During pregnancy, prenatal massage offers relief from physical discomforts such as sore hips, tense shoulders, swollen feet, and an achy low back. With my wide array of pillows and bolsters to support the body, most clients coming in for pregnancy massage feel more comfortable on the table than they do in their own beds!
Massage helps to decrease mom’s stress level and to prepare her body for childbirth—thus helping bring happier, healthier babies into the world. After birth, moms benefit from postpartum massage as their bodies adjust to feeding and carrying a new baby. I feel confident working with pregnant and postpartum women, thanks in part to my advanced prenatal massage training.
