BODYWORK: MASSAGE

A wonderful and luxurious way to help your body adjust to the changes of pregnancy, labor & postpartum.

To schedule sessions for any of these services, Chelsea Gomes directly at blossomnroots@gmail.com.

Mama-to-be Massage

Pregnancy massage is a wonderful and luxurious way to help your body adjust to the changes of pregnancy as well as prepare for labor. The ability to allow tired muscles to release and a busy mind to turn off are helpful skills to carry into labor and parenthood.

Swedish massage, deep tissue, acupressure and reflexology techniques are used during sessions as needed. Pregnancy massage is indicated for women in their second and third trimesters.

Some women have found success in receiving a labor invitation massage, done at 40+ weeks gestation, to help your body and baby welcome the labor process.

Postpartum Massage

Postpartum massage promotes a faster recovery after birth and helps relieve over­worked muscles. After your baby is born is a wonderful time to get bodywork because there is still a high level of the pregnancy hormone relaxin in your body, which makes muscular and structural changes more possible during this time – potentially creating lasting change in your body.

In-home Postpartum Sessions

In home postpartum sessions are one of our favorite services to offer! Some families purchase a package of multiple sessions, so that the whole family can get treated ­ including partners and babies. We offer this service to support the natural need of the postpartum family to nest and nurture themselves during this time of great change and sleep deprivation. Let us come to you and transform your home into a spa!

Some women have their babies with them periodically through these sessions, and others have a friend or family member caring for their baby during the session. Either option, or a combination of the two, works for us. Basic breastfeeding information and support can be shared during these sessions if there is a need.

This is also a wonderful gift to give the postpartum family, or to add to your registry. Gift certificates are available!

Chelsea is a very special massage therapist. Not only is she intuitive but also very kind, both emotionally and physically. She connects to our deeper layers as humans and has a powerful healers touch. She was my doula during my first endeavor to motherhood. She massaged and cared for my changing body and spirit throughout its transformation. We as a household are so grateful for her. – E.B.
