Services for Mommy & Baby
we are very concerned with the well-being of the mother throughout all
stages of pregnancy, we are pleased to have a Certified Massage
Therapist available who's been trained in advanced "Nurturing the
Mother" techniques, which include Fertility, Prenatal & Postpartum Massage.
Our "Nurturing the Mother" Specialist Jill John can discuss your specific goals for the treatment before your first massage. That way the therapist can focus on getting the tension out of specific muscles and elevating your sense of relaxation.
Pregnancy places strong demands on a woman's body, making it an ideal time for her to be cared for and pampered. This gentle technique, given as the expectant mother rests in a side-lying position, is designed to relieve tension & aches from the extra weight and shift in the center of gravity, reduce swelling, soothe the nervous system, lessen fatigue & even enhance energy. Circulation is also improved, aiding the supply of vital nutrients and oxygenated blood to both mommy and child. These benefits provide comfort and well-being for mom & baby-on-the way.
Recommended anytime after the 1st trimester.
Prenatal Massage acts as a natural way to ease body aches since women are discouraged from taking traditional pain-relievers during pregnancy. After the first trimester, a series of Prenatal Massage sessions are recommended every 2-4 weeks so that the cumulative effects have a chance to take hold & become more profound. For an appreciative momma-to-be, the chance to be pampered with nurturing touch makes this one "mother" of a massage!
PS--To expand the nurturing experience even further you may want to consider adding a Cocoa Butter Belly Rub!
Better Belly Body Butter Rub ~ $15
Try saying that 3 times fast! Although the name may be a tongue-twister, this
service is ideal for ladies who desire to take the nurturing to the
next level during a Prenatal Massage session. It can benefit clients
with PMS cramping, IBS or other abdominal issues. This soothing
stomach massage incorporates rhythmic kneading & soft circular
strokes, along with your choice of Cocoa Butter Cream, Body Butter or
scented essential oils. Many women believe that regular use of Cocoa
Butter minimizes the appearance of stretch-marks on their torso, plus
it feels incredibly soothing when applied through gentle massage. Your tummy will treasure this tranquil treat!
Fertility Goddess Massage
In some cases infertility has been linked to high stress levels, which is an area where Therapeutic Massage can be of benefit. Many couples trying to conceive go through several different rituals that can indirectly cause elevated stress levels.
Regular Fertility Massage treatments can significantly reduce stress levels and increase relaxation. So when investigating Massage Therapy treatments, you can focus on reducing tension, increasing relaxation & decreasing stress.
Our Fertility Massage sessions are made up of a combination of techniques designed to bring about a highly relaxed state, which is often conducive to conception-- techniques include CranioSacral holds to balance the body's energy meridians and mind/body connection, stimulation of the foot Reflexology acupressure points related to the reproductive organs, gentle abdominal massage and hip stretches & the use of aromatherapy heat packs to relax the tummy & pelvis muscles.

Energy Balancing Therapy received during the early stages of pregnancy may help to reduce tiredness and morning sickness.

Energy Therapy can also ease potential fears & anxieties that can occur during the course of a pregnancy, up to and including, the birth process. Energy Therapy provides an oasis of calm during an especially emotional time in a woman's life & gives a much needed sensation of peacefulness. This quiet, reflective time that occurs in a session, along with with the positive energy brought about, can create a powerful bonding experience between mother & child. Energy work may even be done before conception for a woman who intends to become pregnant. Females trying to conceive may benefit from the relaxation & stress-relief that an Energy Balancing session provides.
Mum's the Word Postpartum Massage~
Massage is not only good before childbirth, but also afterwards. Postpartum Massage focuses on restoring the woman's body to its pre-pregnancy condition. Massage plays an important part in the restoration of the abdominal muscle wall and the uterus to its normal state. It helps realign the body weight to its original distribution and tones the over-stretched areas of skin over the belly.
As with all massages, it relieves muscle tension and stress from everyday activities, especially new mothering duties. It not only helps restore the physical body to the new mom, but it also helps to revive her emotional state. The loving touch of hands can provide a time to relax & reflect for the new mother, and helps to get her through the postpartum blues. When the mother feels good about herself, it is easier to meet the needs of her newborn.
