Abdominal Therapy for Professionals: Part 1, 4 day class

This is an experiential class, working holistically with mind, body and spirit.

This class focuses on the anterior part of Abdominal Therapy. It’s open to all professional therapists who hold a qualification in anatomy and physiology and are able to perform massage on clients within the legal requirements of their country.
 
While Abdominal Therapy for the anterior body is an effective stand-alone treatment, it is suggested that you complete Part 2, which allows both you and your client a greater insight and opportunity for whole body wellness.

The class begins by giving you tools for your own self-care. As you experience this work in your own body you will gain a unique perspective of Abdominal Therapy’s effective techniques. Having established this work through your own experience, you will then learn to apply these techniques in a professional capacity to be offered to your clients.

We offer a uniquely integrative approach to abdominal and pelvic health with focused anatomy and physiology webinars and in-person classes when it is safe and appropriate to do so.

On completion of this course you are welcomed into our Collective community and will be able to offer Abdominal Therapy immediately.
