Perinatal Specialty Spa Services
Mother Love Boon A blessing of a treatment for ready to deliver or past their due time mothers that includes a foot bath, labor tea, birth-priorities embodiment discussion, skin brushing with powdered organic flowers followed by a deeply soothing massage with specific acupressure, reflexology and aromatherapy that assist mom's body to soften and open for labor & birth.

Welcome Home - A Mother Warming is similar to a postpartum ritual called Closing the Bones originating in Mexican and South American midwifery care. This service is essential support for the new mother. It can be a series of massages or a single service which is done once her lochia ceases.
The series begins with restorative massages with a warming oil focusing on mom's abdomen and pelvic girdle and can include pelvic and abdominal binding for supportive healing beginning shortly after birth (typically within the first week)
The final or one-time service is done once mom's lochia ceases and includes postpartum warming or nursing tea and herbal bath (in-home) or foot bath (in-studio*), a full-body massage that includes warming abdominal massage, specialized reflexology, acupressure and aromatherapy. Mom's pelvis is wrapped securely** then she's enveloped in a warming full body wrap. These services provide much needed maternal support and healing on many levels.
*Foot baths can also be done in-home if mom doesn't have a bath tub.
**Belly bind is additional $65 - $100. I can supply one or you can get/have your own.
Package price is customized and depends on # of massages before final one.
