Therapeutic Massage Therapy

Natural Induction Massage + Acupressure

Labor preparation and induction massage can be done around your due date to help the body prepare for labor.  Acupressure induction points help raise oxytocin levels to stimulate the body to shift into labor; however, the body and baby must be ready for this type of massage to stimulate labor. If the body or baby is not ready, the induction massage will still help the cervix to ripen, efface and dilate, but likely won't stimulate labor until your baby and your body is ready.


Postpartum Massage

Postpartum massage can begin 6 weeks after having your baby and is a powerful way to help restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state and is designed to address the stress of caring for a newborn.


Benefits of postnatal massage:

  • Decrease the stress and fatigue from birth and caring for a baby

  • Aids your rectus abdominal muscles to come back together to treat/prevent diastasis recti

  • Eliminate muscle and body soreness

  • Improve posture by treating imbalances that occur from feeding and caring for a baby

  • Improves sleep

  • increases milk production through relaxation and increasing circulation

  • Decrease postpartum depression

Massage services are available to address all of your prenatal needs, natural induction of labor if you have reached your due date, and postpartum needs including reducing diastasis recti (abdominal separation) and your "belly bulge".

Our extensively trained certified prenatal massage therapist will provide a safe, relaxing, and effective massage tailored to your needs that is beneficial for both you and your baby, while easing the common discomforts of pregnancy.  Many women are often disappointed by the lack of pressure they get during a "prenatal massage" but our therapist has had years of experience and isn't afraid to give deep, appropriate massage pressure to meet all of your needs.
