Prenatal Massage

We want women all women expecting a baby to feel cherished and pampered.  Our prenatal massage offers undeniable physical benefits as well as this feeling of relaxation during any type of pregnancy.  This massage can help to relieve fatigue, enhance your sleep, and calm an active fetus. 


Craniosacral Massage

If you feel disconnected at your spine, this is a great massage for you.  You will rest, fully-clothed, on a massage table while the therapist conducts gentle assessments.  The therapist will also identify and correct sources of both pain and dysfunction, using gentle techniques to manipulate bones.  This combination will serve to offer the ultimate feeling of relaxation.
