Women’s Health

(fertility massage, prenatal and postpartum, during labor)

Babies and children cared for as well. Infant massage is a specialty. During the nine months of pregnancy, women’s bodies undergo tremendous changes. All our therapists have extensive training and certified in the performance of massage for women and babies. The goals for a pregnancy massage are to help alleviate stress, promote relaxation and prepare muscles and joints for childbirth. In addition, there are specific techniques and movements which are designed to help relieve particular conditions, such as

  • Low back pain
  • Swelling of hands and feet
  • Cramps
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Sciatic pain
  • Sinus congestion, and many others

Massage in pregnancy is so essential for the mother and baby, and many patients consider it a necessary rather than a luxury. It is suggested that pregnant women receive massage once a week (or more) during the second trimester and twice a week (or more) during the third trimester.

We have found that massage keeps the body healthy, physically, medically and emotionally. Feeling healthy in all aspects make for a more pleasant pregnancy, health delivery and a happy baby.

We offer a doula massage during labor as well as postpartum massage. This is an extremely important time for both mother, baby and family members, and it lowers stress and increases milk production.
