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.                                                                   ...

Therapist was very kind, definitely knew what she was doing, and made it a very relaxing experience!

I had a beautiful session! I learned so much, and got the treatment my body needed to heal on deeper level. Thank you Meli! I am suggesting this treatment to my mom, sister, and loved ones.

She's incredible. The gift she has to nurture and make you feel an hour of bliss is wonderful. For someone who is always thinking, working and moving quickly thru life, she helps me stop and be in the moment of relaxation.

Meli's technique if very gentle but effective. It is important to me to go to a massage therapist who specializes in pre and postnatal massage therapy. It's really nice to have an hour to yourself to relax and focus on yourself and your baby in a calming environment. Highly recommend!

Meli is so talented. This was the best prenatal massage I’ve ever received!! She’s amazing and I’d HIGHLY recommend her!!!

Meli was so sweet and let me know exactly what to expect during my induction massage. I would have left this review sooner, but I have been preoccupied with my newborn! I went into Nurtured Mama on a Wednesday (was scheduled to have a Foley bulb put in on Thursday and induction on Friday) as a final hope to get things rolling naturally. I had the most relaxing massage and loved the guided meditation. I ended up having my very first contractions that night and went into labor Thursday! The massage worked miracles! I highly recommend Meli and The Nurtured Mama!
