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 a Certified Arvigo® Practitioner with Advanced Pregnancy training, which is based on Maya Abdominal therapy focusing on ones gastric and reproductive 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.
