By its obvious merits, the bodyCushion has made its way through the healing arts.

As reviewed in MASSAGE THERAPY JOURNAL: "This DVD is like a reference book for pregnancy massage where you can look up conditions (for example, diastasis recti) and find out how to work with clients with these conditions. But rather than just a description on the flat page, you get a demonstration by the teacher. The teacher is Leslie Stager, a licensed massage therapist and registered nurse who has served as a labor and delivery nurse, childbirth educator and midwifery clinic nurse. She generously shares her expansive knowledge and skills on this sophisticated video, elegantly produced by Real Bodywork. Stager leads you through all aspects of pregnancy massage. As she discusses the physiological changes of the mother’s body, they are revealed from the inside using computer enhanced models of the progressing pregnancy. Stager demonstrates massage methods using side-lying and semi-reclining positioning as well as techniques for a full list of conditions that might develop such as sciatica, shortness of breath and edema. Her presentation style is easy to follow and comprehend. This DVD even includes physician referral and client intake forms you can print from your computer to use in your practice. I highly recommended this DVD."
