About Metamorphosis Massage Therapy & Doula Care
Metamorphosis Massage Therapy & Doula Care offers Therapeutic Massage for muscle health, pain & stress management and Pregnancy Massage provided by professionally Certified Massage Practitioners. During stressful times from pain or injury, the body's muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues called myofascia develop changes that massage can positively effect. These structural changes are intense during pregnancy and can cause increased need for massage !
Our experienced practitioners will tailor your care to your specific needs. For the healthiest muscular stress management it is advised to receive timely therapeutic massage to release tension, encourage circulation, purge toxins, reduce mild edema and help develop a proper metabolism in the previously constricted tissue structures.

Shelley is incredibly knowledgeable, caring, personable and professional. She knew exactly what I needed after a brief consultation and the massage was excellent. She even gave me recommendations for how to sleep different and what supplements to use for my poor lower back and headaches. The best part though, she put me to sleep toward the end of the hour long massage. Talk about deep stress relief. Thank you Shelley.
