Table massage with Marta is not like other massage you've received before. It is a unique fusion of gliding strokes (pressure to your preference), Thai massage techniques, lymph drainage and Craniosacral Therapy depending on what your needs are that day. These sessions are deeply relaxing and effective at relieving pain.
Floor mat sessions with Marta is a fusion of Thai massage techniques that will leave you feeling balanced, stretched out, and relaxed yet energized.
On the physical level, Craniosacral Therapy
works with the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), as well as the bones that surround them. The central nervous system is constantly being bathed in cerebral spinal fluid and the flow of this fluid influences other parts of our physiology.
Many people are now better understanding the Psychosomatic aspect of the human experience. Meaning, our emotions and experiences influence our bodies and our well-being. CST works with emotions and memories stored within the body, and helps to bring balance to patterns and trauma.
Marta is aware that this transformational time of life requires special attunement to the pregnant person's (and baby's) ever changing needs. These sessions emphasize gentle and relaxing techniques to reduce stress and tension. Like all of Marta's work, sessions can be massage only, or a combination of massage and Craniosacral Therapy.
Why Craniosacral Therapy? CST sessions can be ideal for those dealing with fear or anxiety around giving birth and/or postnatally to integrate the experience of giving birth.
Bodywork can also be a really sweet time for birth giver and baby to connect and slow down with each other.
Please get the clear from you health care provider before scheduling for massage.

BE ON TIME
It is Marta's firm goal to use as much of your session time for actual bodywork as possible. Feel free to arrive 5 minutes early to come in and get settled so we can consult and prepare for your treatment at that time. When you arrive, have a seat in the waiting room. If you need to use the restroom while you wait, go through the waiting room to the back of the suite. The restroom is on the right-hand side. Thank you also for being mindful of the other practitioners in the space and keep noise to a minimum.
Refrain from eating large meals at least 1.5-2 hours before your massage. Massage DOES lower blood sugar and blood pressure. Having a light snack on hand for after your session can be a good thing. Please notify Marta if you are menstruating or pregnant when you arrive so she can adjust techniques accordingly.
If you need to reschedule for any reason please make sure to do so with at least 24 hours notice. No-shows will be billed the full session amount. You can cancel and reschedule appointments through the confirmation email from when you made your appointment.
