POSTNATAL therapeutic massage
60 min: $150
90 min: $218
Postnatal massage helps new mothers relax, realizing the tensions of a changing body and life with a new baby. Each therapeutic, restorative session includes:
Aromatherapy (lavender, lemon and frankincense essential oils) to combat hormonal imbalances and feelings of depression.
Reflexology or foot massage for swollen feet and hands, as well as points for depression and low energy levels.
Deep neck and shoulder work to relieve tension due to breast feeding or co-sleeping.
Gentle abdominal, diaphragm and costal massage as well as abdominal cupping to restore natural digestive function, alleviate cramping or pain from C-section and work out kinks from carrying a baby. This portion of the treatment is optional.
A warm castor oil pack over the abdomen to support liver function which typically becomes depleted during pregnancy. Castor oil is also rich in vitamin E, useful for scar tissue repair.
A hot cup of Mother’s Milk tea to go, after your treatment.
Our therapists are trained to avoid contraindicated areas and will use firm pressure — according to the client’s desires and needs — for a satisfying and effective massage. As with all our massages, organic jojoba wax is used.
