Postnatal Massage Therapy

The process of childbirth is a strain on the whole body, particularly the abdomen, lower back and hips. Upper back tension is also very common while learning to care for a newborn. Many benefits of Postnatal Massage include an increase of blood and oxygen to your muscles, getting rid of the toxins. It also said to improve your recovery, well-being and most importantly, massage will help you feel relaxed. Massage encourages the body to release endorphins – the natural painkillers and feel good hormones secreted by the brain. It can also help you sleep better. Massage can improve mood and lower stress levels, helping you cope with the baby blues or postnatal depression. Postnatal massage will also give you some much needed time alone. The break will give you the strength to meet the many needs of your baby and home. However, if you aren’t ready to be gone from your sweet baby, we welcome mother’s bringing their newborns to the Studio with another support person who can stay with the baby in our relaxing Living Room , just paces away from where you will be receiving your massage. If you had a cesarean, you’ll need to be cleared by your care provider before receiving a massage.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Balancing

Biodynamic Craniosacral Balancing is a gentle, profound non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed and the touch is generally light and still. The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, especially the nervous system. This is the system that dictates all of the body’s functioning, constantly sending and receiving information.

Private Infant Massage Sessions with Jenny

After learning Infant Massage, parents report feeling more comfortable and confident in their ability to care for baby and understand and respond to baby’s cues. Infant Massage is one of the most natural and pleasant methods of providing important early nurturing and is an amazing tool for helping parents become closer to their babies. There are many benefits to massaging your baby, such as: the release of oxytocin, known as the love hormone, in both parent and child; releases prolactin which promotes milk production in the mother; and endorphins, which support bonding, relaxation and growth. Infant Massage helps babies handle sensory stimulation and helps caregivers respond in a more relaxed manner to baby’s needs. It aids in better sleep, by assisting in the regulation of the sleep/wake cycle and stimulates all the systems of the body (nervous, circulatory, respiratory, elimination and immune). Most importantly, it’s fun!

90 Minutes: $100
