Research shows that bodywork with a skilled practitioner trained in prenatal massage techniques can minimize discomforts of pregnancy, improve sleep and immune function and support disease prevention.
Massage after birth
Therapeutic massage offers deep relaxation, reduces cortisol (stress hormones), and aids in reducing pain and inflammation. We find that regular in-home massage can play an important role when mothers are experiencing insomnia, have postpartum edema or other complications and supports wellness and recovery for all new mothers.
Massage for newborn
Infant massage can provide numerous benefits to infants and their parents. Infant massage is proven to be helpful with fussy or high needs infants and infants suffering from gas, colic, or constipation. The massage reduces cortisol levels, improves immunity and supports neurological development. We provide newborn massage instruction for parents.
Massage for connecting
Massaging your infant builds confidence and attachment and is a useful tool when mothers and infants are struggling to connect or are rebounding from separation or a difficult beginning. Premature infants show greater progress in their growth and development when massage and touch are incorporated.
