Mama’s need loving touch. this magical time calls for Sheri’s prenatal massage to ease the usual discomforts associated with pregnancy such as lower back, hip, shoulder and neck pain. Mama is left feeling blissful and at her best to happily continue growing in love.
Restorative and Postpartum massage is essential to Mama’s full recovery after birth. As Mama’s body is busy healing this magical time of hope, wonder and joy should be embraced. Sheri’s massage takes Mama away to a blissful state and has many physical and emotional benefits including improvement in sleep, easing fatigue, and reducing stress. Postpardum massage can also help to ease any “baby blues’ that may arise, soothing Mama during this important transition as a women.
Massage with Seaweed body wrap:
Sheri’s Massage and Seaweed Wrap helps to rid the body of toxins from medications during labor & delivery:
Detoxifies. A seaweed wrap helps to eliminate toxins from your body.
Removes Dead Skin and Moisturizes. Dead skin prevents your body from absorbing moisture.
Improves Skin Elasticity and Regeneration. Over time, your skin loses the ability to stretch and return to normal.
Reduces Cellulite and Improves Body Contouring.
Using Bentonite clay, made up of aged volcanic ash and seaweed with profound healing properties, the focus (of the body wrap) is to deeply relax and cleanse the lymphatic and immune system. The results of these therapies are increased vitality and well-being, detoxification, improved circulation, reduction of cellulite, and greatly improved skin tone.
