Our bodies serve as documentary vessels, holding onto echoes of emotion, and reflecting our life experiences. The pains, discomforts, and limitations of "womanhood" are not in your head.

Prenatal Massage $115/ $155

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 with light to medium pressure.

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.

Abdominal Therapy $215/$115

Abdominal Therapy for digestive and fertility health

Around the world, traditional cultures use abdominal massage to promote health and vitality. At the center of our being, the abdomen shelters the vital systems of digestion, elimination, reproduction as well as blood and lymph circulation.

 

Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ (ATMAT) is a system of bodywork that combines massage, structural balancing, lymphatic stimulation, topical compresses and warm herbal steams to improve the health of pelvis.  It improves circulation and helps release deeply held tension in the abdominal core and pelvic floor, breathing improves, anxiety is soothed, and digestion and elimination become more robust. In our practice abdominal therapy focus is on female reproductive health and supporting fertility.

 

We work with specific protocols for fertility,  PCOS, endometriosis and fibroids.

Fertility focused clients will experience best results when receiving abdominal therapy 3-6 months prior to conception. This work is best received days 1-23 of a regulated menstual cycle. For those with unpredictable menses, we would avoid working during active menstrual bleeding.

 ***Please Note this is not appropriate technique for women who are current IUD Users or who are pregnant. 

Scar tissue manual release

Scar Tissue Release $55

Scar tissue from c- section, mastectomy, breast reduction, gender affirming top suregeries can be hard, uneven, inflexible and cause pulling sensations throughout the body.  Working the affected tissue with systematic friction techniques and electrostim tools 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 scheduled.
