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 how to work with the energetics of childbirth and to integrate these skills into your work and 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. For each 2 day module of the course we  build awareness of the energy work of the extraordinary vessels, mastering touch techniques in different positions, and gaining in depth understanding of the energetic effects of acupoints that you can use in a very practical way.
You will also explore how shiatsu-based skills can support you personally – promoting your own well-being and preventing ‘burn-out’.
