Every Saturday is Community Day
All genders are welcome! Our only requirement is that you are healthy & human.
It is at the heart of our mission to provide a sanctuary, an affinity space if you will, to women. We have always had an open definition of "women"-- that is, people identified as female at birth or who identify as female or non-binary. But in acknowledgment that all people need a massage, we are opening every Saturday for bodywork for people of all genders.

Pressure & Pain Relief
Offered in a side-lying position, the safest and most comfortable way to receive prenatal massages. Massage can create a significant reduction in back pain, headaches, hip pain, sciatica, swelling, and more. This is the best massage for that lower back pain that many pregnant women will be familiar with. The Well for Women therapists have the most collective experience in prenatal and postnatal massage in New Haven. This is a beautiful way to practice self-care, so why not treat yourself or a loved one to a special mother-to-be massage?
Reduce Swelling & Relax
Relaxation and recovery, from birth and the demands of infant care
Post-delivery massage for mothers is a great way to jump-start your post-birth recovery: relieve sore muscles from the birth work, reduce back pain from nursing and baby care, and learn recovery exercises. Careful abdominal massage can assist in the return of normal digestion and tighten loose skin. We position you carefully to avoid pressure on your chest and belly. This postnatal massage will help you unwind, as well as strengthen your body for the next stage in your motherhood journey.
We are now offering Gua Sha as an add-on to your massage.
Speed up natural muscle recovery and alleviate long-term chronic pain with this traditional Chinese massage technique.
BIRTH PARTNER MASSAGE
Massage Your Partner During Pregnancy & Contractions
This two-hour, hands-on class allows your husband, partner, or friend to learn how to be actively involved in easing the discomforts of pregnancy and birthing. Birth partner massage covers relevant anatomy, contraindications, techniques for relief of common pregnancy muscular discomforts, and massage ergonomics for pregnant women. You'll also learn great pain-relief techniques for labor, where and when to use them, and many other comfort measures. We’ll also go into the best massage techniques for lower back pain, a common issue for pregnant women, so that you can unwind at home.
If you are feeling nervous about getting an after delivery body massage, or you want some advice on the best massage techniques for lower back pain while you’re pregnant, please get in touch. Back massages for pregnant women, or postpartum body massage therapy, should provide the ultimate pain relief and relaxation! We want you to feel comfortable and calm when you visit our New Haven massage sanctuary, so let us know how we can best accommodate your needs.
