About Urban Integrative Bodywork
Urban Integrative Bodywork (formerly Noe Valley Integrative Bodywork) strives to aid community well-being, helping our clients feel at peace in their bodies through integrative therapeutic bodywork techniques, using the highest quality organic products.
We specialize in prenatal and postpartum bodywork services, supporting clients in all stages of their journey through parenthood.
The massage therapist will incorporate a range of massage modalities, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, Structural Integration, Shiatsu, Acupressure, and Thai Massage. The massage may target specific areas for therapeutic results, or encompass whole-body wellness. Performed with light organic oil or lotion.
Prenatal massage is performed primarily in a side-lying position, bolstered by pillows and props, utilizing Swedish massage techniques. Massage can improve overall prenatal health for many pregnant women, helping in hormone regulation, reduction of swelling, and improvement of nerve pain.
Had a baby in the last 90 days? This massage is ideal during the first 3-6 weeks postpartum for a vaginal birth or 4-8 weeks for a cesarean birth (please email us if you'd like to come in earlier). Postpartum massage aims to help in the healing process, help you rest and stimulate of the parasympathetic nervous system, alleviate new mama pain and tension, and gently support the body’s transitions during this crucial recovery time in a woman’s health. Abdominal massage may also be incorporated to help gently realign organs and support digestion.
We’re thrilled to now offer healing CBD massage. Our own custom Arnica and St. John’s Wort infused massage oil, along with the healing power of Cannabinoids (CBD - the non-psychoactive compounds of the cannabis plant), and essential oils of lavender, peppermint, and frankincense, help relieve pain, inflammation and tension. You’ll also be treated to our special herbal heat packs to further melt muscle tension. This is a wonderful treatment for those dealing with injury, chronic pain or inflammation, arthritis, anxiety, or simply want to drop into deep relaxation and healing.

"I was amazed by Lauren's vast knowledge of the pains of pregnant women, and the attention to detail she has while she works. She was even able to give me useful tips for my leg cramps and my c-section scar tissue. I don't think there is anyone else in the city as qualified as Lauren for maternity care"
