Prenatal massage is a wonderful way to support an expectant parent. Many people get prenatal massage, either because they received a gift certificate or as part of their regular self care. Massage may improve circulation, decrease body aches, reduce stress and improve sleep. I can also show you how to get really comfortable to make the most of the sleep you get before you wake to roll over or go to the bathroom.
Most of us experience new bodily aches after giving birth, however few get postpartum massage because they are tired, busy and can’t imagine getting out of the house let alone leaving their baby for the length of the massage. A postpartum massage received within a few days after delivery, before endorphins wear off, can help mitigate a new parent’s discomfort.
Here is where I come in. I will:
- Come to YOUR house (or hospital room) so you don’t need to go anywhere
- Carry your baby in a sling or wrap while you receive massage.You can also have the baby on the table with you if you prefer.
- Give you a full one hour massage even if it takes two hours to accomplish it. In other words, you can take a break to feed your baby or use the restroom, have some water, whatever you need to be comfortable and relaxed. You can feed your baby on the table while you are receiving massage too. Again, whatever it takes to make you comfortable.
- Customize your treatment to address your needs including self care techniques for pelvic floor recovery, cesarean recovery, hemorrhoid management, rectus diastasis and abdominal massage to encourage digestion and muscular recovery
I also see non-pregnant clients. I use a wide variety of techniques blended to meet your specific needs. Since totaling my own car when I was pregnant with my first child I have also developed my specialty of whiplash injuries in pregnant women.
