YOU ARE INVITED TO COME EXPERIENCE REST AND PEACE AS YOUR BODY IS ENCOURAGED TO UNWIND AND RELEASE.
With 8 years of experience supporting births, it is a special privilege to treat expectant, laboring and new mothers.
Cushions are placed at key points to support your body and promote the utmost relaxation while this massage helps relieve the aches and discomforts of pregnancy. The babies seem to enjoy it as well!
LABOR PROMOTION MASSAGE
For mothers near, on or over term.
With this massage, various modalities are utilized to encourage your body to first relax and then to stimulate the release of hormones to increase and strengthen the labor process.
Though often successful in helping to encourage or strengthen labor, every woman and every pregnancy is different
so the results differ as well. In my experience, the greater the signs that the body is ready for birth, the higher the rate of success. Of course, labor and birth are natural processes and there can be no guarantee of the onset of active labor with this method; however, I have noted in the few cases where medical induction became necessary after this treatment, the inductions went very quickly. 3 went to the pushing stage in under 15 minutes and 2 had successful VBAC.
This massage targets the areas most likely to be stressed due to birth and taking care of a new baby. It also employs the use of heat and a soothing oil on the abdomen to encourage the healing process after birth.
Prenatal Massage Testimony:
I work as a
medical assistant in a local physician’s office.
When I went to see Paris for my first visit I was
having a lot of lower back and hip pain which is a common problem in
pregnancy. I was very impressed by Paris’ professionalism and
concern for my pain and problems. I walked out of the first
session feeling refreshed with all of my aches and pains gone and
feeling as good as I did before I was pregnant.
I have never walked out after a session with Paris having
any pain or discomfort, I have always left feeling amazing and
Paris has also worked with me to naturally encourage my
unborn child to move from the breach position to a head down position.
I recommend Paris to all of our pregnant
patients who are having back pain, sciatica, and all of the
body pain that comes with being pregnant.

JOURNEY TO HERE
Comforting with touch has always been more natural to me than any other way, and supporting births as a doula, I noticed how very helpful and
comforting massage was to laboring mothers.

nothing healthy could thrive and a flowing stream of water-

We live because blood and other vital fluids flow
throughout our bodies. if this flow begins to stagnate it results in
imbalance causing sickness and malfunction.
I wanted to learn more and that desire took me to New York College of Health Professions to study massage therapy.
I learned was that touch not only comforts and encourages, but can also
help release stagnating fluids and tissues to restore a more healthy
