Pregnancy is a tumultuous period for a woman's mind and body. Any woman who has been pregnant can sympathize with the mental and physical fatigue associated with being pregnant. Not only does a woman experience physical changes, she also experiences mental changes as well.

Massage therapy has been known to calm many of the aches and pains associated with pregnancy such as sciatica, swelling, back and neck pain, and stomach upset. Prenatal massage has also been shown to improve physical discomforts by encouraging circulation and by stretching the muscles and joints to their full range of motion to improve skin elasticity and body tone. Studies show that pregnant women who receive regular prenatal massages are more at ease - furthermore relaxing the fetus inside their womb.


Actor / Musician / Dancer Performance Enhancement Coach                 Dean Michael Cera has twenty-four years of experience as a cinematographer and photographer having filmed extensively in Italy, France, England, Canada and the United States of America.

"Dean's film directing style is profoundly influenced by his former professional experience as a fine artist whose works figure prominently in many corporate and private collections. His paintings of monumental human figures whose anatomies are reminiscent of the old world yet also transformed by the artists vision of a new era, are transposed to the film media creating a complex synergy of artistic expression. Original artwork, fine art photography and motion picture with original music weave and blend to create a dreamlike multi-verse."

Sacro Occitipal Technique                                                                     Its broad scope includes not only the back and neck but also the internal organs, extremities and cranial structures. The primary focus is upon structural stability and integrity as well as the function of the neurological system. The human structure is based upon pelvis and the cranium. The head, spine, neck, shoulders, sit upon the pelvis and are subject to the stresses and strains of gravity. These structures, as well as the rest of the body, are functionally maintained and controlled by the brain through the nervous system. Brain function is dependent upon optimal motion through alignment of the cranial dura in relation to cranial bones. This mobilization of the pelvis is the locomotion system: the legs and feet. All structures of the body are essential to the integrity of the whole. Organ function depends upon proper nerve supply from the spine, in turn the spine is free to except nerve reflexes from the organs that manifests healthy spinal mechanics; balance and optimal function of the cranium, pelvis, each spinal segment, organs and all of the extremities are essential to optimal health.


A natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears and their referral areas which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, crèmes or lotions, the feet being the primary area of application, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.
