*Travel To Services: If you have pets, please make sure that they are kenneled during the massage or that you have an area to receive massage away from your pets. If you live in a smoking home, unfortunately, I will not be able to travel to your home. Pets & smoke can cause permanent damage to my expensive equipment.

Neuromuscular Re-Education, Body Insight Therapy is a deep tissue method that works within your comfort level of pain & in cooperation with your body’s natural ability to heal itself. It is extremely helpful for those that want lasting relief administered within their individual pain tolerance, no bruising & minimal soreness afterwards. It effectively treats chronic muscle pain, tension patterns & headaches, aiding in regaining movement & flexibility.
Prenatal massage is nurturing bodywork that has special considerations for the emotional and physiological changes experienced during pregnancy. It enhances every system in the body to function optimally. Prenatal massage helps regulate hormones, reduces stress, anxiety and depression. It improves muscle, nerve and joint pain, reduces swelling/edema and improves sleep. Prenatal massage is intended to be deeply relaxing for you and your baby. Neuromuscular Therapy is incorporated into sessions as needed to relieve muscle & joint pain commonly experienced during pregnancy.
Postpartum Massage is deeply restorative bodywork that helps the new mother to integrate the challenges of having a newborn and recover from labor & birth. Postpartum massage is catered to your needs, specific to your aches & pains, based upon your labor & birthing circumstances, lochia flow, if you are breastfeeding & your emotional state. This nurturing bodywork can also include Neuromuscular Therapy as needed for specific muscle & joint pain commonly experienced as the body returns to pre-pregnant states.
Cesarean Scar Massage Technique
Learning to care for your body post Cesarean involves more than basic wound care. This is a major abdominal surgery that has special considerations & holds a different time frame for healing than a vaginal birth. Massage is an essential component to the emotional & physical healing after Cesarean. Learning to massage your Cesarean scar will help you to reconnect to this vital area of your body. This is a specific massage technique to help break-up and decrease the scar tissue associated with c-section incision. Massaging this area will increase the circulation, which naturally increases healing. Using vitamin E oil and applied within your comfort level of pressure, I offer this service to those that would like further instruction. In my helpful videos section, there is a how to massage your c-section scar instructional video.
Uterine Massage increases circulation within the uterus, fallopian tubes, abdominal organs and aides in balancing hormones & increasing fertility. With consistent application, it aides with decrease in cystic fibroids, scar tissue, PCOS. For more information on Uterine Massage.

Honoring Your Childbearing Year
~Traditional Postpartum Care~
Postpartum practices are alive & well around the world, but are unfortunately, often absent & or lacking in our Western society. The necessity of these care practices isn't common knowledge & are therefore seen as a luxury. Postpartum women within our western society are more often then not struggling through this transition, burdened with an unrealistic expectation of motherhood, being superwoman & going it alone. This was never our design, to raise our babies & children exhausted, alone, poorly nourished & isolated from community of other families. The traditional practices that I offer tend to what Rachelle Garcia Seliga calls the 4 pillars of care; Rest, Warmth, Nourishment & Bodywork, cemented into the foundation of Community Support. Each one of these pillars tend to the restoration of mother physically, emotionally, mentally & nutritionally. The community resources & support groups tend to mothers Social needs, which are a VITAL component of mental health during this transition. These ensure that mothers have tools to connect with other mothers & local providers as postpartum needs arise. Though very simple, the effects of these practices are profound on the healing mother, her family & her community. A healthy, restored, happy heart, mind & body will make the world a better place.
Warmed Oil Massage; Nurturing massage performed with warmed sesame oil aides the body by increasing circulation, encouraging detoxification & physical healing. Approximately 1 hour. Daily practiced, self warmed oil massage has many whole body benefits. For more information please visit Ayurveda Self-Massage.
Castor Oil Pack Treatment; A practice of using castor oil, heated with a hot water bottle to bring a deep level of warmth into the body & encourage circulation to your abdominal region; organs, intestines & uterus. Castor oil also softens scar tissue and aides in detoxing the body. These are easy to make & simple to use. I incorporate them into postpartum care for maximum healing benefits. For more information please visit WellnessMama.
Womb Meditation; Is a simple yet profound practice that aides in reconnecting to & making peace with this powerful part of our feminine bodies. This practice has the potential to heal us on a deep emotional level which contributes to our physical healing as well. Womb meditation is appropriate & healing for vaginal & cesarean birth, miscarriage, abortion & still birth. "I want all mothers to know that along with this responsibility also comes abundant medicine and creative vitality, and we can find our inherent healing potential if we go to the center of ourselves. How you birth does not define your mothering." Tami Lynn Kent-Mothering from your Center
Vaginal Steaming; The practice of steaming the vagina, cervix & uterus by squatting or sitting over a steaming stool, using everyday medicinal herbs prepared in boiling water, that aid in healing & detoxification. Steaming encourages further cleansing of the uterus. Vaginal Steaming is contraindicated for those with an IUD, current infection or wound that is still healing. For more information please visit https://www.soulvibrance.com/vibrant-living/yoni-steam
Closing The Bones; A simple yet profound postpartum practice found in many cultures but known by different names, of wrapping the new mother with comfortable compression to literally & metaphorically “close” her body. Gently rocking & sifting the pelvic bones helps to ease pelvic discomfort & realign bones. Reassuring words are spoken over the new mother to acknowledge her accomplishments during her childbearing year & to further encourage her motherly intuitions. This ceremony is appropriate & healing for vaginal & cesarean birth, miscarriage, abortion & still birth.
Nourishing Meal; Digestion naturally slows during pregnancy to allow the pregnant body to get all the nutrients possible out of the food eaten to nourish the growing baby. This slowed digestion continues into initial postpartum to allow mother's body to again glean all of the available nutrients to heal her body & contribute to a healthy breast milk supply. Whether breastfeeding or not; nutrient dense, warming, easily digested food is the best postpartum nutrition. A simple soup/stew with a bone broth/coconut milk base is what I offer postpartum mamas.
Drink; nourishing herbal teas full of trace minerals & vitamins specific to Postpartum healing.
*When purchasing the 3 day Nurturing Care Package; you will receive one big pot of Postpartum Stew & 4-6 quarts of bone broth. You also receive a 1/2 quart sized bag of loose leaf tea.
*When purchasing the Honoring Ceremony; you will receive one meal of Postpartum Stew & 1 quart of bone broth. You also receive enough loose leaf tea for 2-3 cups.
Connecting with other mothers/families during the postpartum transition is VITAL to our mental, physical & emotional health & state of wellbeing. We were never meant to parent newborns & children alone. We need each other in the best way. I am very passionate about resourcing postpartum families & offer this to everyone without charge.
