Prenatal Massage

Allowing yourself to be pampered with a massage when your pregnant is one of the most wonderful self-care choices you can make, and you will find it is remarkably stress reducing and overall wellness promoting. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as leg cramps, backaches, stiff necks, sore hips and swelling. In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages the circulation of blood and lymph, helps to relax nervous tension — which aids in better sleep — and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy with Claire Davis

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a gentle form of compassionate touch that is soothing for both mom and baby before, during and immediately following the birth process. It unwinds and supports the structures and health of the nervous system aiding with breastfeeding issues and birth trauma. Claire can even practice her Cranio-Sacral therapy on the new mom while she breastfeeds her baby!

 

Ayurvedic Healing

Ayurveda approaches health from a whole-system perspective, treating the root cause of imbalance rather than treating the symptoms of disease. When the root cause is corrected, symptoms disappear. With the belief that all answers and medicine are found in nature, Ayurveda believes that health is the expression of a balanced relationship between our bodies, minds, spirits, and environment.

In fact, midwifery care is a wonderful option for your PAP Smear tests and physicals. Midwives are attentive and gentle treating everyone as an individual.

If we hope to create a non-violent world where respect and kindness replace fear and hatred, we must begin with how we treat each other at the beginning of life, for that is where our deepest patterns are set. From these roots grow fear and alienation or love and trust.
