Postpartum packages now 150€

** A great baby shower gift for those Mums-to-be! Postpartum can be a new and overwhelming time. Sometimes you need a little extra help. The kraamzorg may have stopped but you still have some questions, need some help around the house or need some general “mama pampering”. You may use these appointments however you want. Combine some help with a massage or just use the full amount of time for a relaxing massage :-)

Now offering Lomi Lomi Hapai pregnancy massage

** A wonderful massage experience using traditional Hawaiian techniques. Check out my services page but mention this add and get 10% discount on a 1 hour massage until May 2017
