Prenatal Massage

Improving the standard of pregnancy care

enhancing maternal health + care

Prenatal Massage

The cornerstone of our practice and mission to improve the standard of prenatal and postpartum care, prenatal massage is a core service offering at A Healer’s Hand + The Nest (AHH). From therapeutic massage to continuing education and community resources, we are here to support you in your perinatal journey and help ease the overall transition into parenthood.

The goal of prenatal massage is to give special attention to mother-to-be and nurture the new life growing within her. Given the inherent anatomical differences specific to pregnancy and understanding that each individual body is unique, our providers are trained extensively by AHH Owner Nicole Budeau to utilize very refined techniques and releases. Our customized approach is designed to specifically address and benefit each client — delivering a safe, relaxing, and highly effective therapeutic massage while easing the pain and discomfort of pregnancy.

Increasing research demonstrates the effectiveness of prenatal massage from both a physiological and emotional perspective. Incorporating this therapeutic approach into routine pregnancy care can further help improve labor and delivery outcomes.
