Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage is safe during all three Trimesters. At SPW our focus is soothing the discomforts and sleeplessness that often accompanies pregnancy in the second and third trimesters.  Headaches, neck, shoulder pain and sciatic nerve discomfort will melt away.

Our Prenatal Massage is performed in the side lying position with a uniquely designed pillow system specific for pregnancy. The pillow system provides exceptional support for the torso and head and negates pressure typically placed on the hip and shoulder while lying on ones side. Properly positioned, one can relax and drift away for much needed respite. 

Unscented organic oils and lotions have been selected to ensure a pleasant and safe experience for mother and baby.

Scar Tissue Release

Scar tissue from c- section, mastectomy or breast reduction can be hard, uneven, inflexible and cause pulling sensations throughout the body.  Working the affected tissue with systematic friction techniques can help break down and soften the physical and visual presence of a scar. To begin working scars and incisions must be fully closed, and at least 6 weeks healed.  Scar tissue release can be fairly intense, thus 30 minute sessions are advised. 

Yoni and V-Steams
