Blissful Mama equals Blissful Baby
In the Maharishi Vedic Medicine tradition, the key to creating a more blissful baby is first to create a more blissful parent, particularly a more blissful mom-- a mother who feels nourished herself, even as she prepares to nourish her child. This philosophy centers around nurturing the nurturer...or nurturer-to-be.

Prenatal & Postpartum Abhyanga
In Ayurveda, anointing the body with warm nourishing oil is the ultimate act of self love. The ancient Vedic texts emphasize the importance of daily oil massages to bring joy, suppleness and youth to the whole body and spirit. The beauty of pregnancy and childbirth can be accompanied with tremendous transformations and varying degrees of stress. This bliss-filled Abhyanga treatment seamlessly weaves in soothing footbaths, warm compresses and calming aromatherapy to nurture all layers of the mama's being. Leave feeling radically grounded and restored. Includes infant massage for Post Partum Mamas.
Prenatal & Postpartum Reiki
Research studies show that pregnant women who receive Reiki on a regular basis experience a 94% reduction in stress and anxiety, a 78% reduction in pain, a 80% reduction in morning sickness and an 86% improvement in sleep quality. Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive subtle energy balancing treatment that allows both the mama and baby to feel profoundly relaxed, connected and balanced both physically and energetically.
The Third Eye & Fertility Connection
The third eye, the region that dwells deep inside the brain is home to the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland and pineal gland. These three powerful structures work synergistically to control various organs in the body including hormone regulation and the production of the reproductive follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), essential in the function of women's ovaries and men's testes. FSH activates the growth of ovarian follicles in women's ovaries prior to the release of an egg at ovulation. Low FSH levels can lead to stunted ovarian follicle growth, obstructing the release of an egg, leading to infertility. For men, FSH is also necessary for proper testes development and sperm count. Fertility in both men and women requires balanced levels of FSH. Excess or insufficient levels decrease the probability of pregnancy.
Shirodhara for Infertility
Shirodhara is the quintessential Ayurvedic therapy that brings pure bliss to the mind, with powerful ripple effects throughout the body. Often described as a psycho-spiritual massage that awakens the third eye. Warm, soothing oil continously penetrates the third eye activating the three primary glands: hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal while profoundly reducing stress, infertility and sleep disorders. When combined with a healthy liftestyle regimen, food and exercise plan, this treatment dramatically boosts all organ and hormone functions to an optimal level.
