C-Section, Hysterectomy and Abdominal Scar Immersion

C-Section, Hysterectomy and Abdominal Scar Immersion

Introducing this brand new LEARN ANYWHERE/STAY HOME VERSION of this best-selling offering from Burrell Education dedicated to supporting women who have birthed via C-Section, experienced a Hysterectomy and other Gynaecological/Female Surgeries that involve abdominal incisions.  This now VIRTUAL CPD aims to go further for the Soft Tissue Therapist serving and wanting to serve women in the sometimes challenging recovery period.

Unlike other offerings, we won't only focus on the hands-on skills and indeed this education has additional KEY elements:

  1. Your education on the how's and why's of the major procedures so that you have a firm knowledge base to help educate your clients.
  2. The emotional/psychological response to these surgical interventions that inform how a woman recovers on not just a physical but a psychological level.  In this portion of the education we hear from the clinical practitioners involved in these surgeries and the experiences of women who have experienced these surgeries also.
  3. Creating a small group practical and education offering for your current and prospective clients in your community that extends beyond a 1-1 hands-on session with the client.  Because at some point, your clients might not need 1-1 and indeed every woman needs to know how to care for herself and your expertise can be more widely shared in a small group setting.

    Candidates Also Have Access To:

    1.  An ETERNAL ACCESS, COMPREHENSIVE Video Library detailing ALL techniques used within this education
    2.  A 'share with your clients' Self-Massage Scar, Abdomen, Water Retention and Constipation Video
    3.  A 'share with your clients' Anterior Lines Gentle Mobilization Video
    4.  Supportive Nutrition For Soft Tissue Recovery Video Presentation

Pre-Requisites For Attendance:   You must already be a full certified and insured Massage/Soft Tissue Therapist/Manual Therapist/Bodyworker (Any Discipline)
