Pregnancy is an individual experience that is unique to you with each pregnancy. Massage can become part of the enjoyment of pregnancy and a key component in relieving the stress and strain also experienced. Relaxation, soft tissue and joint manipulation, mindful visualization, and segmental breathing will help to prepare for labour as well as promote wellness during the pregnancy and give you tools to decrease times of stress and discomfort.

Infant Massage

Infant massage promotes health and well being for infants and children at any age. It strengthens the bond between child and caregiver, improves non verbal communication through soft gentle eye contact as well as body awareness. It increases relaxation for both caregiver and infant and increases sleep duration and quality. It can provide a sense of routine, consistency and reliability within the child's day. For infants specifically, it increases their brain function and physical ability and provides them with a sense of calm and care.
