Pregnancy Massage Therapy
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), through the State Medical Board of Ohio (1998), and a member of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association). I have completed continuing education hours for Massage Therapy in prenatal and postpartum massage, massage labor support and infant massage. At this time I am only able to provide massage therapy services to my doula clients.
PRENATAL MASSAGE | $75
Studies indicate massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Prenatal massage is done in a side-lying position with pillows for support. Massage can begin at any time during pregnancy. Women with a high-risk pregnancy should consult with their caregiver prior to receiving massage. Please provide several pillows for support and a comfortable room for the session. I will provide linens, massage oil, music and massage table. (one hour in-home session)
POSTPARTUM MASSAGE | $75
Postpartum massage is performed with extra sensitivity given to your postpartum body's needs. Massage during the early postpartum period works to address muscle strain from breastfeeding, reducing muscle aches and joint pain from labor & birth and helps to ease your transition into new motherhood. Please provide a pillow for chest support, a music player and a comfortable room for the massage session. I will provide linens, massage creme, music and massage table. (one hour in-home session)
