Maternity Massage Sessions (pre and postnatal)
Prepares you for healthy fertility and conception and keeps you well through pregnancy and postpartum. Massage supports mom & baby physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually preparing them for birth and life with relaxation and pleasure. It boosts your overall system and balances the body to avoid or relieve common (common does not mean normal/healthy!) pregnancy complaints such as pelvic and back pain, nausea, swelling, fatigue, insomnia, heartburn, headaches. Pelvic alignment and intraoral massage are also paramount to readying moms body for labor and maintaining health postpartum and can be added into any session. The positioning used for massage promotes restful sleep and optimal fetal positioning for labor readiness. Enjoy improved immunity, more energy for mom and baby, increased pelvic stability while reducing stress, tension, fear, anxiety/depression. Receiving nourishing touch also fills the well a mother gives from and helps her tune deeply into her intuition during this paramount time... Read more on maternity and doula services here.

Welcome Home - A Mother Warming is similar to a postpartum ritual called Closing the Bones originating in Mexican and South American midwifery care. This service is essential support for the new mother. It can be a series of massages or a single service which is done once her lochia ceases.
The series begins with restorative massages with a warming oil focusing on mom's abdomen and pelvic girdle and can include pelvic and abdominal binding for supportive healing beginning shortly after birth (typically within the first week)
The final or one-time service is done once mom's lochia ceases and includes postpartum warming or nursing tea and foot bath, a full-body massage with pelvic assessment and rebalancing that includes warming abdominal massage, specialized reflexology, acupressure and aromatherapy. Mom's pelvis is wrapped securely* and warmed with a hot stone. These services provide much needed maternal support and healing on many levels.
