Maternal Massage

Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs your body goes through during the dramatic changes of pregnancy. We can see you starting in the 1st trimester to the last and beyond.

Moxa for Breech Presentation

If your baby is breech, massage can make space for your baby to turn, it helps to open and relax your muscles and you. 

We can also add moxa (moxibustion) to the treatment.
