(The purpose of deep tissue is to get to the more underlying tissues of muscle and fascia. For those with years of built up knots and tight muscles that receive little to no massage before might consider this after a few Swedish introductory massages. The pressure is as deep as needed but not more, keep in mind too deep of pressure is not good for the muscles or your body).

 Pre-Natal Let's face it ladies, when you're pregnant your body changes, your mood changes, and all the stress and discomfort can be overwhelming. Massage is a great way to help reduce stress, alleviate lower back pain, and relax during pregnancy. Pre-natal massage is basically a lighter pressure Swedish Side-lying massage while supporting you with comfy pillows!
**I require all first time pre-natal clients to be past their first trimester before receiving massage. High risk pregnancies are not accepted for the precaution of you and your baby, please consult your doctor.
