Pre-Natal/Pregnancy Massage:  As a certified pre and post-natal massage therapist and mother, I know the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy.  The puffy, swelling feet and legs medically termed as edema.  Heartburn before and after eating....eating anything.  The lower back pain, stiff neck and leg cramps. These are the things we endure to bring our beautiful children into this world, but we do not have to.  As a trained pregnancy therapist, the massage strokes, pressure and relaxation of a massage will ease these discomforts to allow you to manage your days with ease.  Pregnancy massage also reduces mental and emotional stress as well as stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages lymph/blood circulation, relax the nervous system.  Pregnancy massage also can help relieve depression and anxiety in your pregnancy caused by hormonal changes.

 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage:  Did you recently have plastic surgery or had lymph nodes removed?  If so, you are at a high risk of developing lymphedema.  Lymphedema is a condition of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system, which normally returns interstitial fluid to the thoracic duct, then the bloodstream.  Tissues with lymphedema are at high risk of infection.  As a certified manual lymphatic drainage massage therapist, I can assist the movement of accumulated lymph fluid so it can drain through the proper channels.  Each session is 40 minutes long followed by a 20 minutes neck and should massage and stretches to assist in relaxation.  MLD results are best when performed once a day four or five times a week for two to four weeks.  However, some may see and feel the results after two or four sessions.  One study showed that the greatest reduction in swelling from lymphedema occurs in the first week of treatment and stabilizes during the second week. 

Infant Massage Instruction:

As a certified infant and child massage therapist, I offer professional massage techniques that will assist in your already bonded care of your infant and child.  Infant and child massage is a healing art to your baby's life.  A mother's, father's or siblings touch calms and soothes and shows love to their babies.  This type of massage regularly helps your baby and child develop a positive self-image and a sense of ownership of their body.  It can also assist babies and massage giver with releasing tension, easing discomfort and premature children with weight gain and improving breathing function.  With these easy to follow instructions, you can develop an even closer bond to your child while adding all benefits of massage therapy while reducing colic, easing muscle tension from your growing, developing baby and allow you both to get more sleep and reduce anxiety.
