Pilates and Massage focusing on women's health
PELVIC FLOOR MASSAGE
Pelvic floor massage is a combination of physical and energetic techniques designed to release muscular and fascial tension within the pelvic bowl; it can address current physical symptoms, and symptoms associated with birth, emotional, or sexual trauma that the body may hold within the pelvic floor.
I am a certified Holistic Pelvic Care™ practitioner and also certified in Bodywork for the Female Pelvic Floor by Leslie Stager with Integrative Bodywork for Women
PRENATAL & POSTPARTUM MASSAGE
Pregnancy Massage is a specialized treatment for expectant mothers. Using the MotherTouch prenatal holistic massage approach I offer a massage focused on nurturing, creating space, and relieving tension within the mother’s body during pregnancy.
After the baby is born, a woman's body is adjusting to its new transformed changes. Postpartum massage can help guide the internal organs back to their original position, re-align the hips, and relieve the muscular tension that develops in caring for your new infant.
At the end of your first postpartum massage, I will offer a South American tradition called Closing of the Bones to bring the outward energy of childbirth back to the mother and honor her transformation.
Had a wonderfully rejuvenating therapeutic massage, and now that I’ve been introduced to Pilates, I’ll be back for that additional resource in my self-care toolbox. Great service, relaxing atmosphere, and knowledgeable care.
[Machelle] is by far one of the most gifted, knowledgeable and passionate supporters of women's health.
Machelle is incredibly talented and deeply knowledgeable. [...] I cannot recommend enough the pelvic floor work for any mama or any woman with reproductive or sexual trauma. The experience promoted profound physical release, but also emotional and spiritual healing.
