Our goal is to offer options for our clients during this transitional time that are accessible and affordable so that they are able to come in as often as they need to, especially during pregnancy and as they get closer to birth! Over the years of specializing in this particular field, we have learned the importance of scheduling these sessions based on each individual client's "due" date (as they tend to need them more frequently as they get further along) but we also know this can be quite a dance for this specific kind of scheduling for the majority of our clients.
So we hatched an idea...
Discount Packages offer priority booking to schedule sessions 4 or 8 weeks in advance, based around your estimated due
date + your individual needs! If any sessions remain after the 4 or 8 week guideline, the paid amount is applied to that individual session (you would only pay the difference) if used within 6 months of purchase.

Benefits To Receiving Massage During Pregnancy
The hormones associated with relaxation can have a significant affect on reducing physical, emotional and mental stress during pregnancy (or any major life change). Having a self care routine that supports hormone regulation can reduce anxiety, cardiovascular health and even improve your mood. When we are in a relaxed state, the hormones associated with stress, like cortisol and norepinephrine, are reduced, and serotonin and dopamine levels are increased, this not only decreases stress during pregnancy but it can also support more positive birth experiences and less depression and/or anxiety after birth.
Pregnancy massage addresses and relieves some of the most common discomforts people often experience during pregnancy.
Edema, or swelling of the joints is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels by the growing uterus. Pregnancy massage helps to stimulate soft tissues to reduce collection of fluids in swollen joints and it improves the removal of tissue waste carried by the body’s lymph system. Many people experience sciatic nerve pain in late pregnancy because the uterus rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and low back which can cause tension on the muscles and pressure on the nerves. Many people report having less low back/hip pain after receiving prenatal massage. Massage therapy helps with inflamed nerves by releasing the tension on nearby muscles which can offer much needed relief. Massage during pregnancy can also ease upper and lower back discomfort caused by the changes happening in the front of the body.
Some other potential benefits of pregnancy massage include:
Reduced swelling and joint pain
Less muscle tension
Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles
Feeling more connected to pregnancy and baby
Some of the contraindications for pregnancy include:
There may be some mild conditions where you can still receive massage but we will ask that you speak with your health care provider and get a release form prior to coming in:
High risk pregnancy
Previous pre-term labor
Experiencing severe swelling, high blood pressure or sudden severe headaches
Infection or fever
