Pain during pregnancy is common, but not normal.

No two pregnancies are alike. Throughout your pregnancy your body rapidly changes. Massage is a safe and effective way to treat discomfort, improve your sleep, decrease your stress levels, and so much more!

What would it mean to you if your body felt prepared for labour? How would it feel if instead of scrolling google in the middle of the night while your partner sleeps, you had a Doula-trained Registered Massage Therapist in your pocket, ready to answer questions and put fear to rest? Stress is one of the biggest contributors to pregnancy pain, so let's leave the facebook mom groups for planning walks and play dates and we'll address all your questions at your next massage appointment, shall we?

Support Cushions

No matter where you are in your pregnancy, I have the equipment to make you comfortable. Whether that's safely support laying face down or positioned on your side, ease your pregnancy discomforts and prepare your body for birth.

Pain in Pregnacy

During pregnancy it is common to experience lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain, hip discomfort, and overall deep-tissue sensitivity. After addressing any discomforts you have during treatment we can discuss changes or easy exercises you can do to manage any symptoms between appointments.

Exhaustion

Before I was pregnant, I hadn't gotten the memo that I wouldn't sleep through the night. Maybe it was the "getting up to pee" thing, or the "it took 3 minutes to roll over and now I'm awake" thing. Massage will lower your cortisol levels (stress hormone) and increase serotonin and dopamine (mood stabilizers).

Sara was super professional and knowledgeable. She made sure I was as comfortable as I possibly could be which is no small feat when dealing with pregnant women! She made sure to communicate everything very clearly and I left feeling very relaxed. She was also able to help address my rib pain, which is something I didn't really think was possible.The music selection was also lovely and relaxing.

I went to Sara because she has worked with many mothers-to-be, and has experience helping patients with Pelvic Girdle Pain. I liked knowing she had this as her background, as well as being a mom herself. I wanted a health care professional I can relate to for something so specific. In way of technique, I tend to prefer deep/sports style massage where I know the problem areas got worked on. If you are looking for someone who can massage deeply if you want it, then you will like Sara!

Sara is an amazing woman with magic hands! She has helped me so much during this pregnancy, I cannot sing her praises enough. If you are pregnant you have to go see her! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
