Spa Materna’s licensed therapists specialize in pampering mothers-to-be with pregnancy massage modalities, including fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum, as well as Swedish rub-downs for nonpregnant women or men. Beginning each session with aromatherapy, therapists tailor hand movements to suit the first, second, or third trimester, alleviating physical tension, fatigue, and emotional stress at each stage. Fertility massages strive to open and balance bodies in preparation for conception, and a postpartum massage ameliorates the stresses of motherhood and resolves tiredness linked to late-night feedings or daytime feedings while running a marathon.
After each relaxing massage, guests can check out Spa Materna's boutique that is stocked with organic skincare products, mobiles handcrafted by a local woodworker, and the staff's own tie-dyes. Tucked inside a relaxation room, a lending library fills minds with pregnancy-related knowledge, such as which Dostoyevsky audiobook to play for babies in the womb.:m]]
