Maia has a passion for supporting and empowering women and families throughout all the phases of their lives, in particular the perinatal period. She is a graduate of the Muscular Therapy Institute in Watertown, Massachusetts, and has been a practitioner of Muscular Therapy and Prenatal and Perinatal Massage Therapy since 2006.
Her work combines aspects of Swedish Massage, Deep-Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release and energy work to create a treatment tailored to the needs of each individual client. She received specialized training in Prenatal and Perinatal Massage Therapy with Carole Osborne-Sheets. Her work focuses on supporting the natural ability of the human body to heal and navigate the complex and magical journey of parenthood. In addition to her massage work, Maia is a Certified Birth Doula. Her training is through Birth Arts International, and she has had the pleasure of attending births with private clients, as well as on a volunteer basis at Heywood Hospital in Gardner, Massachusetts.
Additionally, she is a certified Lactation Counselor, and enjoys helping families and babies as they embark upon their breastfeeding journeys. Maia believes that no parent should have to feel isolated or lost during the perinatal period, and her goal is to help create a place where families can find support and community no matter their personal circumstances.
