Abdominal Therapy for Fertility, Pregnancy, Moving Through Postpartum – First Appointment – 2 hours


This massage is designed to support you through your ‘childbearing year’. It’s a loose timeline to include the time of pre-conception, pregnancy and then postpartum. You will discover the importance of flow in N.A.V.E.L. (nerves, arteries, veins, energy and lymph) systems, the balance and buoyancy of the uterus and allowing space to feel all that needs to be felt.

The treatment includes:

  • a consultation to asses your health needs
  • a 60 minute massage including the abdomen and back
  • Marisa teaching you YAM (Your Abdominal Massage) which you can carry out daily to support the health of your body and baby (and your partner can come along too in order to learn the YAM and perform this delicious belly massage on you)
  • if you are in your conception phase the massage is beneficial in priming the body to receive and support new life (it can also be beneficial for your partner to come along for a treatment as well to ensure both parties are ripe and ready!)
  • if you are in the last few weeks of pregnancy there are moves to help move things along into labour
  • an introduction to tools and techniques that can support the mother including belly wraps, vaginal steaming, food, movement and additional support recommendations

Pregnancy and birth is one of the greatest miracles on earth and Marisa feels blessed to be able to work in this realm.

This massage is based on the lineage of Don Elijio Panti and Dr Rosita Arvigo. It was shared with Rosita via traditional midwives including Miss Hortense Robinson. It has been refined with the input of modern-day midwives, doulas and fertility specialists over the years.

Sliding payment scale available on request.
