Bodywork and Massage for Pregnancy and Postpartum

I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Illinois.  I'm trained in Eastern massage techniques that include Tui Na, Pregnancy Thai Massage and Dynamic Body Balancing.  I believe that bodywork is deeply interconnected in traditional childbirth because its benefits have been time-proven; the healing power of touch cannot be denied.  As a mother of four children I know first-hand the physical demands that our bodies go through while pregnant, this is why I offer competent and compassionate bodywork.  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.     

General Benefits of a Massage

A pregnant ​body goes through many changes during pregnancy, and some can be uncomfortable and stressful.  Pregnancy massage is tailored specifically to the needs of the pregnant individual and their changing body. All techniques are adjusted accordingly to help decrease stress and promote relaxation. 

  • Reduce stress and fatigue

  • Increase circulation and muscle flexibility

  • Provide relief from headaches, stiff neck, backaches, sciatica, and sore feet

  • Improve relaxation and better sleep

  • Decrease swelling and fluid retention

  • Speedier healing during postpartum recovery
