I’ve been a women’s health professional since 1984, working as a labor & delivery nurse, health educator, and massage therapist. In addition to offering ultra-relaxing therapeutic massage, I also specialize in womb & belly health, pregnancy & postnatal care, infertility, and sacro-iliac/pelvic floor issues.
In addition to nursing and massage therapy, I’m a writer, silk-painter, dancer, and wild foods enthusiast. I’ve been blessed to have wise mentors, inspirational teachers, and unusual experiences and adventures, including travel by horse cart with gypsies, years of wilderness solitude and study of earth skills, training in wilderness Rites of Passage, and personal encounters, during years of research, with whales and dolphins. All this influences my individualized bodywork approach with you!
Note: I use special cushions that make your experience more comfortable! No more discomforts from breast compression or low back strain from lying flat on massage tables—Large breasted, lactating, and pregnant women will especially love them!
MotherTouch™ Pregnancy & Postnatal Massage: Relaxing, Restorative, & Therapeutic bodywork to reduce stress, ease aches and pains, support optimal baby positioning, prepare for and recover from birth, or reduce scar tissue from cesarean. Also: Acupressure and Massage training for birthing couples and doulas.
Integrative Pelvic Bodywork, including Holistic Pelvic Care™ and Mayan Abdominal Massage: Gentle external and internal myofascial release, hip mobilizations, rebalancing techniques, and abdominal bodywork to restore pelvic health and vitality.
Fertility Enhancement: Infertility sometimes is caused by abdominal-pelvic scar tissue and torsion of the womb, pelvic floor, and bony pelvis. Pelvic-Abdominal Bodywork can help restore function, circulation, and fertility.
Relaxation Massage: Flowing strokes of Swedish massage blended with acupressure, cranial sacral and deep tissue manipulations can de-stress your mind and body and restore your sense of centeredness and presence. Try massage in the sidelying position—the most relaxing way to receive bodywork!
Therapeutic Treatment: For conditions such as hip and pelvic pain, sacro-iliac discomfort, sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches, scar tissue, focused manual therapy sessions are the way to go. We enter “body-time” allowing for scar tissue to release, emotional tension to dissolve, and the natural mobility of the body to be restored.
Products: I’m the author of Nurturing Massage for Pregnancy, the co-producer of MotherTouch Films, and instructor on the DVD Mastering Pregnancy Massage. Check out my products and services at http://www.LeslieStager.com
