Individual Support and Treatments
While one of our missions at Mothering Touch is to connect parents with each other, we know that sometimes families need support that is focused on their particular needs. We offer consultations and treatments in various modalities and methods in our new, comfortable, private treatment rooms. Read more about all our practitioners.
Acupuncture can help to minimize or resolve many of the unpleasant "side-effects" of pregnancy - from swollen feet to nausea to insomnia. Jill Moran, our Acupuncturist, can also help with breastfeeding problems and other post-partum issues. Book an appointment now.
Some families need personalized support to meet the challenges of establishing breastfeeding. We have three Breastfeeding Educators on staff to help with positioning, latching, scheduling, pumping. Book an appointment now.
Massage treatments can be very beneficial for managing stress and anxiety, reducing muscle tension, and supporting your body through the unique changes that are happening throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. Come and enjoy a relaxing, pampering, soothing massage, lying on our special Pregnancy Pillows. It's such a relief to be able to lie on your tummy, even for a short while! Of course, the options of lying on your side or your back are also available. Our Registered Massage Therapist, Amanda Kihn, has a special interest in pregnancy and the postpartum. She loves treating and supporting new families. Book an appointment now.
Refloxology involves applying pressure to certain points on the feet and the hands. These reflex points are believed to correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them creates benefits for the patient's health. Our reflexologist, Linda Baril, is also a childbirth educator and doula. She has many years of experience of helping parents in late pregnancy, during labour and during the postpartum. Reflexology can relieve aches and pains, promote relaxation, and help with the progress of labour. Book an appointment now.
Some families value experienced support when working on teaching their child to sleep well (however they define the term). Eva Bild, our Sleep Consultant will meet with you to design a customized sleep plan for your child and your whole family. Book an appointment now.
Therapeutic counselling during pregnancy and the postpartum period can help parents adjust to the dramatic changes that come with parenthood. Theresa Gulliver, our Therapeutic Counsellor, will offer a safe and supportive space in which to explore and come to terms with these changes. Book an appointment now.
