Prenatal Massage

Bodywork for any stage of pregnancy. Techniques may include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point. Lymph Drainage, and Myofascial Release according to client preference and needs. Typical discomforts of pregnancy such as low back and pelvic pain, swelling, and carpal tunnel-type pain can be addressed.

Postpartum Massage

Bodywork for the particular challenges of recovering from birth while caring and feeding a new baby. Issues are quite varied during this time so the session is tailored to the individual. Whether neck pain from gazing down at baby; chest or breast pain; or lumbo-pelvic discomfort, a variety of techniques are employed to meet the needs of this special and intense stage of life.

Women’s Wellness Massage

Bodywork with a focus on issues specific to women’s health, whether related to the breasts or abdominal or pelvic organs. Lymphatic drainage, gentle visceral work, and standard massage techniques can all be employed as needed to address pain and discomfort related to a variety of causes including cycle-related, chronic conditions, or functional problems.

Breast or Chest Work

Bodywork for any of a spectrum of complaints involving the chest or breast tissues. Deep or light touch approaches may be used to address problems related to surgery, binding, cycles, or newborn feeding. Work can performed bare or draped depending on whatever feels most comfortable.

New Baby

Baby bodywork aims to help release restrictions acquired during the last weeks before birth or during the birth experience. The work is rooted in craniosacral and myofascial unwinding techniques, so the touch is light, the work is gentle, and nothing is forced. Intraoral work available for babies with feeding challenges, regardless of feeding method.
