Prenatal & 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 with our in-home prenatal and postpartum massage services!

 

Meet Alesha
Hello! My name is Alesha. I’m a mother to 4 kids ranging in ages from 8-2 years old. After earning a Degree in Massage in 2012 from Cuyahoga Community College,prenatal massage I knew that I wanted to focus on prenatal/postpartum massage. I soon completed additional training from Nurturing the Mother, certifying in Prenatal/Postpartum Massage.  I was a mom to 1 little boy at the time, but I knew that pregnancy was my passion. I love seeing the changes in clients from when they walk in, to when they walk out.

 

My goal is to always make sure a client is comfortable, and satisfied with the work that I do. Every mom should feel taken care of, and that’s what I hope to accomplish. 

Alesha serves the west side of Cleveland suburbs.
