The Massage Womb, a cozy place to come to be nurtured and well cared for by a RMT and CIMT. I treat pregnant moms, post natal moms, birthing partners* , parents and other care givers, and clients who need other care such as athletic conditioning.
I started this business because I'm passionate about all things pregnancy and infant related, and just helping people in general. I attended my first birth on Oct. 17, 2011 and was absolutely captivated. You might say my experiences with assisting in births started in 2006 when I helped my cat Cera with her babies. I went all out! I rushed out to get two hot water bottles to help keep the kittens warm, put a fresh towel in the box she chose, turned off the lights, lit some candles and put on a relaxing Enya CD!
Whether it's our animal companions or human patients, I love helping and seeing the difference it can make. Not just for that individual, but everyone connected to them. If we take care of ourselves first, we can better care for those we love! So let me help you be the best mom, life partner, dad, sister, aunt, grandfather, best friend you can be, with some memorable, therapeutic, intuitive, relaxing, truly effective massage!
I am qualified to perform Massage Therapy and to facilitate Infant Massage Workshops (for individuals or small groups), Pregnancy Massage Workshops for the birthing partner*, and General Massage Workshops for any twosome. These treatments and workshops are enhanced by the skills, knowledge and certification I received from:
- Registration with the CMTO as a Registered Massage Therapist since September 2009
- Certified Infant Massage Teacher training from world renowned Tina Allen in October 2012
- International Childbirth Education Association Pre-natal Teacher training at BINI Birth in Los Angeles, November 2012
- Mikao Usui Reiki Level I training in January 2012
- Experience gained from a wide variety of different clinical settings
