Bodywork and Massage for Pregnancy and Postpartum

As a sobadora/traditional bodyworker, a Licensed Massage Therapist and now a partera/midwife I incorporate relevant techniques from various approaches including, 

Spinning Babies Breech Balancing, Dynamic Body Balancing, womb massage,craniosacral therapy, pregnancy thai massage, and rebozo massage.

I offer competent and compassionate bodywork.  My approach as a bodyworker is holistic, integrative, body-centered, and trauma informed. My goal is to empower and educate you on the changes of your pregnant and postpartum body. The time I spend with you is your time to slow down, a time to feel connected to your body, your baby, a time for yourself.      

Benefits of a Body Balancing Massage

A pregnant ​body goes through many changes during gestation, some can be uncomfortable and stressful. While growing discomforts can be a normal part of pregnancy, pains is not. Pain, and long lasting discomforts can be the result of imbalance, pregnancy is not synonymous with pain.  Unlike general prenatal massage focus on only relaxing the client, the aim of a Body Balancing Massage is to restore balance and space, while resetting the nervous system.  Restoring balance and space will help ease pregnancy discomforts while preparing the body for a smoother labor.

Spinning Babies ® Aware Practitioner Breech Release,

ECV Consultation

Breech Release and ECV consultations are specifically tailored for individuals with a baby presenting breech. This part educational, part self-exploration, part body balancing massage consultation helps to bring balance to pregnant bodies, making space and encouraging babies to come head down. While bodywork and the Breech Protocol is enough to get most baby's head down, some baby's will not turn head down with only this approach. Nonetheless, body balancing and Spinning Babies Breech Release will go a long way in helping your body prepare for an ECV.
