Reiki is a technique used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Prenatal massage provides a large number of physiological and psychological benefits to both the pregnant woman and her unborn child.
Just a few of these are:
It is our intention to not only address the physical tension brought on by pregnancy, but to also bring some quiet and relaxation to your day. We strive to take the edge off that overwhelmed feeling, in an attempt to allow you to enjoy this truly marvelous time period. A happy body equals a happy mama and that is good news for everyone, especially baby!
If you are interested in using massage therapy as a part of your overall wellness program and only need maintenance treatments, then every 4 to 6 weeks may be frequent enough for you. If you are dealing with an ongoing condition of pain or discomfort, you may find more benefit from more frequent treatments, such as every 2-3 weeks. If you are recovering from a recent injury, you may need more frequent treatments to get back to a maintenance level. For our prenatal and postpartum clients, weekly treatments are often the best plan whether it is to reduce the discomfort often associated with the last few weeks of pregnancy, or to aid in restoring the body to its former balance, after childbirth. Feel free to discuss the appropriate program with your therapist. We will do our best to find a plan that works for you!
