Meet Your Instructor: Sheryl Watson

“I love prenatal massage because it is such a precious time of change in an individual’s life.  The transitions can be both exciting and scary at the same time and it’s an honour to nurture someone who is going through this process.

The three trimesters of pregnancy have there own unique changes physically and emotionally, and some pregnancies are seamless while others present numerous challenges, but all benefit from the nurturing support of massage.”
