Venus Rising Prenatal Massage, The Next Step with Sue Walker
In 'The Next Step' prenatal practitioners will progress beyond comfort care. We will discuss the high risk client and how best to work with them. The focus of this class will be pain management. We will continue with the practice of safe and effective techniques but with a greater emphasis on palpation skills and how to isolate tissues and wait for change. This class is beneficial for practitioners that are experienced working with pregnancy and are interested in providing additional care to their clients. If you are already in love with the work, and want to take it to the next level, this class provides the next step. Come join us!
