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.

Reduce Swelling & Relax
Massage 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.
