Nurturing Massage for Pregnancy is a textbook for massage students and certified massage therapists who treat clients who are pregnant or in labor, or who have recently given birth. The book focuses on general soft-tissue and Swedish massage and assumes the reader is already familiar with those techniques as well as the basics of kinesiology and anatomy and physiology. The book also integrates myofascial release and trigger point techniques, as well as occasional complementary bodywork methodologies, such as the use of breath and visualizations, acupressure, aromatherapy, and hydrotherapy.
