- It’s Safe!
Each session is customized for your needs and any special circumstances. It’s safe for women in each trimester, and helps with the different issues you face as your body changes. With your approval, we’ll communicate with your healthcare providers to ensure the most consistent care possible.
- It’s Comfortable
We use different positioning techniques in each trimester. You’ll love the Side-lying positioning system—most clients want to take it home! And it reduces low-back pain and strain better than belly-down tables with a hole!
- It’s Just For Pregnant Women
I know how to keep you safe and comfortable, and how to address the most common ailments pregnant women face. Most spas or traditional massage therapists shy away from working with pregnant women because they don’t have the experience or technique. I have 14 years of training and experience to bring in the service of your needs.
- It’s Not a Luxury
You always hear you should put on your oxygen mask before you help others. Taking care of yourself during pregnancy is critical! Finding time to relax, decompress and get pain relief is important in every trimester! And the more you go, the less it costs—packages help to bring down the cost per massage.
- It Reduces Stress and Helps You Relax, which is better for you and baby.
Spending time in a parasympathetic (relaxed) state helps with fluctuating hormones, difficulty breathing, gastrointestinal distress and contributes to a sense of general well-being for mom and baby.
- It Reduces Edema and Lowers Blood Pressure
Which helps prevent varicose veins and more serious complications
- It Prepares You for Active Labor
Massage therapy helps you develop awareness of tight muscles, improves strength and flexibility, and helps with endurance.
- It Contributes to Shorter, Less Painful Labor and Reduces Labor Complications, Medication and Interventions
Studies show that maternal anxiety contributes to labor complications and interventions. Massage Therapy is shown to significantly reduce anxiety and stress.
- Helps you be the best mom you can be, with more support and nurturing
- It encourages more loving touch, less violence and world peace!
