let's work together to create length & space in your body

Throughout pregnancy, the body undergoes a variety of physiological changes that are necessary for the healthy development of the baby and preparation for birth. These changes can create discomfort or strain.

massage has been shown to:

  • Reduce stress, anxiety, and depression

  • Decrease nausea and improve sleep

  • Improve immune system function

  • Decrease strain on joints and muscles

  • Increase sense of well-being and reduce stress and fears surrounding birth

  • Reduce swelling, muscle spasms and soft tissue pain

  • Decrease obstetrical complications

  • Improve birth outcomes and bonding

  • Improve lactation and balance hormones

  • Connect mother and baby with abdominal massage

Accepted Forms of payment

Payment is accepted via cash, check, credit cards, debit cards, and HSA cards. Due to poor reimbursement rates, Chelsey does not bill insurance. If you would like to try to submit the sessions to your insurance company yourself, Chelsey can provide you with an invoice. Please call your insurance company ahead of time to confirm whether they will accept this from you.
