In-Home Prenatal and Postpartum Massage Services


Prenatal and Postpartum Massage

    We believe self care, especially during pregnancy and postpartum, is so important. The pregnancy and the postpartum time, while exciting, can be tiring. Instead of trying to find time and energy to go get a massage, let us bring the massage to you!

    Jessica Ciacelli first became interested in massage after experiencing first hand the benefits she received with regular massage to help treat her scoliosis as a child. She went on to obtain her massage certification through Owens Community College in 2014.  Jessica’s passion for self-care during pregnancy led her to receive additional training in prenatal massage. She is a licensed massage therapist (LMT) specializing in prenatal & therapeutic massage. In addition, she is also an affiliated postpartum doula with Nurtured Foundation.
