Infant Massage Instruction
After giving un-medicated, natural birth to both of my daughters and feeling the power it gave me as a woman, I knew I wanted to be involved in the field of working with pregnant people so they, too, are able to experience what I had. Soon after attending the birth of my youngest niece, I became a certified Labor Doula through DONA (Doulas Of North America). As a doula I assisted women in labor by offering them emotional and physical support during the birth of their babies. Along with this support, I also began to provide massage. I found that my patients responded to different areas of touch but I didn’t know why. As a result of this, I felt it was important to enrolled at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2003 in the Medical Massage program. I continued my massage education by becoming an Abdominal Therapy Practitioner with additional Pregnancy training, which is based on the teachings of Dr. Rosita Arvigo, focusing on the reproductive and digestive systems. I am now able to bring more complete assistance to pre-prenatal, prenatal and laboring women and to help them understand the changes in their body. I love working with this clientele; sharing this exciting time keeps me connected with my own birth experiences and that special time in my life.
In addition to my prenatal work, I have had the privilege to assist clients with a wide range of physical issues from ALS, cancer, stroke, surgical, to even end-of-life. The combination of my professional and personal experiences allows me to provide more wholesome massage sessions for my clients.
