Customized Medical Massage Sessions

Medical Massage supports people who contend with painful conditions related to injuries or illness.  These sessions begin from a place of inquiry into the nature of the pain and dysfunction.  We look to understand the underlying causes or dynamics in the body and therefore can support the whole person through a relational approach of 1) skillfully applying effective techniques, 2)  to the related places,  and 3)  that can be received by the individual in a healing way.  As individual situations are unique, so is each Customized Medical Massage Session treatment plan.     

Conditions that have been supported and/or treated through Customized Medical Massage Sessions at The Balanced Being include: 

  • Vertebral Disc degeneration

    Prenatal Massage

    During the time of pregnancy a womans body is changing dramatically.  The hormone relaxin is released and the stabilizing ligaments become soft and unstable with the muscles overcompensating becoming fatigued and sore.  Research shows that when regular massages are received during pregnancy, women have less complications during delivery, shorter delivery times, along with common symptoms during pregnancy lessened.  

    At The Balanced Being we specialize in working with women during pregnancy.  Many of our clients have been high risk pregnancies.  Including regular therapeutic massage as a part of their prenatal support, our clients share a variety of success stories.  Our clients have had full term twins following months of bedrest, vaginal deliveries following previous c-section births, and minimized symptoms of sciatica, anxiety, swelling, muscle cramping, and lack of sleep.

    The positioning of the mother during the session is determined at the time of the session.  Options can include face down with full support through specialized pregnancy body cushions, side lying variations with special supports, and semi reclined.   We have special cushioning and supports available to create a comfortable and safe session for everyone. 

    During unique pregancies we also accomodate the needs of the mother by coming to hospitals and homes.    

    Special dvd's for viewing are also available in conjunction with the prenatal massage session, offering interviews and insights from the leading prenatal researchers in the country.  Unique and insightful perspectives are offered on the babies perception and experience prior to birth and includes a variety of informative and supportive tips for the parents to be.
