Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is a wonderful and luxurious way to help your body adjust to the changes of pregnancy, promote homeostasis as well as prepare for labor. The ability to allow tired muscles to release and a busy mind to turn off are helpful skills to carry into labor and parenthood. It's also a wonderful time to connect with your growing baby. 

Swedish massage, deep tissue, acupressure and reflexology techniques are used during sessions as needed. Pregnancy massage is indicated for people in their second and third trimesters.

Some people have found success in receiving a labor invitation massage, done at 40+ weeks gestation, to help your body and baby welcome the labor process.

Postpartum Massage

Postpartum massage promotes a faster recovery after birth, helps relieve over­worked muscles and bring the pelvis & core back into balance. After your baby is born is a wonderful time to get bodywork because there is still a high level of the pregnancy hormone relaxin in your body, which makes muscular and structural changes more possible during this time – potentially creating lasting change in your body. 

Some people have their babies with them periodically through these sessions, and others have a friend or family member caring for their baby during the session. Either option, or a combination of the two, works for us. 

This is also a wonderful gift to give the postpartum family, or to add to your registry.

ARVIGO® THERAPY

DN2A1903.jpg

THE ARVIGO TECHNIQUES OF MAYA ABDOMINAL THERAPY®, help to restore the body to its natural balance through a series of non-invasive, external massage techniques, which help to guide the internal abdominal and pelvic organs back into their proper positions for optimum health and well being.

The techniques work by clearing congestion and blockages, releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen and pelvic bowl. This, in turn, improves the flow of energy and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems and prevents the progression of chronic disease.
