What Our Clients Say…

"Jaci's prenatal massages are hands down the best massages I have ever had. Each week of my pregnancy I arrived bigger and heavier, and yet after every massage I left feeling lighter, more relaxed and more deeply connected to my growing baby."

Siobhan M.

"Jaci’s technique and touch have been extremely beneficial. I recommend her to athletes of all ages."

Johnny S.

"Anytime I spent with you prepared me more for birth than going to any other person. I was always so much more confident getting a massage from you because you bring such breadth and depth of knowledge to the process."

Vanessa G.

"I’m so glad I had Jaci encapsulate my placenta. She hand-delivered the pills to my home, along with my son’s umbilical cord in a sweet keepsake bag. The process was easy, and it felt great knowing that all the nutrients my placenta had to offer me did not go to waste."

Emily R.

"I looked forward to Jaci’s prenatal yoga classes every week, especially during the last stretch of my pregnancy. I loved connecting with other expecting moms, and I always left feeling calm, fit, and refreshed."

Emily R.

"[Jaci’s] massage has been a lifesaver for me. Not only is my back better, but also her massage helps relieve the stress and tension my body accumulates between visits."

Mary S.

"I used the slow steady breathing from yoga all during my birth. And the simple touch of Jaci’s hands during the relaxation portion at the end of class is enough to make your eyes roll into the back of your head -- an incredible way to relax."

Michelle G.

“Jaci's prenatal massages are hands down the best massages I have ever had. Each week of my pregnancy I arrived bigger and heavier, and yet after every massage I left feeling lighter, more relaxed and more deeply connected to my growing baby. Thank you!”

Siobhan M.

“I decided to encapsulate my placenta with both of my babies. I truly think it made my recovery quicker...I feel I was able to truly enjoy the precious first weeks with my newborn babies with a clear mind and a good energy level.”
