Alisa, Sarah & the women of Blooma
Q :: What kind of massage do you specialize in, and what should I expect as a first-timer to see you?
A :: I specialize in several types of massage, including prenatal, postnatal, infant, cupping, deep tissue and MRT (a technique that stretches and elongates the muscles). I listen carefully to what you need, and bring a warm and down-to-earth approach to structural healing.
Q :: What is it that you love about massaging mamas? (And do you take appointments for partners, too?)
A :: I love being a part of the birth journey for women and families, and I’m honored to provide emotional, physical, and spiritual support during the childbearing years. I enjoy helping moms melt their muscles … either preparing them for birth or helping their bodies rejuvenate after birth. Putting life back into one’s body makes my heart sing! I’ve been called the “Epi-Doula” — magic hands!
I also regularly work on partners, family members, and friends, too — anyone can see me at Blooma. My massages are tailored to what you need.
Q :: Tell us more about you? What kinds of things make your heart swell and what do you love doing outside of the massage room?
A :: When not working at Blooma, I can be found working at HCMC as a doula on the Birthing Unit. You’ll also find me enjoying new restaurants, live music, and the arts with friends new and old.
