pregnant client on the massage (usually lying on her side)
- You will practice on your classmates to integrate various new techniques you learn from the instructors demonstration.
- Our goal is for you to feel confident in your bodywork when working with anyone, including a pregnant woman.
