a night of loving making to create a baby = simple
having to deal with a pregnant wife = not so simple
Not to say my wife is difficult but she's had her moments and well deserved. Now well into her third trimester my wife has started to feel sore and minor pain. All of which is normal but I don't want to have to deal with massaging her everyday, I get tired too :)
I wanted to surprise my wife with a little R&R. This is where the Mommy Spa came to mind. I spoke to Lindsay, the owner, and she was super nice. I wanted to make it super stress free so I took care of everything so that all she had to do was show up and get pampered. Lindsay took care of everything over the phone and set my wife up with Ruth who is an Associate Therapist on staff. I called the same day and I was able to book an appointment that evening. When it was over my wife said she felt great. She said that Ruth was awesome. Before the massage they went through a series of questions to make sure my wife was ok for a massage. I guess when your pregnant you can't just get any message due to pressure points among other things. All I know is that it was just what my wife needed as she looked very relaxed and wasn't complaining about being sore or any pain. I know that is only for the meantime so I will be calling to set up another appointment next month which I'm sure my wife will be happy about. If my wife is happy..then I'm happy =)
Thanks Mommy Spa!

I love the massages I have received from Lindsay. Her studio is lovely and inviting and feels like an oasis. I have chronic shoulder pain and when I come and get a massage from Lindsay, they are much better. She understands how important muscle balance is to joint stability and her technique works. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Best Massage Therapist Ever!!!! We love Lindsay at the Mommy Spa, she's the best massage therapist ever!!! Lindsay is a highly professional massage therapist well versed with all the intricate nuances of the body as well as various massage techniques such as deep tissue, Swedish, and pregnancy. She offers massage services to both men and women alike, which is great for my husband and I. We highly recommend Lindsay at The Mommy Spa for all your massage needs, AAA+++ all the way.
Thanks so much Lindsay, our bodies never felt better.

Every Mommy NEEDS a little pampering. Lindsay is AWESOME. As a mother of 3, I know the importance of taking time for self. If you are a new mommy-to-be or a seasoned pro you deserve a massage. When you are pregnant you don't realize the places that you can feel aches and pains. Lindsay is knowledgeable, caring and a genuine gem.

Have you ever experienced a ‘hot stone’ massage? If not – do yourself a favor and experience one from Lindsay. She is expert in this work! I have several areas that can be problems for me: shoulder and rotator cuff, low back and sacrum issues, and knee pain (I’m going for not having knee replacement.) She knows how to deal with each issue, therapeutically and intuitively.
And those ‘hot’ stones – “Oh what a Blessing they are everyplace she uses them – which I’ve noticed is more than my back. “She is a genius in her work!
Lindsay also specializes in pregnancy massage (hence the name The Mommy Spa) as well as working with people who have cancer.
It is no accident she won the Woman-Owned Business of the Year Women’s Initiative award this year.

Wow! The Mommy Spa! I wasn’t even aware of how uncomfortable I was, until my legs and feet were physically “consoled” by their exec. therapist. I was more than halfway thru my twin pregnancy; my small frame was carrying quite a load. Lindsay was visiting us in our new home in Michigan. She recognized immediately where I was hurting. She offered to “do what she does” and give me a mini massage before she left.
Understand, I was a skeptic, but did not want to turn down the opportunity. The relief was almost immediate. The advice she offered, after a line of clinical questioning, improved my ability to function through the duration of my pregnancy! I swear, when I talk about it, I can hear my legs and feet thanking her.

I became Lindsay's client when I was about 3 months pregnant with my first pregnancy. She helped with the aches and pains of pregnancy immensely. My pregnancy was very smooth and easy - a lot that credit goes to Lindsay.
Lindsay conducted a few massage sessions with my husband observing and showed him some techniques to help relieve soreness in my lower back, as well as techniques to keep me from retaining water in my legs. Lindsay saw me all the way through my pregnancy and treated me postpartum as well.
Lindsay's pre-natal and post-partum massage therapy has been invaluable to me. I would definitely seek her services again when and if I become pregnant again.

When scheduling the infant massage class for my Las Madres mothers group, Lindsay was easy to work with and flexible on time and location. She was well prepared with illustrated handouts & sample massage oils for us to use on our babies. The diagram of pressure points was of particular interest to me. We went over the benefits of touch to our babies and how we can build their self-esteem with positive affirmations. Different massage techniques were demonstrated and I learned what worked best for me. The class was great. I look forward to using what I learned to grow a nurturing bond with my son.

On Tuesday, my friend Julie and I had a wonderful opportunity to attend an infant massage class in Los Gatos. The class was taught by Lindsay MacInnis of The Mommy Spa.
Lindsay provided each mom with a bag that included a bottle of Lavender & Chamomile Baby Rub™, a handout with pictures of massage instructions and a discount coupon for a massage at The Mommy Spa.
If anybody has questions or needs a bottle of Baby Rub™, Lindsay can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
