Pre and Perinatal Therapies

Lakshmi has over 20 years of experience working with those who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or who have recently given birth. Lakshmi provides several different types of therapies for those in the pre (pregnant) and perinatal (first 1,000 days since conception) period. Lakshmi offers preconception massage, prenatal massage, postpartum massage, infant massage, and offers classes for partners about how to use massage during pregnancy and birth. Lakshmi uses CranioSacral Therapy and Myofascial Release to encourage the body to relax, improve posture, release tension and stress, improve sleep, and to reduce pain. 

Lakshmi also works with those during the perinatal period through yoga therapy including how to use breath, yoga poses, meditation, and deep relaxation for the physical, mental and spiritual challenges of this important period. 

Somatic Experiencing and The Safe and Sound Protocol are also used to help those preparing for pregnancy and birth to regulate their nervous systems, process any undigested trauma held in their bodies, and to move into a calm and grounded state all of which are essential to prepare for pregnancy and birth.

Lakshmi helps her clients learn to connect and bond with their baby which helps with healthy attachment. She has a special passion for helping those with birth trauma including babies through CranioSacral therapy, SSP and Somatic Experiencing. Pregnancy and birth are times of great change, and change can be challenging and not always easy. Lakshmi is here to help.

Lakshmi also offers pelvic floor yoga therapy to help balance the muscles of the pelvic floor before, during, or after pregnancy. This work is essential to help the pelvic floor recover and remain supportive and integrated for posture, movement, support of the organs, and overall health. 

Lakshmi tailors each session to the individual's needs and goals. Known for her sensitivity and intuition about what the body needs, Lakshmi's pre and perinatal sessions are powerful and effective while guiding the client into a state of deep relaxation and release. She focuses on trusting the body's inherent intelligence and ability to unwind and heal. 

Lakshmi is currently in the process of completing her certification with Postpartum Support International's Pre and Perinatal Mental Health Affiliate Program and the Association of Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health's Educator Program. Upon her graduation with her Master's in Social Work, Lakshmi will add pre and perinatal mental health counseling to her services. 

Sessions are 60 or 90 minutes In-person only $130 for 60, $160 for 90. Sessions are available Friday-Sunday.

All sessions are performed at A New Day Integrative Health and Wellness 1148 Executive Circle Unit 3,

Those moving through the pre and perinatal period deserve authentic support, respect, to be seen and heard, and to feel their best through compassion, connection, empathy, and encouragement.
