This advanced workshop for Abdominal Therapy professionals is founded on the work of Dr. Rosita Arvigo, and her mentor Miss Hortense Robinson. It is sponsored by the Abdominal Therapy Collective and eligible for 28 CEUs from NCBTMB.

You’ll master bodywork techniques to support clients throughout pregnancy  – minimizing pain and discomfort. You’ll learn to mobilize the sacrum and reduce tension in the pelvic floor to facilitate a smooth labor and birth. You’ll discover new ways to support clients in their postpartum year and cesarean recovery.

Gather with a group of experienced practitioners to deepen your knowledge and enhance your bodywork skills. As always, there will be heart-opening, laughter & song.
