Prenatal Massage

Are you in your second trimester of pregnancy and feeling exhausted, leg cramps and back pain?

According to Expert Reviews in Obstetrics and Gynecology (2010), studies showed massage therapy helped decrease depression, anxiety, leg and back pain in pregnant women. Results indicated women in labor used less pain medication and had labors averaging three hours shorter than average. Also clinical trials indicate that infants born to mothers who had massage therapy had lowered cortisol levels, better neonatal outcomes and fewer incidences of low birth weight and prematurity.

Pregnancy massage is performed with the Mother laying down on the left side supported by a pregnancy pillow in order to enhance the natural circle of the lymphatic system. The Vena cava is located on the left side and has the critical role of removing toxins and water retention from your body, which decreases swelling. Aromatherapy and stretching can be added to enhance your experience.

You’ll see

  • Improved breathing
  • Postural support
  • Reduced anxiety and stress
  • Improved mood + lifting depression
  • Relief of muscle discomfort, nausea, and edema (swollen ankles and feet).

Post-Surgery Treatments

Have you had a plastic surgery such as liposuction, abdominoplasty or a face-lift and need help recovering? Clients need to have a Plastic Surgeon release to start treatments. An assessment of the phase will be taken and a combination of Vodder, Godoy&Godoy, and fascial work will be performed. This allows for reduction of edema and bruising which activates neuromuscular regeneration.

Bandages and Air compression  may need to be used during treatments .

Also, CERVICAL STIMULATION will be used in the healing process – Research shows that cervical stimulation performed in isolation leads to a reduction in lymphedema. This therapy was used to treat face lymphedema caused by trauma or oncology surgery involving the dissection of lymph nodes of the neck and plastic surgery.

Taping, bandages and air compression may need to be used during some treatments.

I’ve been practicing as a professionally Licensed Massage Therapist (New York and New Jersey) for 6+ years.

Currently I’m volunteering with a US non-profit organization which sewed 5000 masks and donated them to hospitals and nursing homes during the pandemic. We are also supporting an Orphanage in Haiti which feeds 200 children daily.

My goal for every session is to help you reduce tension, pain and promote recovery from surgical procedures
