Our practitioners have taken continuing education in various areas including:
Pregnancy Massage RMT
This massage is designed for women before, during and shortly after pregnancy. We use a pillow support system designed specifically for the safe and comfortable treatment of expectant mothers right from conception until birth! This pillow support system allows the mom-to-be the ability to receive treatment while comfortably laying face down: what a treat! Most women don’t want to leave after having some greatly appreciated “tummy time”. With a variety of removable and adjustable pillows and wedges, we are able to completely customize a fit for your constantly changing body. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your pregnancy or treatment please don’t hesitate to contact us for a customized plan to put your mind at ease.
