This includes pick up and delivery services, cord heart keepsake and flattering photo of the placenta showing it's "Tree of Life". I process capsules by dehydration, using the raw method. I process tinctures with a tablespoon of raw placenta and soak in vodka for 6 weeks. Then I strain it and return in a 2 oz tincture bottle. My clients love knowing that I work out of a designated office space and process their placentas in a very clean and sterile environment, in line with OSHA standards. Often women report feeling higher energy levels and emotionally balanced using their placenta as medicine. It is commonly used to heal after birth bleeding, support milk production, and postpartum blues.
Mindset Coaching Processing Sessions
Prenatal Childbirth Sessions
This service is to assist in birth preparation. Listening and coaching techniques used to help clients resource themselves and prepare mentally and emotionally for birth.
Postpartum Birth Story Sessions
This service is to assist in processing anything around a past birth. I will listen deeply and use a 'map' to help find a new perspective and gain strength from moments that aren't easy to remember.
Pregnancy Massage - Understanding the structural and hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, prenatal massage caters to a mother’s specific needs in any stage of the gestational process. This massage uses large pillows and padding to create a comfy side line position. Receiving regular massage during pregnancy decreases swelling and relieves tension in the low back, neck and shoulders allowing mothers to relax and rest easier as they prepare to give birth.
Postpartum Massage - These sessions are catered to where new mothers are at in the postpartum period. They can be done on a futon mattress while the mother's new baby snuggles close to her laying in a sideline position. Or they can be on a regular massage table and abdomen muscles may be palpated in a clockwise motion to help retracting back to pre-pregnancy size.
Myotherapy Trigger Point Release - Focusing on places in the body where added pressure is triggered to another area. Trigger Point engages the tendons and ligament attachments to relieve knots in the muscles. Rocking and range of motion is used to unlock certain holding patterns throughout the body.
Reflexology - Based on the knowledge that specific nerve ending points on the feet and hands correspond with organs and tissues throughout the entire body. Reflexology considers the hands and feet as hologram linked to every other part of the body.
Craniosacral Unwinding - Craniosacral Unwinding is a non invasive clothed bodywork modality. By working with the energetic, fluid, facial, and bone layers of the body, holding patterns receive permission to unwind. This sacred work allows the client to drop deep into their parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest mode), there by receiving rest and nurturing while the body lets go of tensions.
Craniosacral Unwinding for Infants and Children - The process of coming to the world is beautiful. It can also be very demanding and even traumatic to the newcomer’s body. Whether the birth was vaginal or cesarean, receiving Craniosacral Unwinding can be extremely beneficial. Listening and relating to the inherent healing ability as it’s stored in the cerebral spinal fluid, encourages the new body’s many systems to work effectively and together. By focusing on the health of the system, the birth process unwinds and the many health benefits of this work are allowed to unfold. Craniosacral Unwinding assists infants and children with colic, teething, nursing difficulties, growth spurts, learning disabilities and many other issues that arise from the birth story and are unique to the first years of life.
Polarity Energetic Bodywork - Polarity is a fourfold holistic healing system which incorporates bodywork, exercise, nutrition and facilitated communication. Through relating to life’s tensions and stories the practitioner facilitates the client’s inherent healing ability, allowing the body to process the energy of the current and past challenges as they have been stored in the body’s connective tissue, nervous system, and structure.
Swedish Massage- Swedish is a gentle and flowing massage. By using long gliding strokes, kneading and circular motions, in the direction of the heart, the blood receives more oxygen and the muscles release toxic buildup. Swedish massage utilizes a lighter touch to promote stress reduction and relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage - Deep Tissue is designed to release deeper muscle tension by targeting connective tissue and fascia. It is specifically beneficial for chronically tense areas such as neck, shoulders and low back. A variety of techniques are used to slowly sink through the layers of muscle, targeting release of specific tensions, scar tissue and adhesions.
