The lady behind it all: Lena Gonzalez
Lena is a Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist, Certified Fertility Massage Specialist, and trained by ProDoula. She is a mother of two, wife to one and a veteran of the US Navy.
“During my last pregnancy I received regular prenatal massage, which I believe helped during my non-medicated labor. Afterwards, I found evidence that regular massage can help shorten the length of labor, and lessen the dependence on pain medicine. Naturally, I decided to pursue a career dedicated to prenatal massage.”
Lena started Mommyssage in 2012 after the birth of her son and during her stint at the Florida College of Natural Health massage therapy school. It was in massage school where she experienced and learned massage through the body of a pregnant woman. From accupressure, to cranial sacral, to reflexology and more, it helped her to understand how massage therapy, and it’s various modalities, can benefit an expecting mom.
From her experiences she felt the calling to pursue a career catering specifically to pregnancy. For moms that are trying to get pregnant, to moms that are pregnant, to moms that need help and support in the labor room. She aims to provide her services judgement and worry free.
