Pregnancy creates many changes in a woman’s anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry, as well as in her emotional state. Massage can decrease the stress and discomfort caused by these changes, ease labor and delivery, and help speed recovery to a pre-pregnant state. Two of our therapists are certified in pregnancy massage, and have access to our specially designed cushion, the body cushion, which allows them to position clients with comfortable, safe support throughout the entire pregnancy, and permits the client to lie prone even into the last weeks of pregnancy. Sheri Bergen is certified in Mother Massage, a specialized pre- and postnatal massage therapy and labor support, and Allison Dinsmore is certified in Claire Miller’s Nurturing the Mother Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage program. Both therapists are mothers, and understand the changes brought by pregnancy. They recognize when massage is contraindicated and when referral to a physician is necessary.
