Comforting

If you are pregnant, you deserve a massage. 

Prenatal Massage Therapy

Prenatal Massage Therapy aids in the relaxation of the body and mind during your pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time when your body undergoes a transformation as you foster and nurture a new life. It’s also a period of strain on your body and may lead to exhaustion, discomfort, and lack of sleep. If you’re pregnant or planning to conceive, consider prenatal massage therapy as an integral part of your prenatal wellness plan. My prenatal massage sessions will dramatically improve your circulation, enhance relaxation, and reduce swelling in legs and ankles.

“I have worked with birth and pregnancy for many years. I understand that it requires a gentle touch and a deep level of communication between my client and myself.”
