Available for at-home sessions, Pauline is a licensed Massage Therapist
who performs relaxation massage and Reiki massage. Relaxation massage
uses moderate pressure to work out any tightness in the muscles and positively
impacts the circulatory system. Reiki is an ancient form of gentle healing
that is the laying of hands on the seven chakras, or energy vortexes enabling
energy to flow freely through the body. Trying to get pregnant can be
very stressful, emotionally and physically. For the body to be as open
and receptive to getting pregnant as possible, Pauline believes it needs
to be at peace and this is where massage therapy can help.
