The goals of prenatal massage are very similar to a regular massage. Relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, and improve circulation and mobility. This service is performed with extra care and understanding for the changing body of Mom. A doctor's note is required for those in their first trimester.
From Babycenter.com's article on prenatal massage:
"Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you're carrying and you may find you've got an aching lower back."
Includes optional Foot Soak Enhancement upon request only.

$30 add-on Hot Oil Scalp Treatment
Very warm Ayurvedic oil is massaged into the scalp for 20 minutes. The stress-relieving heat and massage increases circulation to the head and brain, enhancing mental clarity and focus. The warm oil treats the scalp for hydration and silkier hair. Perfect as a quick stress relief treatment, or as an addon to a massage or body wrap.
Begin your massage treatment with a warm, soothing foot soak. The soak includes relieving epsom salt, detoxifying baking soda, and aromatherapeutic essential oils.
Optionally included before most massage sessions for instant stress relief and warming up the body.
Please arrive 10 minutes early to receive this additional treatment, and wear pants that are easily rolled up.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils in a variety of ways, such as adding a blend into massage oil, in an herbal steam for gentle inhalation, direct palm inhalation, anointment of the temples, and/or vaporization to fill the room and change your head.
From Floracopeia's free essential oils e-book:
"It requires 1,400,000 handpicked rose blossoms to produce a liter of rose essential oil. A single ounce of this oil contains the essence of 40,000 rose blossoms, and sixty-seven roses give only one drop of essential oil... Because essential oils are produced by the immune intelligence of the plants, people can use essential oils to support wellness and healthy stress response."
Aromatherapy is now included as an option in all massage therapy treatments ( except Prenatal massage ) at no extra charge, to make each session powerfully soothing to the senses.
