Shiatsu for Birth Professionals
A SIX DAYS COURSE by Wellmother FOR MIDWIVES, OBs, DOULAS AND ALL BIRTHWORKERS & MATERNITY CARE PROFESSIONALS.
Shiatsu massage and touch are powerful tools to include in your work in supporting women. The Well Mother approach enables Midwives, Doulas, Obstetricians, Physios etc. to learn about the effects of acupressure, and about how and when to use the points within the context of the energy of pregnancy and childbirth. Throughout the 6 days course we build awareness of how to use simple touch techniques to balance the energy of the extraordinary vessels, specifically relating to the dynamics of pregnancy and childbirth, adapting techniques to use in different positions and situations as appropriate. You will gain in depth skills that are simple to apply and integrate into your work to enhance your practice. You will learn to work in an holistic way, combining Ancient Eastern and Modern philosophies. Relevant skills are: specific ways of touching, supporting the energy of childbirth, using acupoints effectively, awareness of posture and movement, and awareness of the energy of the birth environment and it’s influence, moving towards ‘holding space’ with energy awareness.
You will also explore how shiatsu-based skills can support you personally – promoting your own well-being and preventing ‘burn-out’.
