Nurturing the Mother®
Nurturing the Belly Visceral Abdominal Massage
With so many people experiencing digestive challenges due to food allergies, stress and fast-paced lifestyles, there is a need to slow down and rest and digest. This class will focus on supporting the abdominal area that is so often left out of a massage. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to perform a confident and nurturing abdominal massage protocol. Included in the protocol are Claire’s favorites for the belly - a castor oil pack and stimulation of digestive and abdominal reflexology points/areas to round out this Nurturing the Belly session.
In this course you will learn:
To identify the abdominal organs through palpation
The digestive organs and their function
To locate the associated reflexology areas for the digestive system.
To identify pathologies indicated and contraindicated for abdominal massage
To identify muscles located within or crossing through the abdominal cavity.
To target specific abdominal organs to offer a therapeutic massage of that organ.
To stimulate reflexology areas in tandem with abdominal anatomical areas.
A complete protocol for a therapeutic abdominal massage.
