Pre- and Perinatal Massage Text

Price: $61.99

Authors: Carole Osborne-Sheets

This book will give a comprehensive foundation manual therapists need to safely and effectively support the birth of a mother and her baby. It covers the techniques and benefits of therapeutic massage and bodywork throughout pregnancy and labor, and in the postpartum period. Physiological, structural, and emotional developments in the childbearing year are explained, emphasizing ramifications for somatic practices. General guidelines for effective, safe therapy are presented, with specific contraindications and precautions relevant to each trimester.

Carole Osborne-Sheets, a somatic practitioner since 1974, began developing infant and prenatal massage therapy in 1980. She has trained thousands of therapists and other perinatal specialists in her current advanced certification workshop, Pre-and Perinatal Massage Therapy, and in her former course, Bodywork for the Childbearing Year. She is also author of Deep Tissue Sculpting and co-founder of the International Professional School of Bodywork in San Diego, California.
