wellness for you & baby

In the postpartum periodmassage therapy can facilitate recovery from birth through enhanced circulation and lymphatic drainage; alleviate muscle strain and soreness caused by labor and delivery; provide adjunctive treatment of hemorrhoids, bladder disorders, and post- episiotomy soreness with reflex massage; rehabilitate the skin, connective tissue, and musculature of the abdomen; promote structural realignment of the psoas and pelvic musculature; facilitate healing from cesarean section using connective tissue and scar massage techniques; address the physical stress of caring for a newborn; and provide nurturing and emotional support during the early postpartum period.

Receiving massage is highly beneficial for the pregnant & postpartum body to prepare for labor & recover after birth. Therapeutic touch can improve sleep patterns, encourage greater relaxation, alleviate stress on weight-bearing joints and soft tissue structures, increase circulation and decrease inflammation. More than just a treat, massage is a vital form of self-keeping both before & after pregnancy.
