Prenatal and Postpartum Massage: This is a great time to get bodywork!  During pregnancy, the body goes through many changes to support the growing child.  This type of massage helps support the expecting mother by easing discomfort caused by postural changes, improving circulation, and decreasing stress levels.  Massage can be done lying on your side or in a reclining position in the last trimester.  Sarah is certified in Prenatal Therapy and Massage from Kate Jordan’s medically-based training, Bodywork for the Childbearing Year. She is trained in relieving pain conditions during pregnancy, massage during labor, and Caesarian rehabilitation.
