Nuturing the Mother

Nancy Zuvieta and Melanie Wilkens are certified as a pregnancy massage therapists. They received their certification by Claire Miller, one of the nation's leaders in massage therapy. This program is approved by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. 


Nancy and Melanie are able to offer safe and therapeutic pregnancy massage, labor support massage, postpardum massage, and newborn massage instruction. Our program includes massage for each trimester and relief for common discomforts the mother may be experiencing. We are also trained in Labor Support Massage, which can be utilized throughout the labor or by training the mother's partner in how to give massage in labor. As the mother returns to her pre-pregnancy state, our postpardum massage technique's will aid in the realignment and recovery of her body. We can also provide guidance to the new parent to give newborn massage. 




Research has shown that pregnancy massage strengthens the immune system, decreases blood pressure, decreases stress hormones, shortens labor time, and helps restore the body in the pastpardum phase. This research is documented by the Touch Research of Miami, Florida, and the work of Tiffany Fields.
