Recipients lay in a side-lying position with extra pillows used as bolsters for comfort, enabling them to keep pressure off of the lower back and abdomen while allowing the therapist access into the muscles of the neck, shoulder girdle, thorax and hips. These areas are chronically stressed during pregnancy, and our gentle yet firm massage techniques can assist them to unwind and release. This ancient style of Lomi Lomi massage involves long, flowing strokes of the therapist’s forearms, elbows and hands as well as some gentle stretches, as appropriate. It is an integrative experience that incorporates as much of the body as possible and aims to restore a sense of unity within the mother in her relation to her own self and to her new baby.
