Prenatal Massage Therapy


Prenatal Massage Support throughout pregnancy has many benefits. With so many changes happening in your physical and emotional body in a relatively a short amount of time, massage can offer the needed support. Aches and pains soothed away, less swelling and puffiness are just some of the benefits. Circulation support, reducing pelvic pain, stress reduction all help Mom and baby prepare for an easier transition through labor, birth and postpartum.

I have been trained in many types of prenatal massage, I have had advanced training as an Arvigo Prenatal Therapist as well as my education as a trained Doula, Ayurvedic Women’s Health Specialist and Certified Arvigo Abdominal Therapist. I can offer you support through out all stages of your pregnancy. I also provide and work with when possible, “The Body Cushion” which allows for optimal positioning for growing bellies of ALL sizes!
