I just had the most amazing Sunday! I had the privilege to attend a full day workshop on acupressure for pregnancy, labor, and postpartum issues.
Sunday morning I got up early (early for me, Sunday is a sleep in day when I’m not working!), and went from Woodland Hills to Venice. I was blessed with no traffic (if you know Los Angeles, you know what a miracle that is), and gorgeous sunny blue skies.
My DONA International approved workshop was held at The Sanctuary, in Venice and led by the fantastic and highly skilled Nicholas Olow. 9-5:30 was spent all on acupressure and comfort techniques to better serve my clients, and to help facilitate bonding and closeness between the birthing mother and her partner. It was a fantastic day, surrounded by awesome doulas and so much positive energy. Much knowledge was shared, and so much love, and energy filled the room.
I learned SO much. The workshop was hands on and absolutely wonderful. I went in with an open mind and fully expecting to enjoy it, but, I must say, it lit a fire to continue learning even more acupressure techniques. New skills to bring to my clients, new knowledge for me, and a new passion!
So amazing. I love my life!
