What to Wear

Loose comfortable clothing is preferable. If you wish, you can massage over clothing (a thin baggy T shirt works best), there is no expectation for you to reveal your belly if you don’t want to.

What to Bring

Please bring a couple of pillows to support your head and neck so you can see your abdomen when massaging it, and a small towel to tuck into your clothing so you don’t get oil on them. If you have any allergies please bring your own oil otherwise coconut oil will be provided on the day.

Who can attend?

You should be at least 8 weeks postnatal with a healed scar to attend the workshop. There should be no open areas, scabs, oozing or bleeding from your wound. You will benefit at any stage after birth, even if you are years postnatal. We allow for small numbers per workshop to give adequate focus to each individual.
