This course will introduce therapists to gynecological cancers as well as the depth and breadth of the benefit of bodywork for clients who are being treated for these cancers.
The day will include lecture material where we will identify and discuss the types of gynecological cancers, standard approaches to treatment, and the physical/emotional repercussions of treatment. In addition, we will describe in detail the various postural imbalances and complaints reported by these clients. The hands-on portion will involve the demonstration of techniques applicable to various complaints and disease progression.
Therapists will leave this class with the ability to design effective, safe, and therapeutic treatment plans.
