Osteopathy, a gentle manual therapy, is key in addressing any structural imbalances or discomforts that may arise during pregnancy. Osteopathy enhances your body’s ability to adapt to the changes of pregnancy by promoting better pelvic alignment optimizing your body’s overall alignment and function, reducing tension, and supporting overall well-being.
Our experienced Registered Massage Therapists offer specialized techniques that target specific areas of concern, alleviating muscle tension, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation. Massage therapy during pregnancy can help ease common discomforts such as back pain, swelling in the feet & hands, and overall fatigue while providing a nurturing space for self-care and rejuvenation.

My job is to facilitate what your body already knows how to do, which is heal naturally. We figure out what has gotten in the way of that healing and relieve it so the healing process may continue.
My approach to treatment is conversation based. I listen to a patient’s history to link their symptoms and create a treatment plan. Through a biomechanical assessment, I am able to tailor my approach to best suit the patient’s needs effectively. My hands-on outlook to treatment helps to create a truly personalized experience.
As a Registered Massage Therapist, I have a deep understanding of the physical body and know how to release tension. As a Yoga Teacher, I meet clients where they are on their path. As an Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultant, I know that we are so much more than our physical bodies, and that everyone’s experience is unique. I combine these three areas of expertise to create customized treatment offerings that are truly one-of-a-kind. I’m so grateful to be able to offer them to you!
