Presented by Chelsea Adams-Cook LMT
The Nurturing the Mother® Wise Woman Menopause Massage class is a delightful, fun and informative workshop to learn techniques and protocol for therapeutic massage in support of the powerful life changes a woman experiences in her peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopausal stages.
During this time in a woman’s life she can take charge of her body again, after decades of giving to her family and career. Women’s healthcare, especially for the aging female, is largely under-researched and unable to provide effective techniques for women to cope with their changing bodies.
This course will support the massage therapist in educating the client, along with addressing her areas of concern that may have largely been overlooked by most healthcare practitioners.
The symptoms addressed are:
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Loss of sleep
- Breast health
- Cardiovascular health
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Bladder control
- Memory loss
The session also includes:
- Gentle belly massage with castor oil packs to improve digestion
- Hair and scalp rejuvenation massage
- Facial massage to hydrate the tissue and reduce wrinkles
- Psoas focus to work the kidney and bladder meridians for the winter element
- Reflexology points for organ and hormonal stimulation
- Deep effleurage of the posterior body to complete the session with a soothing and relaxing effect
Students should bring their own sheets, pillows and lotions or creams. This class will also require students bring castor oil, a hot water bottle and a cotton pillowcase.
