Pregnancy is a time of dynamic change for a woman and her developing fetus. As the mother provides the necessary Essence, Ki and Blood energy to support the growth of her baby, the quality and flow of her own energy shifts, sometimes causing imbalances.  Shiatsu effectively addresses many of the issues associated with pregnancy such as morning sickness, heartburn, pre-eclampsia, lowback ache, bodily discomfort, fatigue, edema, and carpal tunnel, to name a few.

This will explore:

  • Effects of pregnancy on the 12 meridians and the Extraordianary Vessels.
  • Common issues in pregnancy, treatment protocol and contraindications.
  • The basics for providing a comfortable shiatsu session during each trimester to increase the  flow and balance of energy to mother and baby.
