Pregnancy Massage

Prenatal massage therapy is a wonderful addition to women’s prenatal care. The benefits of massage can improve overall prenatal health for many pregnant women and studies have shown prenatal massage to reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, improve labor outcomes and reduce labor duration. It is also the baby’s first introduction to safe and nurturing touch! Women can begin massage therapy at any point in their pregnancy. Special bolstering techniques are used during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters when lying flat on the back or stomach is no longer an option due to the growing baby. Massage therapy can be incorporated into any woman’s prenatal care routine as an emotional and physical health supplement proven to improve pregnancy outcome and maternal health.

Herbal Wrap

Purify, Relax, Refine

Herbal wraps are said to be the most detoxifying body treatments available—and they are deeply relaxing too. Choose herbs for soothing relaxation or detoxification. The herbal wrap will refine your skin’s pores and give your body an all-over glow. Discover serenity as you are bundled in warm, moist, herb-scented sheets and then cocooned in warm blankets. The herbal treatment tones your body while it calms your mind. This treatment will dissipate 2 to 5 pounds of water weight, so you will look and feel your best for that special event. Especially excellent when combined with deep tissue massage, before or after the wrap to enhance relaxation.
