Women’s Integrative Massage

Established in 1995 as a massage clinic specializing in pregnancy, high-risk pregnancy and postpartum, the clinic now called Women’s Integrative Massage is dedicated to women-specific conditions and is the only area in the Cooperative that is exclusively by and for women. We go out of our way to ensure that every woman feels personally cared for and valued at each and every visit. Bodyworkers in this clinic are highly-specialized, recognizing that each woman’s body is dynamic and unique, storing her life experiences, her future ambitions and all the multi-dimensional complexities of her current life stage. Our approach to bodywork is often firm and targeted to resolve pain, increase range of motion and relieve stress & tension…in mind and body.

Services

Clinical Massage

Women in all life stages can expect highly specialized clinical therapeutic massage targeting muscles commonly overused or injured in a woman’s body. In our cozy and nurturing environment treatments can be quiet and restorative, investigative, educational, targeted, humorous, or reassuring; where appropriate referrals and resources are provided. A variety of integrative techniques and modalities are used in every treatment; we also have a community of clinical professionals who are available for integrative assistance if needed. 60 min. $87; 75 min. $102; 90 min. $117

Dynamic Bodywork

Massage, myofascial techniques, breath-work and decompressing stretch come together to restore the inherent potential that resides within your body’s joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and fascia. Designed to liberate movement in women of all life stages, gentle and effective in pregnancy and following. Here we combine 45-minutes of manual therapy with 30-minutes of FST, an assisted-stretch modality that, unlike traditional stretching, affects an integrated system not just an isolated muscle or muscle group. This session helps to relieve pain caused by tension, makes gains in flexibility/range of motion, removes muscle knots and improves posture, agility and strength. All while calming the nervous system.

Prenatal Massage

This clinic has specialized in pregnancy/postpartum pain-management for over 20 years. Moms can expect clinical massage therapy that is firm and targeted, quiet and restorative, investigative, educational or reassuring. Special treatment tables and cushioning systems combine to custom-fit each stage, shape and condition of pregnancy; positions can include face-down, side-lying, semi-reclined or seated upright. 60 min. $87; 75 min. $102; 90 min $117

Postpartum Massage

The focus here is balancing mobility and stability in a newly postpartum body. This session often targets specific pain caused by muscle knots, tension, impingements or ligament laxity. Scheduling up to 3 sessions will help Mom adjust to new use and overuse patterns created in caring for a newborn and adjusting to less sleep. This session differs from the Bringing Baby session in that multiple modalities can be used to target acute pain and tension, FST which is an assisted-stretch modality can be used, stretching with babies on the treatment table is not permitted, therefore bringing baby to these sessions is not recommended (babies may however remain in a car seat). This session is best received 10-days through 4 months postpartum. 60 min. $87; 75 min. $102; 90 min. $117

Labor Encouragement

Because this session works with the autonomic nervous system and the inherent wisdom of placental mammals it is only effective if scheduled after 4:30pm (Nov-April) 6pm (May-Oct).

Unless facing a medically necessary induction, this session is not provided sooner than 40wks gestation. It is advised that you create an appointment for this session a month or more prior to the estimated due date (scheduling for the due date or following) cancelling it if it is not needed, as availability for this session can become limited! For full efficacy, do not schedule acupuncture for induction within 24hrs before or after this treatment.  It is completely safe for mom to drive herself to and from this session.  This is a specialty session and cannot be used as part of any special offer. $105  

NOTE: Our online booking system does not allow us to block availability (for instance before 4:30pm) for individual treatments so when searching times be sure to book your session for 4:30pm or following during the appropriate time of year.

Bringing Baby

Hard to imagine, but true! Newborns 1-8 weeks are sweetly tucked in with Mom on the table while she receives fluid-flushing and muscle recovery massage techniques. Our special massage tables and highly-skilled (baby whispering) massage therapists make all the difference here! This session is scheduled for 90-minutes but comes to about 60-75 minutes of memorable, restorative and comforting hands-on massage. A great photo op for the baby book and a wonderful way for Mom to get her confidence in an outing with baby (and a great shower gift). Need more targeted pain and tension relief? See Postpartum Massage for more details.

Massage Tips

Expecting moms should arrive to every massage session well hydrated (70+ ounces or more of water within the previous 24 hour period); reschedule your treatment if you feel that your immune system has been compromised in the 5 days previous to your scheduled appointment.  Please arrive no sooner than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled session for restroom use and intake forms.
