Are you "living for two" right now? Suffering from low back pain, tired or swollen feet, and/or loss of sleep?
Massage during pregnancy can soothe tired muscles, help regulate hormones, and teach relaxation techniques to help make your labor easier. It even helps you feel more rested--research has suggested that an hour of massage is equivalent to a 4 hour nap!
Want to be a hit at the baby shower? How about a massage gift certificate (and maybe a Newborn Massage booklet) for the new mom?
After baby gets here, wouldn't it be great for mom and dad to know some baby massage techniques for gas, colic, or general fussiness? Newborn Massage is a lovely way to strengthen the parent-child bond, too.
I teach a 30 minute Newborn Massage Class (includes booklet) for expectant parents. Since the gentle Newborn Massage can be used right after a normal delivery, it is a delightful way to become acquainted with your little one. (I like to teach this to the parents before baby arrives, so that they have time to become comfortable with the strokes).
These strokes can be used all through your baby's infancy and modified for toddlers and older children. It's one of the best investments you'll ever make in your child's health. Call or e-mail for current fees for NM classes.
Also, Craniosacral therapy is a wonderful way to help ensure that your body gets back to normal after the challenges of pregnancy and childbirth. If you experienced an increase in headaches or depression after giving birth, craniosacral can be effective in helping alleviate these problems.
All massage sessions can be customized to fit YOUR needs!

Date / Time
Born across the state line in Missouri, I moved to Pittsburg in 1983. I spent several years working at Miller's Professional Imaging before deciding in 1993 to devote my life to helping people feel better.
My massage training at White River School of Massage Therapy included anatomy & physiology and several different modes of massage. These included Swedish style, acupressure, Reiki and Craniosacral therapies. After graduating, I added prenatal and facial massage to my skills.
Learning is my first love; I love to research new ways of dealing with pain and tension. An important aspect of my practice is being able to offer my clients suggestions to use between massage visits to help reduce tension and stress.
I have held licenses in both the state of AR (1993-2010) and the state of MO (2010 to present). (Kansas is currently working on a state license law.) I've been certified by the National Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork since 1993.
