Caring for your mind, body and spirit is always important and never more so than during pregnancy and postpartum. Prenatal massage helps to prepare your rapidly changing body for an easier delivery through relaxation techniques and the relief of aches and pains that arise during pregnancy.

Combining both up-to-date-conventional medical knowledge and the wisdom of Traditional Maya Medicine (proven techniques used by Maya midwives for centuries), we are extensively trained to address many common ailments that occur during pregnancy, from low back pain and sciatica to headaches and round ligament pain.


Your health partner through pregnancy and beyond

  • For optimum well-being, contact us as early in your pregnancy as you can.

  • After 21 weeks, we provide a more comprehensive Maya Abdominal Massage specially tailored to pregnancy.

  • Your body will change rapidly during pregnancy, which is why we recommend scheduling a Maya prenatal massage visit every four weeks up to 36 weeks.

  • At the 36th week, we recommend a Maya prenatal massage every two weeks until term to support easier labor and delivery.
