Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Thai Yoga Massage is a wonderful form of gentle bodywork that promotes relaxation, stress release and an over all sense of well being. Through nurturing touch, It eases fear and tension while meeting the needs of women in the childbearing year. I trained in this technique at Kripalu with Lotus Palm Thai Yoga Massage masters Paul Cromwell & Michelle Cormack.  
 
Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art that has roots in the Indian healing system of Ayurveda from over 2,500 years ago. It combines massage, stretching, reflexology and joint mobilization in a rhythmic fashion…. promoting a deep state of relaxation and calm. The holistic approach of Thai Massage increases the flow of energy through the body and loosens muscles and connective tissue… It is performed while dressed in comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and is sometimes referred to as Thai-Assisted Yoga Therapy, Traditional Thai Massage or simply Thai Massage. Some even call it “Yoga that is done to you”! It is a wonderful and unique massage experience….very relaxing yet revitalizing. You need to try it to believe it!” Michelle Cormack
 
Prenatal Thai Yoga is more subtle than regular Thai massage there is no thumbing, only gentle pressure is applied and the physiological needs of the blossoming Mama are paramount.The Massage is performed fully clothed on a padded floor (no table to hop up on or fall off) with lots of comfy supportive cushions. Benefits of this bodywork are:

  •  Learning more positions for labor & delivery
  •  Increased energy and prana flow
  • Relief from headache, sinus congestion, backache, shoulder/neck pain, muscular tightness and gripping, joint aches and stiffness, sciatica, leg cramps
  • Reduced swelling & edema
  • Increased circulation, flexibility and body awareness
  • Improved sleep
  • Decreased stress hormones in the body 
  • Improved digestion & elimination
  • Supportive environment for the release of anxiety
