Mis Ofrendas - My Offerings
Sobar is Spanish for massage or rub. I also incorporate my knowledge in structural bodywork, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, reflexology, acupressure, and relaxation bodywork to fine tune my technique.
This is a sobada focused on the changes to the body during pregnancy, birth & postpartum. Including a belly massage to help alleviate tension to the muscles and ligaments surrounding the uterus, low back and pelvis. This also allows more oxygenated blood to the stretched and over worked tissues helping them stay healthy.
Prenatally this is a side lying massage with focus on optimal fetal positioning.
Postpartum this massage is to help you feel "put back together"
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
I've learned through local elders as well as elders from Mexico, who taught me how important it is to connect with our natural rhythm and energy as well as nature's. These techniques include drumming, using a sonaja (Mexican rattle) and singing/humming. As well as limpias (cleansings) using herbs or feathers and the burning of dried herbs or resins like copal. I also incorporate the use of Tibetan singing bowels, crystals and hot stones. And Rebozo Therapy if needed.
There is a vast difference between therapists that claim "to be able to do" pre-natal massages and those that actually can. Definitely the fact that Iris is a certified doula plays into the fact that she is stellar in her skills, knowledge, and overall practice. I highly recommend her to anyone that is not only pregnant, but overall to anyone. If she knows how to take care of a woman in the most delicate time of her life, she surely knows how to otherwise.
