Mis Ofrendas - My Offerings
Sobar is Spanish for massage or rub but it is not limited to the physical. A sobada integrates mind body soul and spirit. There is a communication that happens between the muscles, the nervous system and our emotions. I can tune in and aide in any healing release of tension and/or emotion, a somatic release. I also incorporate my knowledge in structural bodywork, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, reflexology, acupressure, and relaxation bodywork to fine tune my technique. This includes holding space in a trauma informed way.
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. As well as addressing the shifting of the fascia.
Prenatally this is a side lying massage with focus on optimal fetal positioning.
Postpartum this massage is to help you feel "put back together" includes abdominal and womb care.
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.
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.
My path of learning from several elders has taught me how important it is to re-connect to ourselves and with our natural cycles, rhythms and vibration. And how nature plays a big part in our healing. We should honor and respect mother Earth, Tonanzin. These techniques can aide in just that, reconnection, which include drumming using a sonaja (Mexican rattle) and canto/singing. As well as limpias (cleansings) using eggs, herbs/brooms or feathers and the burning of dried herbs or resins like copal. One of the oldest tools is the platica, the oral tradition of holding space. I also incorporate the use of Tibetan singing bowls, crystals and hot stones. As well as Rebozo Therapy if needed.
Let me know what days and times work best for you, each week is different for me. Also, I am a working doula and am usually on call for a pregnant person.
