Since the dawn of time, the perinatal cycle has been revered in ceremonies, art, songs and prayer. Many cultures recognised pregnant women as a Goddess - a creator of life with a close connection to the Divine. Pregnancy is viewed a rite of passage, in particular for first time mothers, as they embrace their new roles as a mother, partner and woman. This is a time of transition when changes occur at all levels – emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually and hormonally.
Touch is an integral aspect of helping women to adjust to this transition. Once the child is born, touch can assist the mother to reformulate and rebalance herself and her body.
Fertility Massage and Cleansing
Fertility massage and cleansing is best begun at least three months prior to pregnancy. This enables full preparation of the uterus and body for the developing embryo. Allowing the preparation time prior to conception increases the possibility of healthy conception and full pregnancy. The body and uterus are cleansed, hormones balanced, chi within the womb can be built up. When the mind, body and emotions are relaxed, you open yourself compeltely to the possibility of having a child. This is a three-month program incorporating a range of massage methods and ancient cleaning rituals to prepare you and your body.
I feel greatly honored to massage and offer nourishment to pregnant women at a sacred time in their lives. Pregnancy involves great emotional and physiological changes during each trimester, and your massage will be tailored specifically for you and your needs.
Benefits of pregnancy massage:
Post Partum Massage
Fllowing labour and birth, attention turns from the mother to the baby. This is a time when it is crucial to continue care for the mother as she faces a new set of life challenges and changes both psychologically and physiologically. The post partum period lasts for 6 –8 weeks but subtle transformations can occur for more than a year. Massage to the new mother assists in the transition to this new life and its accompanying demands.
