Aquasoma® for Pregnant Women -2, Brussels (BELGIUM) 4-5/11 2023
AQUASOMA® FOR PREGNANT WOMEN COURSE DESCRIPTION - module 2
Aquasoma® during pregnancy – module 2
From 40 weeks of gestation onwards, women may seek a session to promote the natural onset of labour. Is there anything special to consider in this case? In the second module of the course we will look at this in detail.
The effective and safe use of flotation devices, such as soft noodles and floating collars, will allow you to complete the techniques learned in the first module. You will therefore be able to cover each specific objective of your sessions with pregnant women, giving each part of their body the time and calm that it really needs.
You will also learn specific bodywork techniques to focus on the lower extremities - legs and feet.
At the end of the course you will have the chance to offer/give a full practice session to a pregnant woman in the safe environment of the course and receive her valuable feedback.
