After childbirth, a mother’s body is faced with new challenges: from carrying babies to changing diapers, breastfeeding to bathing, or simply just recovering from labor, muscle strain and fatigue. Postpartum massage concentrates on alleviating these strains and regaining balance in the body. In addition, massage decreases stress hormones and promotes endorphins—especially beneficial to new moms coping with the radical physical and psychological change from pregnant woman to new mother. Your newborn is welcome to join you for your massage with advance notice. Includes complimentary hot stones.
