All Mamas need to be Nurtured

I feel that massage during pregnancy tremendously helps both mom and baby.  In addition to common aches and pains, massage can help calm anxiety, nervousness and stress about birth.  Studies have shown that pregnancy massage is linked to better birth experiences, less complications and less drug interventions.  Come see what it can for you.                                                                   ...

Meli is a skilled massage therapist and I always feel so much better after a massage. She uses just the right amount of pressure to help work out knots without causing pain.

Most relaxing pressure point massage I’ve had ????

Melinda focused on my needs and had the most gentle but firm touch!! It was a wonderful massage!

Melinda is amazing! I went to her for fertility massage and after years of trying I am pregnant with my first child! Now I go to her for prenatal massage and she not only gives a great massage she takes the time to check in on me. She genuinely cares about her clients and she has been my saving grace more than once through this whole process.

Melinda is extremely knowledgeable in her field and provides warmth and caring in her technique. I hadn't gotten a massage in a long time, and enjoyed every minute of Melinda's massage. I highly recommend her and the Nurtured Mama for mothers to be and mothers in general!
