“Casey’s touch was just what I needed, especially given all the discomfort that comes with being 39 weeks pregnant! It was a real treat – I left feeling so blissful, rejuvenated and well taken care of. Because I was already full-term, Casey employed techniques to encourage my baby to start his descent. And 2 days later, he arrived! I would highly recommend investing in Casey’s care – during pregnancy and beyond!”
