Aside from wellness and rehabilitation, Tanika has a strong passion in aiding with the prevention and maintenance of pregnancy pains and discomforts. Throughout Tanika’s educational experience and practice, she has taken the time to learn how to best ease prenatal and postnatal symptoms from stress to joint pain. Additionally, Tanika has also taken the time to learn and teach the benefits and practice of infant massage. Infant massage has many benefits such as, regulating digestion, growth and fine tuning gross and fine motor skills. Tanika strongly encourages parents to take part in the treatment to recreate the experience at home.

Pre/post natal Massage- Is a great way to incorporate wellness and pain relief into your entire prenatal and postnatal experience. The benefits of pregnancy massage include relaxation, stress reduction, decreased pain and maintained flexibility. Prenatal massage can start as early as 12 weeks and continue well into your postnatal journey.

Infant Massage- The pregnancy and labour experience is equally as taxing on the baby as it is the parents. Which is why infant massage is an awesome way to welcome your little one into the world. Infant massage has many benefits such as infant wellness, fine tuning gross and fine motor skills and decreasing gas, colic and constipation symptoms.
