Infant Massage Instruction

The ancient art of baby massage has been practiced by many cultures and is easy to learn ... and massaging baby will help you develop the loving touch you already possess! This class involves hands-on training in the positions, strokes and intents of baby massage. Infant massage benefits are both physiological and psychological for the baby and parents. It enables bonding between the parent and child, improves the baby’s muscle tone, digestive, circulatory and respiratory functions, increases stimulation to the nervous system, and encourages better sleeping patterns. Infant massage is suitable for all ages of babies starting as young as two weeks old, and it’s best to start massaging early.

In a 4 week course, you will learn how to massage your baby and provide him or her with a full therapeutic body massage. 

Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation is an additional service provided by Jennie Mills.

Whether you are a Doula client or just need this service, she will assist you through the process.

Your placenta will be picked up from your place of birth or home and returned in capsule form with 24-72 hours.

Jennie follows the Traditional Chinese Medicine 'recipe' when encapsulating the placenta for the mother’s use  This method of preparation retains some of the nutrients and hormones present in the placenta at the time of birth – to help the new parent with their postpartum transition – and preserve the energetic qualities of the life-sustaining placenta.

Jennie follows OSHA guidelines for the safe handling and disposal of human tissue in all stages of the process.

The Richway Far-Infrared BioMat is an FDA approved medical device that uses amethyst and tourmaline crystals to produce infra-red heat waves and negative ions in a safe and natural way that help engage the body's natural healing mechanisms at the molecular level to administer deep soothing stimulation. The core of the BioMat technology is a combination of far infrared rays, negative ion and the conductive properties of amethyst channels. It provides lasting relief from muscle spasms, sprains and strains, joint pain associated with arthritis, minor muscle pain and more. Lying on the mat during a massage treatment or without a massage induces a blissful state of relaxation, reduces inflammation and muscle tension, boosts the immune system, increases circulation and tissue oxygen, and enhances serotonin. If you are interested in adding this therapy to your treatment, please let us know before your treatment.
