This 2 days workshop is designed for doulas, birthworkers, midwives, therapists, healers, or anybody who works with new mothers and who wants to be able to give a safe and effective, nurturing postpartum ritual.
The workshop covers the background of the massage, the tutor’s experience of giving the massage, demos of the techniques, practice of the massage, debrief of the experience and a group closing ceremony to finish each day.
This is a two day workshop were you will learn both levels of the massage-the “standard” technique (which focuses on the abdomen and hips) and the “deeper” one, which focuses on the rest of the body and the abdomen and chest.
What makes this workshop so special? It is reserved to a small group of up to 12 participants. It is a deeply spiritual workshop, where you will not only learn this technique in depth, and leave able to offer it to your clients, but you will also experience for yourself how powerful and deeply healing this ritual is.
The workshop includes a very unique and detailed handout which includes a mix of traditional wisdom and scientific evidence-all the effects of the techniques on the various joints, muscles and organs have been validated by an osteopath, and includes links to videos showing you all the techniques. You will also gain access to a secret Facebook group for people who have done the workshop-where you can share knowledge and connect and network with an awesome group of nearly 500 like minded practitioners.
Practicalities of the 2 days
We will be practising a massage which includes exposing and massaging the belly from the ribs down to the pubic bone on the first day and the whole of the abdomen and chest on the second, so please wear comfy clothing (soft trousers/leggings/jogging bottoms etc are comfier than jeans for this) and if you’d rather keep your bra on for the second day, a soft bra is more comfortable than a wired one for this.
We love babies and children, which is why we have to say with a heavy heart that they are too distracting for this workshop. During this course we spend most of our time practising a massage in pairs, so babies would need to be put down and would get fed up and upset, and this would impair the learning for the mother and the rest of the group. You are welcome to bring a baby if you can bring another adult with you who can take the baby out and entertain them for the day or who can stay nearby with your breastfed baby til s/he needs a feed.
Refreshments: Tea, coffee, drinks and snacks will be provided at the venue.
