Massage

I specialize in massage for women throughout pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period. Let me come to you! I offer massage in the comfort and convenience of your own home in the greater Houston area*. Women of all ages and stages are also welcome.

Prenatal massage – safe throughout your three trimesters & designed to address your most pressing needs as they change

$90 for 60 minutes; $120 for 90 minutes

Labor preparation massage – offered after your 37th week of pregnancy, this session helps your body prepare for labor and calms your mind for the big transition ahead. There are several stretches included so please wear leggings or pajama-style pants.

$90 for 60 minutes; $120 for 90 minutes.

Add infant massage instruction $35 (30 minutes)

Acupressure for induction massage – past your due date? Let’s use acupressure and reflexology to do our best to stimulate the body to begin labor spontaneously. There are several stretches included so please wear leggings or pajama-style pants.

$90 for 60 minutes; $120 for 90 minutes

Postpartum massage – recover from labor and birth with a massage rich in nurture and deep in strategy to get your body on a good trajectory for healing. I assess the alignment of your hips and address any imbalances I find, stimulate your body to clear excess fluid, check for diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles) and reduce muscle tension from birth and early baby care. Best within the first 4 weeks postpartum. Also best to consider more than 1 session.

$120 for 90 minutes; $150 for 2 hours.

Infant Massage Instruction – Learn to massage your infant with confidence. The main intent is to soothe the nervous system to encourage your baby’s adaptation to life “on the outside.” Massage encourages better sleep, better digestion and elimination, and improved bonding and attachment. Includes tips for soothing baby & interpreting baby’s cues, including crying. Includes an instruction booklet outlining massage techniques for future reference. $35 (approximately 30 minutes; can be done before baby arrives or with baby)

Mom Massage – even if you’re not pregnant, take a turn to lay on the massage table to unwind, relax, decrease muscle tension and simply be “off duty.”

$90 for 60 minutes; $120 for 90 minutes
