Prenatal and Postnatal Massage
With over 60 hours of peri-natal massage therapy training, doula training and being a mama of four, Kim has a diversity of knowledge to help give mamas the opportunity to receive the compassionate touch required during their transition through motherhood. Kim schedules this appointment in a 90 minute time block to allow for finding the perfect position for mama to be comfortable and able to fully relax. This is one of those times that it REALLY is all about YOU! We do ask that if you are within the first 6 weeks of giving birth that you have a written release from your doctor/midwife.
Kim tailors each massage to each person based on their body’s needs, their personal preferences and her expertise. Modalities of massage may include: Swedish, for a more relaxing experience; trigger point therapy, myofascial release, sports massage and bare foot on the floor (requires prior notice to allow appropriate setup), for a more therapeutic touch. This massage can be scheduled for 60 or 90 minutes.
Temple Style Lomi Lomi
This traditional healing massage is both therapeutic and pampering with long flowing strokes that hypnotize the nervous system. Traditionally this massage style was handed down in a family to those who were going to be “healers” in the Hawaiian culture. A major belief in their culture is that one individual is not responsible for their health, it is a culmination of the environment and family that greatly impacts it. So YOUR story matters because it impacts your body! This appointment can take up to 2 hours and includes your abdomen being massaged.
Thai Abdominal Massage
Kim uses Thai abdominal massage to address several different aspects of the abdomen. This style of massage is especially beneficial for those of have had abdominal surgery or who have been pregnant. More than one appointment is needed to resolve most issues. We do ask that if you are within the first 6 weeks of surgery or giving birth that you have a written release from your doctor/midwife.
