First Trimester Massage: Soothing gentle strokes to relieve stress and worry during this emotionally and physically challenging phase.
Second Trimester Massage: Deeper, more focussed work to support your rapidly changing body and posture. Help prepare your body for the challenges of the third trimester.
Third Trimester Massage: Continue with deep tissue work to address any postural issues and to create space and movement throughout your body. Focus on releasing the pelvis to help prepare for childbirth while allowing you to rest and get centered for motherhood.
Labor Prep and Induction Massage: a luxurious 90 minute treatment appropriate during weeks 37 through 42. Acupressure and aromatherapy to encourage your body towards the labor process. Focused deep tissue work to release pelvis so that your baby can engage and descend with ease.
Postpartum Massage for New Moms (and Partners too!): Massage will help relive any aches and pains in your pelvis, back, neck or shoulders after a long or difficult labor. Compassionate touch greatly soothes the baby blues. Supportive strokes improve muscle tone so that you can feel good in your postpartum body. Taking the time to nurture yourself will give you a second wind and allow you to be a better, more loving parent and partner.
Massage has many benefits as well as pleasures for the expectant and new mother. The usual aches and pains of pregnancy (low back, sciatica, neck and shoulder, carpel tunnel, swelling, etc.) are generally dismissed as "part of the process." Massage can greatly improve all of these conditions. I work with my clients on their side or in a semi-reclined position, so that you and baby are both safe and cozy. After an hour long session, you will feel more comfortable in your pregnant body and more connected to your unborn child. As a bonus, because of the pregnancy hormones, your muscle tissue is more relaxed and pliable than ever before, making the second and third trimesters a perfect time for you to address any chronic problems you may have.
