Even though some will go the full nine-month without any difficulty and minimal discomfort, most women are able to feel the changes occurring in their bodies with unfortunately much ill ease.
Pregnancy massage can help alleviate some of the uncomfortable symptoms that come with carrying a child. Mother has the choice to lie on her side or on her belly with the use of a specialty pregnancy pillow designed to keep mother comfortable and baby safe. Most that use the pillow are amazed at how comfortable they are able to lay on their stomach and find it a treat to do so.
Pregnancy can be a beautiful thing…in the right hands!
INFANT MASSAGE COURSE
Studies have shown that massaging babies (premature especially) can increase food intake, weight gain and gastro-intestinal function. (Field, 1986). With massage, baby gets the chance to experience safe touch at a young age as well as increases development of tactile and visual responsiveness. And not only does infant massage help benefit your baby’s health, but it also helps strengthen the bond between baby and parent(s).
I have in the past given a course on how to massage their baby and am willing to do it again. I provide one on one teaching and give a small booklet to help you remember the techniques for once you are back at home. Infant massage can provide the opportunity for positive interaction with baby on all levels; see for yourself!

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, but if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Micro-Current Point Stimulation (MPS)
Scar tissue is more positively charged than normal skin. As a result of the positive charge, channels that allow movement in and out of the cell membrane can become blocked or impeded with an accumulation of waste products and the area is unable to heal and function normally.
MPS re-polarizes scar tissue so that cell membrane function is restored and adhesions due to abnormal electrical potentials are broken. As the skin relaxes, pain dissipates at the scar site and adjacent muscle tissue and joints.
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite. This modality is often incorporated with Swedish massage treatments in order to obtain even better results.
