Professional Birth Doula

In January I trained with Tara Powe and the Doulas of North America (DONA) to become a Birth Doula. A Birth Doula is also known as a Labor Coach or Birth Partner; the Doula is an experienced, non-medical, professional that works to enhance the childbirth experience for the mother, her partner, and her family through compassion and support.

Being a Reflexology Doula means I will bring my skills as a Reflexologist into the world of prenatal, labor, birth and postpartum.

To date I have attended three births towards certification with DONA. It is a wonderful experience to work with a client throughout her pregnancy and to witness the miracle of birth. Three beautiful baby girls so far with two more babies due in August!

New Reflexology Rates

Effective June 1st, 2007 the 60 minute reflexology session is $70 and the 30 minute hand reflexology session is $40.

Two New Summertime Treats!

Just in time for warm weather: our seasonal specials!

Arctic Blast for Tired Feet
Hot, tired and aching feet will welcome this treatment! Cooling aloe soothes sun-exposed skin, Witch Hazel acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, and selected essential oils (not used in prenatal sessions), compliment the treatment.
One hour......................................$70

Gardener's Hand Relief
After playing in the dirt treat your hands to some much deserved R&R with this treatment. Using Mother Nature's own ingredients in the form of a deeply therapeutic hand cream this session emphasizes relief for overworked hands.
Half-hour......................................$40

New Chair!

I am pleased to announce that I have a new Zero Gravity Chair here at the Lakeside Clinic. The biggest difference in this new chair is that it has a motor lift and conforms to your body a bit more than the old one. We've not retired the old chair though, we've just moved it to an alternate treatment room.


Description of the chair from BackSaver.com:
Our wood-frame Zero-Gravity Recliner takes its cues from a modernist era, with a sleek, curved armrest in natural, teak or walnut. The retracting legrest allows smooth exit and entry, and allows for an easy-to-achieve "conversation" position when you want to sit upright. The zero-gravity position, however, takes on whole new levels of comfort with the softness of leather, and an adjustable neck roll of WonderFoam® will have you relaxed in no time. Weight limit: 275 lbs.
