Suzu is very excited to be at Prana Prenatal Yoga and Education where she is offering Prenatal and Postpartum Massage, as well as Blessingways/Birth Circles and Postpartum healings:
For the mom-to-be, Suzu offers a wonderfully soothing and healing Prenatal Massage; combining Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT®) with Western Prenatal Massage techniques. The ATMAT® Prenatal Massage, when received on a regular basis (4-5 times throughout pregnancy) not only relieves the general aches and pains of pregnancy, but it has also been reported to help create ease and efficiency during labor. The self-care protocol, that she will teach you for daily use between sessions, complements the work that you will do together, inviting a sweet bonding experience with your yet-to-be-born baby.
Oh that 4th Trimester! Suzu also offers postpartum healing massage and energy work to gently bring you and your body back to center whether you have had an easy or challenging pregnancy and/or birth, your body, heart, mind and spirit have definitely been “stretched” on all levels. This loving, gentle bodywork and healing ceremony (as taught to her by teachers of indigenous healing traditions; ATMAT® and others) will invite you to heal on multiple levels, this can be very helpful in preventing, and/or helping those who are experiencing, early signs of postpartum depression.
The Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy is a very specific protocol of abdominal massage and pelvic alignment that helps to correct the position of the uterus, and other organs, and aids circulation of blood, lymph, and nerve conduction; thereby improving general health as well as reproductive and digestive health. ATMAT® has been very effective in helping people with IBS, Reflux, Painful Menstrual Cramps, Amenorrhea, Fertility Issues, Enlarged Prostate, Heavy Leg Syndrome and more.
For those who may be living with long term illnesses or recovering from surgery, Suzu also offers Oncology and Mastectomy Massage, and/or Urban Zen Integrative Therapy; which is a gentler protocol of pain management that incorporates Reiki, guided visualization and essential oils to help with the pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia and constipation that are often present
Whatever your individual and unique needs may be, Suzu looks forward to helping you restore and maintain a beautiful balance of health and well-being for your body, mind, heart and spirit.
