More about us

We offer effective, individualized massage therapy treatments in the comfort of your home, with expertise in perinatal care.

Support for pregnancy loss and infertility

Gina is a mama through adoption after years of unsuccessful pregnancies and fertility treatments. Pregnancy does not come easily to all of us. You deserve care and comfort during this time. Your body and mind deserve to be healed so that you can continue to move towards creating your family. Massage can help to relax the nervous system and relieve the tension in your muscles and can be a peaceful moment where you can focus on healing your heart.

Your therapist will bring everything necessary – massage table, linens, and relaxing music. We ask that you prepare an open space at least 8’x5’ for us to set up. If the person receiving the massage would prefer to stay in a hospital bed or a comfy recliner, please clear the space around the furniture, including behind, so we can easily access each area.
