Hey, you're human. And if you're like the rest of us, sometimes your plans change. Ideally, I would prefer to have 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or change your appointment. The following policies apply to all clients, even the human ones:
Many of my clients will ask me, "Should I cancel my massage if I'm sick?" My answer is "Yes, please!" Massage is great for lots of things, but it’s not great for a body fighting a virus or infection. Getting a massage when you’re sick takes your body’s attention away from infection fighting. It might sound strange, but many people find that they end up feeling worse after receiving a massage when they have a cold or the flu.
Please cancel your appointment if:
Massage during pregnancy not only makes a woman feel more comfortable, but offers undeniable health benefits as well. In all trimesters, regular prenatal massage can:
• Encourage relaxation.
• Reduce physical and emotional stress.
• Decrease depression and anxiety.
• Alleviate muscle and joint pain, particularly SI joint pain, pubic symphasis
dysfunction, sciatica, low back, and shoulder pain.
• Improve breathing, digestion, and sleep.
• Prepare pelvic muscles for birth process.
As a Pre- and Perinatal Massage Specialist, I spend my days helping women feel confident, comfortable and relaxed throughout pregnancy and the transition into motherhood. I use techniques that are designed specifically to address pregnancy's challenges. Massage, even deep tissue massage, is safe in all trimesters, but special considerations must be taken into account to keep mom and baby safe.
If you are a mom-to-be experiencing physical discomfort or just nervous about the birth process, I can help! Call for more information or to book an appointment.
