Benefits of Massage:
Maternity massage has many benefits. Prenatal and postpartum massage eases the aches and pains associated with pregnancy and early newborn care, promotes better sleep, provides emotional and physical support for the natural changes of the body, and increases parent-baby bonding.
Infant massage contributes to proper brain development by enhancing sensory and motor development, boosts the infant immune system, increases sleep periods and decreases fussy periods, strengthens caregiver intuition and communication with their infant - and it is a really fun activity for parents and babies to share!
Therapeutic massage for all people can reduce muscle tension; create feelings of care, comfort, and connection that help to manage stress; relieve headaches, migraines, and insomnia related to soft tissue disorders, relieve postoperative pain, increase energy, and integrate physical changes associated with age, injury, or life events.
Our Most Frequently Asked Questions:
also answered in more detail on our website, but to get you started...
You are called mountain mama massage. I’m not a mama. Can I still get a massage?
YES! We pride ourselves on creating a safe space for every client who comes to our table. We believe that all persons are created equal and welcome all genders, all gender-identities, all family formations, all sizes, all colors, all cultures, all beliefs, all religions, all ages --- all people.
Can I buy a gift certificate?
YES! You can purchase immediately printable gifts for yourself or others online in the secure online shop. Gift certificates may be redeemed with any massage therapist and any location at Mountain Mama Massage.
How do I schedule a session (massage, yoga, virtual etc)?
All sessions are by appointment only and can be easily scheduled through our online calendar or by calling/texting. At times, the calendar does get busy. If you don’t see what you need we highly recommend you add yourself to our online waitlist. Plans change and we sometimes have last-minute appointments open due to illness or birth.
I still have some questions. Can I talk to a human?
Absolutely. Give us a call, shoot us a text, or send us an email. We spend much of our time with our hands on clients, but we will get back to you as soon as possible (and definitely in the next 48 hours).
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not massaging?
We all love to adventure in the great outdoors (it is Colorado after all!) solo or with family and friends. We happen to also all be creatives who love to engage with art including singing, painting, cooking, and making up silly stories for our children and pets.
