Pre/Post Natal Massage
Prenatal massage is a wonderful compliment to your prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness.

Blood is therefore releasing more oxygen into the tissues and contributing to the reduction of tissue inflammation.Cupping therapy is widely used treatment for various ailments. Cupping is used to relieve pain, relieve symptoms, reduce appearance of cellulite, release toxins, relaxation and much more.
Gua Sha "Scraping"
Gua sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping’. Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body.
A massage already comes with its own set of health benefits. The application of firm touch in the right places has been shown to have positive effects on muscle and joint pain, stress, anxiety, headaches, digestive disorders and even sleep disorders. But adding CBD oil into the mix can enhance such benefits when applied appropriately. Next time you pencil in a massage appointment, make it a CBD massage.
