Pregnant women and new parents coping with the physical, emotional, and social stresses accompanying childbearing.

Children of all ages, from newborns to adolescents, and young adults as well. For newborns, massage can promote healing from birth experiences, restful sleep, weight gain, and aid in digestion thus reducing colic.

What can I expect when I receive a massage?

Upon arrival, you will fill out a brief medical history form. This will be kept on file and confidential. We provide a comfortable, quiet atmosphere to help achieve the maximum benefits of the massage. The massage table and room temperature are warmed to suit your preference. Together with the massage therapist, you will begin to calm the mind and relax the body. During the massage you will be draped with a large sheet. Your modesty is always respected.

Should I wear clothing when I get a massage?

This is always an optional preference left up to the individual obtaining the massage. We suggest that you do not wear under clothing as the therapist can work more efficiently. Rest assured that the therapist will always respect your modesty.
