Meet Princina Benson of Pea in A Pod Pregnancy Massage

Today we’d like to introduce you to Princina Benson.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Princina. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
While I was attending school, I thought it would be amazing to have a prenatal spa for pregnant women to go to and relax. A place where they can go have a real prenatal massage, a place where the therapist is not afraid to touch or massage the mother to be.

A place where the mom can get her hair done and her nails done without worrying about the chemicals or fumes. While I have not opened this spa just yet I have taken the additional classes to specialize in the skills necessary to assist these mamas with the everyday aches and pains associated with pregnancy and Pea in a Pod Pregnancy Massage was born. Having 4 children myself, I understand the needs of an expecting mother, while understanding that each pregnancy is different and unique. I love working with these women and offering some relief from hip discomfort, low backpain, tension, and insomnia. I believe Massage during pregnancy is a necessity not a luxury. If you take a moment and think about what a women’s body goes through during pregnancy and delivery, you can see why it is such a necessity.

Every mom deserves to have a massage during and after pregnancy if for nothing else but to take a moment to nurture herself and receive some validation support and relaxation.

Has it been a smooth road?
The road has not been easy but it has taught me quite a bit. When I initially started I was working for someone else as well as myself and living down in San Diego with my children. I had to relocate back to Los Angeles and stay with my family and completely start over. I also think that doubt, and fear have been huge obstacles on this journey. Now I have a thriving growing business that I love. I have not completely made it to where I want to be, but I am certainly on my way.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Pea in A Pod Pregnancy Massage – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
While the name of my company is Pea in a Pod Pregnancy Massage, I provide therapeutic massage for all. I specialize in Prenatal Massage, Frozen shoulder, sciatica, low back pain…and overall relaxation. As a company and a person, I love that I am able to help people find some relief from the aches and pains that are causing them discomfort. I love that I started from nothing and have worked my way up and I am still climbing. I think the thing that sets me apart from others is listening to my client, and letting them know they have been heard through my work. I listen to my client’s needs and design a session specifically for what they have come in for.
