Susie Holdaway, LMT, RN

Susie loves bodywork and finds it extremely rewarding to help women feel better, physically and emotionally, as a result of her treatments.  25+ years ago in her midwifery training with the Utah School of Midwifery, she first learned and began practicing massage therapy.  For the past 9+ years she has operated her business Massage Therapy for Women. With her RN obstetric experience (hospital, clinic, and birth center), Susie has years of knowledge and understanding for pregnancy, the birth process and postpartum recovery.  She has successfully completed two 32 hour certificate programs for massage in pregnancy and the postpartum period.  Susie has also been blessed with a gifted touch.  She is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Idaho.

Susie has been studying essential oils for a few years and has successfully completed the course for the DoTerra Aroma Touch Technique.  She now offers this essential oil treatment to non pregnant women.  The technique was developed by David K. Hill,  DC, using 21 different oils that address stress management, immune support, inflammation and autonomic imbalance in the body.  It is a holistic approach and produces overall systemic benefits that continue days past the initial application.  Women absolutely love the touch, the scents and the relaxation of this treatment.

Whether you are pregnant or not, you will profit immensely by receiving a massage or essential oil treatment from Susie.  She looks forward to serving you.

My name is Chris and I am a Registered Nurse and have been working in the field of women’s health for over 30 years. I have extensive experience with labor and delivery, postpartum, recovery, and newborn care. I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (I help moms and babies with breastfeeding). I am a Licensed Massage Therapist trained at the American Institute of Clinical Massage in Post Falls.  I’ve practiced Jin Shin Do, a form of oriental medicine, since 1981.

I am married to my very loving husband for 20 years and have two great sons. I feel that God has truly blessed me both with my loving family, and throughout my career.  I have been given the opportunity of working with moms, dads, and babies, and feel very fortunate to be able to serve you now as a massage therapist, at Dayspring.

Dr. Rick Thomas, Life Chiropractic

Rick has been a life saver to many laboring women.  We suggest chiropractic treatment throughout pregnancy to keep the spine aligned and the uterus  from constraint, allowing baby to descend properly into the pelvis.

Occasionally Dr. Rick is called upon when labor stalls. For Shelia, labor stalled at 8cm for hours. After trying everything to keep labor going, we called in Dr. Rick .  After a quick adjustment the baby delivered within 10 minutes.  Dr. Rick hadn’t even left the building.
