Breech Balancing: Advanced Prenatal Bodywork
Join me for 2 days of hands-on immersion to learn a variety of manual techniques to create space for better baby positioning.  Please, read the entire class description.
The first day we will go through the basics of creating space, techniques you can show your families to take home, how to find resources in your area of breech supportive providers, and assessments to determine what may be helpful beyond what you are able to provide.  The basic manual techniques are safe for a majority of people to do and receive, and can be done quickly (after a bit of practice).  We will go over basic ligament release, superficial fascial opening, relaxing the lower back, and posterior pelvis.  
The second day we will delve into advanced manual techniques to create mobility in the joints.  This day is designed for certified bodywork practitioners.  Only certified bodyworkers qualify for day 2 of Breech Balancing.  Participants for this portion of the class must have a functional, and solid knowledge of anatomy and physiology.  They also must already have an established practice of working with pregnant people. 
In this part of the course we will go into detail on releasing deeper tissues in the abdominopelvic cavity, the importance of working extremities when compensation patterns are present, and techniques to release the diaphragm, lumbar, sacrum and psoas.  

All 2 day participants need to take the full course.  The first four hours may be review for those who have taken Integral Touch of Birth, but review is always good.  
Continuing Education credits will be available through NCBMTB, the MN Chiropractic Board.  CEU's will only be awarded for full participation in the class, and pass grades on all assessments and quizzes. 

The CEU's do not give you the right to teach this class. 
Certificate of completion will be awarded on the same grounds as the CEU's.  The certificate of completion does not give you the right to teach this class.

Prenatal and Postpartum Psoas Care: Advanced Bodywork


Abnormal tone in the psoas muscles can create imbalances in the pregnant body that may contribute to discomforts and impact fetal position. While there are many approaches to “releasing” the psoas, many are aggressive, painful, and often counterproductive long-term. Come to learn to release the psoas during pregnancy without touching it and without pain. The need for respect and gentle approaches is particularly important with the pregnant body. In this hands-on intensive we will also work on techniques to unlock an immobile sacrum, and mobilize the lumbar spine. Equally important we will address how to rehabilitate the psoas postpartum as well, without causing pain to the client.

This workshop is ONLY for experienced, certified bodyworkers as the techniques taught can be harmful if inappropriately applied or if contraindications are present.  Absolutely no exceptions.

Prenatal and Postpartum Psoas Release Techniques:

  • The psoas is the deepest and most sacred muscle of the human body.Working with this muscle means touching the physical, emotional, and spiritual centers of the person you are working with on your table.
  • In this class you will learn a variety of techniques to create functional wellness in the psoas. Surrounding structures will be addressed as the psoas is influenced by its’ supporting soft and hard tissues. Some of the techniques covered will include: craniofascial unwinding, fascial release techniques, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, motor gamma neuron stimulation, and more.
  • By the end of the class you will have the tools to release a psoas without touching it physically, and be able to release it manually without causing pain to the person needing the assistance to access their psoas.

Who should attend: chiropractors, experienced, licensed bodyworkers​​


  • Practitioners who are experienced certified bodyworkers.
  • Must have a functional, and solid knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
  • Must already have an established practice of working with pregnant people.
  • Experience with fascia is a plus.

Register at Eventbrite.  Class is held in Duluth, MN at the Northern Lights Wellness Professional Education studio.
