Massage During Pregnancy, Fourth Edition

Massage During Pregnancy - Third Edition book coverBette Waters

The first book ever written for the Therapeutic Massage Profession has been updated for 2010. The material in the research study outlined in the book "Ice Massage for the Reduction of Labor Pain," was published in the Journal of Midwifery and Women's Health, Sep/Oct 2003, and in 2009 was chosen to appear in the book Midwifery Best Practice, Vol. 5.

Since its first edition in 1995, this book has taken on a life of its own as a textbook for colleges who teach massage, as a home study program for massage therapists, and as a guide book for pregnant women. The home study is approved by NCBTMB and the State of Florida for 12 hours of Continuing Education.

The research in this edition has been updated. The chapter on postpartum has been expanded to include a tool for the pregnant client to use in making plans for after the baby is born that can be developed into a marketing freebie for the therapist.

The Frequently Asked Question chapter is enlarged. All the original graphics are there with some new ones. The cover has been given an exciting update by graphic designer, Jonathan Fackler.

Massage During Pregnancy, First Edition

Massage During Pregnancy - First Edition book coverBette L. Waters

The first book ever written about pregnancy and massage. Bette Waters is a Certified Nurse-Midwife. Her husband was a licensed massage therapist who was taught very little in his massage college in 1990. Waters and her husband owned a massage facility. This book was first a three day seminar taught by the couple. They could accommodate only 20 students at a time. Later Waters turned the seminar into this book first published in 1995.

Waters contacted Paul St. John, LMT, the developer of Neuromuscular Therapy, whom she knew only by reputation. He was excited about the project. She sent him the eight chapters she had finished and he wrote a wonderful introduction to the book.
