Pregnancy Massage
Growing a human is serious business! A mother's body goes through many physical and emotional changes during this magical and sometimes stressful time. Allow pregnancy massage to help Mama feel relaxed and confident as she prepares for birth and baby.                     

Postpartum Massage
You just spent nine months growing a human, gave birth, and are now swimming in the lakes of motherhood. After all that hard work Mama could sure use a massage. Though it may often seem difficult to fit into a busy schedule, postpartum massage therapy is one of the MOST beneficial things a new mom can do for herself, offering a speedier recovery from childbirth. Did you have a Cesarean birth? Massage also promotes the healing and breakdown of scar tissue.

“When Mama takes regular care of herself postpartum through massage, she is better able to care for her baby. Massage benefits Mamas recovery both physically and mentally. When she feels good, it is easier for her to meet the needs of her newborn.”

— Amanda Rayburg, LMT

Medical/Therapeutic Massage 
This type of massage therapy treatment is used to address any acute or chronic muscular injuries or discomforts. Compared to a relaxation or Swedish massage treatment, a medical/therapeutic massage treatment focuses on a particular problem area, for example a rotator cuff or low back issue. Deep tissue techniques, along with stretching, are often used during treatment. Depending on the severity of a muscular issue, weekly or bi-weekly treatments may be recommended. 

"Labor Induction" Massage Treatment 
*"Labor induction" massage is not guaranteed to induce labor.

Labor Induction Massage is for expectant mothers who are at 40+ weeks gestation.  Labor inducing acupressure points on clients feet, hands, and back are addressed along with a general relaxation massage at the end. Mamas partner, spouse, or support person are welcomed and encouraged to attend this treatment. By learning these points you can easily address them at home and continue to encourage the onset of labor.

Birth and Cesarean Birth Doula
Expecting a baby? Having a Doula is beneficial for both you and your partner during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. A Doula is your personal resource for all things birth and baby. I will work with you and your partner one-on-one to develop a birth plan, offer pregnancy, birth and postpartum support tools, and just to answer any questions you may have along the way.  As your Doula, I work only for you and your partner, not the hospital, birthing center or Midwife. I will attend your labor and birth offering support and working with your partner as a team to help keep Mama calm, cared for and confident so all she needs to focus on is having  baby.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re planning a natural birth, home birth, medicated birth, hospital birth, scheduled cesarean or VBAC, I offer options to support all families.”
