Welcome to Mama Needs Massage! If you’re looking for a professional massage that's customized to your needs, I’m glad you found us.
Mama Needs Massage specializes in stress relief and therapeutic massage for new mamas and mamas of young children.
This special group includes some of the hardest-working, multi-tasking, most selfless, and exhausted women I know. It includes stay-at-home moms, work-from-home moms, soccer moms, runner moms, domestic-diva moms, just-trying-to-hold-it-together moms, and everyone in between. If you find part of yourself in this description, you're in the right place. While I focus on serving mothers, I am happy to work with anyone of any age and stage of life, including pregnancy.
Since joining the ranks of motherhood in 2009, I’ve come to realize that moms – particularly new moms and moms of young, dependent children – are seriously overworked and often take last place on their own priorities list. This results in moms who frequently sacrifice the regular stress relief needed to really enjoy these challenging and miraculous early years.
It’s so ubiquitous, and yet often overlooked. The aching “baby-carrying arm.” The pulled back from picking up one too many toys. The wear and tear from lugging a child on one hip and a massive, hold-everything diaper bag on the other; balancing snacks and sippy cups; hoisting your little lovebug in and out of the carseat/crib/high chair all day long. God help those of us who have more than one! Raising children is some of the hardest and most demandnig work there is, and Mama Needs Massage can help.
Mama Needs Massage operates a lot like my (ideal) parenting style: gentle, compassionate, and firm when necessary. Just like a toddler can’t be forced to nap on your schedule, our bodies and minds cannot be forced into relaxation. Mama Needs Massage may be different from what you have experienced before: my work is intentional, patient, and subtle, allowing for deep relaxation and creating a safe space for healing to take place.
