Prenatal & PostNatal Treatments

A   N O T E   F R O M   J E N N I F E R . . .

 I have been so privileged to be part of many women’s pregnancies, see the changes in their bodies as their babies grow, and bring them comfort, support, and relief from aches and pains. Often times they will continue to come after their pregnancies for relief from discomfort that may arise from holding their babies, for relaxation, and even just to pamper themselves, which all mothers need to do.’’ 

PRENATAL/POSTNATAL

During and after Pregnancy is a period of physical, emotional, and hormonal changes. Acupuncture & lymphatic massage can be soothing, supportive, and therapeutic.
Good for;

• Easing pain and tension in the back and neck, and headaches that may be caused by postural changes due to added weight.
• Decreases pain in the pelvic/hip area and sciatic nerve pain.
• Increases circulation, removes metabolic waste, reduces swelling in hands and legs, and reduces pressure on veins in legs.
• Improves digestion, promotes deep breathing, and boosts energy.
• Reduces muscle spasms and leg cramps.
• Promotes relaxation, overall well being, and improves sleep.

Acupuncture can additionally reduce nausea, swelling, bladder discomfort, anxiety and depression, fatigue, and regulate hormonal changes/mood swings. Acupuncture combined with lymphatic drainage is also very helpful for breast problems related to nursing, like little or difficult lactation and mastitis.
Appointments are tailored to your personal needs and preferences, 60 or 90-minute sessions. If you’re interested in an acupuncture/lymphatic massage combination, I would strongly suggest a 90 minute session to allow for more time for the massage.

Specially designed body cushions, pillows, and wedges are used to safely and comfortably position the mother-to-be during and after pregnancy.

* If you have any concerns or risks please check with your doctor prior to scheduling an appointment.

“I started seeing Jennifer early in my pregnancy. Her massage is the perfect balance of gentleness and effectiveness! She has wonderful pregnancy-specific pillows that allow an expectant mom to rest comfortably, with her belly correctly supported, while allowing Jennifer full access to the back. While other massage therapists say they do pregnancy massage, Jennifer is truly knowledgeable-about and attuned-to the pregnant woman’s unique massage needs. “After I delivered, I continued to see Jennifer monthly. Those pillows are wonderful for nursing moms, too! But even years later, I still prefer Jennifer for her seemingly magic ability to make acupuncture & massage pleasurable yet therapeutic! ”
