Abdominal Therapy for Professionals_PT 1.jpg

September 13-16, 2021
La Crosee, WI

Our professional development courses are experiential, working holistically with mind, body and spirit.

This class focuses on the anterior part of Abdominal Therapy. It’s open to all professional therapists who hold a qualification in anatomy and physiology and are able to perform massage on clients within the legal requirements of their state or country.

The professional development course begins by giving you tools for your own self-care. As you experience this work in your own body you will gain a unique perspective of Abdominal Therapy’s effective techniques. Having established this work through your own experience, you will then learn to apply these techniques in a professional capacity to be offered to your clients.

On completion of this course you are welcomed into our Collective Community and will be able to offer the techniques you have learned immediately.


You will learn:


  • The history and lineage of Abdominal Therapy.

  • How to perform Your Abdominal Massage (YAM).

  • Abdominal and pelvic anatomy and physiology.

  • Common signs and symptoms of pelvic and abdominal conditions.

  • How to perform Abdominal Therapy on your client’s anterior body.

  • The importance of the emotional body on physical function.

  • How to complete our Health Story consultation form.

  • How to apply supportive techniques for specific pelvic and abdominal conditions.

  • How to teach your client YAM and other supportive modalities.

  • How the Abdominal Therapy Collective supports you to grow your business.
