New parent? Soon to be parent? Experienced parent? Busy parent? If you fit into any of these categories, come see me! My name is Cara B. Drescher, and I am the owner of Cara B. Design & Wellness, your one stop shop for prenatal, postnatal, and everyday wellness. I offer massage therapy, skin care, makeup application, wellness education, and retail items for the new, soon to be and current moms and dads!
As a massage therapist, I focus heavily on pre & postnatal massage therapy. During this extremely complex time, bodies/minds/lives (and many other things!) change dramatically every single day. Massage therapy during pregnancy, after pregnancy and beyond can help reduce stress by leaps and bounds. Whether you are a new mom biologically, adoptively, or by any other means, your life changes in ways you can’t always prepare for, and with these changes come every day stress, both physical and emotional. Massage is a fabulous way to not just relax, but to take care of your body, mind and spirit. Massage therapy is not a luxury, it really is a necessity! As a nationally certified massage therapy educator, I offer continuing education to licensed, certified, and registered massage therapists in various areas including prenatal massage, so that they can safely and effectively provide massage therapy to pregnant clients. I also offer prenatal partner massage to the general public, which teaches partners how to massage their pregnant counterpart safely and help reduce stress. I offer this workshop in 2 formats: a one and half hour workshop in a group setting and a one on one 2 hour session with your partner.
With my background in esthetics (skin care) and makeup artistry, I offer customized facials before, during and after pregnancy to best target problem areas. Similarly to muscular and joint issues during pregnancy, skin changes frequently during the childbearing year. The changes that take place are often unexpected and can be difficult to treat and manage. In my practice, not only do I customize each facial to each client’s specific needs, but I also customize each prenatal facial to be sure that it is safe for both the mother and baby. My background in makeup includes education in cosmetology school as well as workshops and classes from some of the best makeup educators in the country. While I focus my makeup practice on bridal makeup, I offer makeup application for various events and photo shoots as requested by the client. My makeup portfolio can also be viewed on my website. Retail items include skincare and makeup products, which are readily available for purchase.
As a textile artist and designer, I design and create a variety of diaper bags, handbags, wallets, and other accessories that are entirely unique and customizable to each client’s needs and desires. While I maintain an online etsy shop, I also offer my retail items at my shop in Conshohocken. I’ve focused my textile design primarily on women’s needs, and have created a unique and very functional wallet design that simplifies and organizes everyday items that women carry in their wallets. From this design, I’ve created various diaper bags for parents that include the same simplification and organization that is so crucial, especially when toting around little ones. Each diaper bag I create is completely customized to each person’s needs depending on what you require. I’ve created bags for mom’s with one child, and I’ve created bags for mom’s with multiple children of various ages. Whatever your needs are, I will design a bag that suits you best! I am here to help you!
