Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can have profound effects on the overall health of the mother, relieving common pregnancy aches and pains as the body adjusts and prepares for labor. We will consult with you regarding your needs and take into careful consideration your current stage of pregnancy. We give prenatal massages in supported side lying and semi reclining positions. After careful research, we have concluded that prone tables for pregnancy are not appropriate for safely supporting the ligaments of the back and uterus. Your prenatal massage will address your physical tension and fatigue as well as emotional well being.
In addition to the therapeutic benefits of massage therapy, postpartum bodywork is an effective and holistic approach to the adjustments of motherhood. It has been known to assist with hormone regulation, pain relief, reduced swelling, better sleep and improved breastfeeding. It may also help with reducing post partum mood disorders. New motherhood is a demanding time, physically and emotionally , and we provide comfort and care to you to support your journey.
Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into myofascial (connective tissue) restrictions which are caused by various forms of trauma, to decrease pain and restore range of motion.
Craniosacral Therapy (Jenny only)
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the craniosacral system. For babies, CST can ease the tightness of the babies mouth, head and neck, which could support breastfeeding success. It can also help align the baby's body structurally and gets all the systems working properly (digestion, sleep, etc.).
Cupping Massage Services (Jenny only)
The sensation of a Cupping Massage is truly indescribable. People often experience deep warmth and a tingling sensation long after the treatment has ended. The action on the nervous system is sedating and people will often descend into a profound state of relaxation. By creating suction and negative pressure the cupping massage techniques are used to drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bringing blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin. This versatile method can easily be modified to address many health conditions.
Facial Cupping "Face Lift"
Facial cupping is done using customized cups that are specifically designed for treatments on the face, neck and upper chest. The reverse suction that is applied works to gently lift the facial tissues. As a result, the tissues receive a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients, and waste from the cells, and other harmful toxins, and substances are eliminated. Excess fluid is also drained and the facial muscles relax with the movement of the suction cups. This treatment has the added bonus of being a natural "Face Lift", relaxing tense facial muscles resulting in a softer, fresher appearance.
"Cocoon Wrap" Cupping Massage Treatment
After a stimulating yet gentle full body Massage Cupping treatment that works lymphatic movement and detoxification, you will be wrapped in warm blankets and allowed to rest for the last 15-20 minutes of the session. The very light suction provides drainage, and after the session, people report feeling lighter and have more energy.
Reiki (Lee-Ann only)
Reiki is a relaxing method of balancing the energy systems of the body. It works of several levels, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. You will leave a session feeling more relaxed and centered. By reducing stress, Reiki can help strengthen your immune system. Many clients report it helps with pain management. Frequently, you find the clarity you are seeking arrives during a session.

*Therapeutic Services Cancellation Policy
We appreciate that life can get crazy and that last minute cancellations may be necessary, therefore we allow ONE CANCELLATION with less than 24 hours notice without expecting reimbursement. We do, however, ask for HALF FEE if you cancel repeatedly without 24 hours notice, and FULL FEE is expected if you do not show for an appointment. We also will try to accommodate you if you are running late, but we will need to end sessions 15 minutes after the original scheduled end time, and full fee for the scheduled session is expected. We will need to reschedule if you are more than 25 minutes late and half fee is expected. We try to book time around clients' sessions for chatting and processing, but we require time in between appointments, so appointment times do need to be respected. If we need to cancel your appointment, we will work to reschedule you as soon as possible. If we are not able to give you advanced warning of a missed appointment, your next appointment with no fee. Thank you so much for understanding and respecting these policies.
