Paule-Dominique loves to massage women who are pregnant, and teaching women how to massage their babies. It is her mission to educate, nurture and be a witness to these women during this brand new experience of their life cycle.
Paule-Dominique is a graduate of California Pacific Medical Center's Institute for health and Healing Integrated Medicine Education Program in San Francisco. She has worked with the Women's Health Resource Center at California Pacific Medical Center. She has also worked in a department dedicated to women's health needs. One of her duties there was to help massage mothers who have had a c-section.
Postpartum Massage helps relieve aches and pans, as many women deal with aching shoulders, necks and upper backs from all those hours of holding, nursing and loving that newborn. Dads & Partners can have a massage at the same time. Postpartum massage is safe immediately to 24-hours after you've given birth. Whenever you are able to get in for your first postpartum massage - it'll be well needed and deserved!
If your delivery had complications or involved surgery (C-section delivery), we will need to discuss modifying the massage to ensure your comfort and safety. For moms who are unable to find childcare or unable to leave their infant at home, Voilà La Familia make allowances for you to bring your baby into the massage - either with another caregiver present, next to the massage table in a stroller, or at times, even on the table (with mom lying on her side). But sometimes it is the only option available to some women.
"My husband scheduled a massage for me with Viola; it was amazing. The space was very peaceful and relaxing. I am currently in my 2nd trimester of my pregnancy, and I have been so sore and tense. My massage was applied with the right amount of pressure and care. She was very aware of my body in it's current state and she talked to me about what I wanted from the experience.
This was a great experience for me, and I would definitely go back to the establishment."
