Cheryl has 20 years of experience with PRENATAL and LABOR PREP MASSAGE
Massage during pregnancy can help reduce back pain, relieve muscle tension and soreness in the joints, provide soothing comfort to calm your nervous system and reduce stress, and be beneficial in aligning your posture.
My specially designed massage to help you prepare for labor. A therapeutic massage using myofascial release techniques to align the lumbar and pelvic areas, administered close to your due date. Specific positioning, birthing breath, visualization and the use of precise acupressure techniques increase the effectiveness and help you to prepare for birth naturally!
Reduce the strain that long hours of breastfeeding can put on your neck, shoulders and back muscles with this customized postpartum massage therapy treatment. Other benefits include hormone regulation, reduced swelling, better sleep . It assists with healing (and C-section recovery), as well as helping to return the pelvic area into proper alignment.
Understand how our body registers pain, and practice skills that will help you manage the tensions and discomforts during all the phases of labor: Positioning, breathing techniques, visualization, relaxation techniques, affirmations, application of hot and cold packs, and several other beneficial techniques will be discussed and practiced to help you through the birthing process.
A hands-on practice of the active labor options, created at the request of the Fathers-to- be, to be able to feel more supportive during the birthing process. Practicing supportive holds, becoming familiar with your breathing rhythms, allows both of you to get a sense of timing for the process. The rehearsal lets your body memory guide you once actual labor begins. Both women and partners have said that they feel confident and more at ease entering into labor, having done the rehearsal.
Whether it is your first baby, or second or more, we sometimes need some guidance with breastfeeding. Do not hesitate to contact me, when you need some help.
