Acupressure for Birth: Beginning at 37 weeks gestation, when approved by your care provider, I can provide in-home acupressure services to help prepare your body for labor. I use a doula-specific protocol designed by a licensed Acupuncturist to help prepare your body for a smoother transition into labor and birth.
Reiki (Coming Soon): Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch.
A Sound Healing Bath is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound waves. These waves are produced by healing instruments (in this case Tibetan Singing Bowls) with specific resonance and overtones. My set of Tibetan Singing Bowls was hand made under the full moon of each month in the traditional crafting process. They are one of the most precious gifts I’ve ever received.
Body Scan Meditation is a type of meditation where our focused attention is on our body. We begin with our toes, scan up our body and end with our toes. It’s a pretty awesome body awareness technique and one of my favorite meditations!
These skills are currently available to my holistic doula clients as additional options for prenatal sessions. I am hoping to be able to offer some of these options in more community-focused settings in the near future!
