Duo Treatment for Pregnant Women and their Partner
Together with my colleague Ana Goedbloed (a massage therapist @ Being Fields as well), we offer a special treatment for pregnant couples. While I massage the pregnant mama, Ana will massage her partner. We feel both parents deserve care and nourishment before their baby comes earthside.
When we meet I am open to hear what type of massage you would like to receive and what your specific wishes are. This massage also includes a short intake on where you are in your pregnancy.
Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage
Lomi Lomi is a full body massage. It uses intuitive movement, breath, rhythm and focused intention to bring about alignment of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Continuous movements (hands and forearms) are used around the body in a dynamic fluid way. Coconut oil is used during treatment.
Connective Tissue Massage (back)
Connective tissue is the soft tissue that surrounds, supports, protects, and connects each and every structure in the body. Fascial shortening and restriction are released almost instantly in this, bringing an immediate and deep feeling of relief from tension. This massage is a distinctive sensory experience. No oils or lotions are applied to the body. The approach is intense but no painful, which allows your body to relax during the session. During the treatment I often hear this simple but powerful phrase from my clients: “Ahhh! Relief.”
Refreshing Facial-Neck massage
The face is full of nerves and yummie pleasure points. This treatment helps with micro-circulation, releases tension softening the facial expression. It can help dispel tiredness, leaving you feeling refreshed.

Let’s find out what you prefer when we meet! Oil or lotion is used during treatment.
