About equilibrio

Equilibrio was founded in 2004 with a focus on women’s health issues. We soon sought out advanced training and expertise in working with pregnant women and new moms. We realized that women need and deserve that expertise and skill layered on top of really good massage. While many massage therapists can ‘do’ prenatal massage, very few actually ‘specialize’ in it.

We have worked with hundreds of mamas-to-be in San Diego and they have taught us so much about how to make them infinitely comfortable on the massage table with our cloud of pillows. And they have helped us learn how to treat all the crazy discomforts that come with pregnancy from low back pain to sciatica to pregnancy carpal tunnel syndrome. We extend infinite “thank you”s to all these mamas.

You can find us here in San Diego — we continue to hang our sign at our longtime base in the Banker’s Hill/Hillcrest area.

“Equilibrio Pregnancy Massage [is] like an oasis for the pregnant woman. My therapist had a pillow to support every inch of my body…they really took the time to think about a pregnant body and how to maximize my comfort and therefore my enjoyment of my massage experience.” ~Suzanne M., Jack’s mom
