First of all, I can't even begin to put into words how excited I am about the upcoming Spinning Babies workshop in Cleveland. Eeeks! My inner birth nerd is totally geeking out. Gail Tully is doing amazing work for birthing mamas. She is know for being the "Spinning Babies" lady who teaches women how to create optimal fetal positioning. She teaches belly mapping so mothers can figure out the positions of their child in the womb. She has exercises to help women prepare their body for birth and to turn breech babies. She also has tools to help birth doulas or their care providers recognize labor signs of a mispositioned baby and what to do turn him or her in labor. Her website www.spinningbabies.com is for both expecting mothers and birth professionals and it has a wealth of information. Each time I visit her website I learn new tools for my massage and doula clients. I have passed along her website countless times to expecting mamas. I encourage you to explore her site or join me at her workshop!
The Spinning Babies workshop is on Thursday May 1st or Friday May 2nd from 8:30-5:30pm. You can visit her website to register http://spinningbabies.com/classes/calendar-of-events.
The Womb Wellness Center is hosting another Baby Clinic on Friday March 21st from 10:00-3:00pm. Nancy Weidner will be offering infant treatments. The recommended donation is $15-$30 for a session. Crainosacral therapy is a gentle effective massage modality that is helpful for infants and children as well as adults. If possible, it is recommended for infants to receive treatment soon after birth. This can help to aid in health and well being as well as to reduce the repercussions of a difficult birth.
Craniosacral Therapy for Infants Can Help:
-fussy, hard to sooth babies
-babies who seem uncomfortable in their bodies
-babies who have digestive or elimination difficulties
-babies who have a difficult time breastfeeding with latching, favoring one side or position
-babies who favor turning their heads to one side
-babies who seem overly sensitive
-babies who hate tummy time

Often this is one of the first questions I get when I meet someone and tell them about my work: Do you have to be pregnant to get a massage at your studio? Do you massage Men? Do you massage women who are past childbearing years? I am not even thinking about having children will you work on me?
Yes of course! While I am passionate about working with fertility, pregnancy, and birth, I have been practicing massage for over 7 years and enjoy working on all types of people, both men and women, young and old. I have massage therapy training in sports massage, trigger point massage, injury massage, structural integration and connective tissue massage and incorporate these massage techniques into both wellness and deep tissue massage. Our intention for The Womb Wellness Center is to be a place for you to come to relax, tune into your body, and to heal. We want to be a place of refuge for you on your wellness journey. Wellness massage, Deep Tissue Massage, and Maya Abdominal therapy are all wonderful modalities for those of you who are not in your childbearing years. Receiving regular therapeutic massage is an effective treatment to reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
