Couples Massage for Pregnancy
Prenatal Massage Techniques
Massage can help relive many pregnancy-related aches and pains as well as support circulation and offer stress relief.
Couples massage during pregnancy has the added benefit of supporting connection and communication with your partner during a potentially tumultuous period in your lives that you are not experiencing in identical ways.
The Breathing Space Prenatal Massage Techniques workshop is a hands-on class covering the basics of massage applied to the pregnant body.
You need not attend class as a “couple,” but you will need to bring a partner with you. Friends, family members and significant others are all equally welcome!
Class is appropriate for all body types and abilities, but please contact us for approval prior to registering if your pregnancy is considered high risk.
