Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Nurturing the Mother Fertility & Prenatal Massage
Fertility and Prenatal Massage - Completed this multi-faceted training and currently offer support for couples attempting to conceive naturally and also working with fertility specialists to help those using IUI or IVF. Prenatal massage supports the expectant mom throughout the pregnancy, reducing pain and improving the entire experience. Postpartum and infant massage instruction are also available.
Massage Cupping
Cupping can be thought of as the inverse of massage - utilizing vacuum pressure to enhance circulation, help relieve pain and pull out the toxins that linger in our body's tissues. Cupping was developed thousands of years ago and though the techniques have modernized the original philosophy is the same - supporting your body's amazing ability to heal itself.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
A delicate, light massage to support lymphatic flow, MLD provides non-invasive and natural pain relief after plastic surgery, during pregnancy and for those experiencing edema (swelling).

I have had many massages by many different massage therapists, Anita at Serene Body Works gave the best deep tissue massage I have ever experience hands down. Anita truely listened to what I felt I needed and worked those areas. Anita was professional, kind, honest and had a great sense of humor. Amazing experience, I have found my message home!
