“Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques, one of which is called Swedish Massage, which aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. Swedish Massage is the recommended prenatal massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy. “

Nova Dawn Wellness
- Therapeutic massage for women and their families -


Nova’s mission is to provide an increased sense of nurturing, balance and healing to women and their families through all stages of life by providing results oriented therapeutic massage services and empowerment through education.

Whether clients seek stress reduction, pain relief, or increased range of motion, Nova’s goal is for everyone to experience noticeable improvements by the end of their massage session.  Additionally, each client will leave with information and skills, which will increase their ability to achieve their health and wellness goals outside of the massage room.

Nova has been practicing massage since 2006 after graduating from The Oregon School of Massage in Portland, OR, where she specialized in prenatal/postpartum and integrative therapeutic massage.  She trained as a birth doula at Birthingway College of Midwifery in 2005 and has been honored to attend a few wonderful births since then.  She also worked as a nanny for over 10 years and has a BA in music from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA.

Nova is a single mama to a wonderful toddling girl named Anjeni, who was born in July of 2012.  She also hosts Best Feeders: a Mother-to-Mother Support Group for Low Milk Supply every second Monday of the month from 5:30-6:30 pm at Sante Mama.
