Healing the emotional and physical body
The healing gift of touch during your pregnancy and postpartum recovery

Massage plays an integral part of prenatal and postnatal care. We know that touch "feels good" and science backs us up: skin stimulation mobilises "feel good" hormones that counteract  stress and oxytocin, the "bounding and loving hormone" that - among others - improves the functioning of the placenta as well as stimulates and speeds up contractions of the uterine wall, crucial both during childbirth and postpartum. The second trimester is the best moment to start receiving regular massages and you can book regular appointments until the end of your postpartum window; massage alleviates as well as releases the physical and emotional tensions stored in your tissues.

You are invited to elevate your care: starting with week 13 until week 34 you are welcomed to my practice space every 3 weeks to support you in fostering a new balance. As your due date approaches, you will find beneficial to receive a massage once a week: finding stillness and moving inward is what will benefit the most next to feeling relieved from aches.

Once you give birth I am happy to visit you to set you up and to offer the first care for the new mother: this is an important moment that will shift positively the rest of your postpartum time. After the first 2 weeks you are welcome to see me again in my practice space to receive on a weekly basis until the end of the Sacred Postpartum Window. After the first 40 days, for the first year, the advise is to support your process with a monthly visit.
