Emily S
Exactly what I needed! I had a baby four weeks ago and have been experiencing a lot of upper body tension over the past week. Jessica listened to me and was able to target the sources of tension and I feel 100% better! I am looking forward to going back. Best massage I've ever had!
Ashley P
This was my 3rd visit over last couple years and it was so relaxing and refreshing! Erika was wonderful as are all the ladies I've met here.
April I
I wish I had start coming here sooner!
Joy L
Awesome! Jessica was great and she listened to my problem areas to focus on those for massage. This was my first prenatal massage and I felt great afterwards for next couple days!
Holly H
We are expecting... Great massage. Exactly what I need. I reached a state of relaxation that I haven't been to in a while. Twas perfect!
Robyn L
Great Prenatal Massage I really enjoyed my massage at Nola Maternal Instincts. I was so relaxed but all my problems areas felt much after as well. Some places are afraid to give a pregnant woman a good massage, but this place was amazing. Would definitely recommend to any pregnant mommies!
Fertility Massage Review of Jessica Heno I had a fertility massage with Jessica on 11/4/16. She was very welcoming and knowledgeable. Good job, Jessica.
Tonya K
Amazing!!!! Highly recommended for all expecting mothers or really any mothers!!!!
Julie B
Best massage ever...perfect for pregnancy and beyond I am 38 weeks pregnant and did the 75 minute prenatal massage. Jessica made sure that she focused on helping me relax, kept me in safe pregnancy positions using the right amount of pressure around specific areas, and even providing the right amount of support via pillows and props. NOLA Maternal Instincts is very knowledgeable about a pregnant woman's body and needs and made sure I was comfortable, relaxed, and felt at ease throughout the entire massage. I can't wait to get a massage after the baby is born!
Jennifer W
Amazing as always Love my time at NOLA maternal instincts. Amazing as always.
Camille C
Happy & Relaxed Mama! I wanted to get a massage, but am currently breastfeeding and don't like to lie on my stomach. I was concerned that most spas wouldn't be able to accommodate me, but I asked around and some ladies recommended Jessica at NOLA Maternal Instincts. I called to talk with her before I scheduled my appointment and she walked me through how the massage would be done without lying on my stomach. I booked my appointment online (awesome!) and had my massage this morning. When I arrived, Jessica was so kind and welcoming. She asked about problem areas and areas I wanted to focus on. The massage was AMAZING and I'm one happy (and relaxed) mama!
courtney g
Amazing One of the most relaxing and amazing massages I have had. I have a really bad back and today I feel great!
Vanessa Batiste-Leal
The best!! Hands down, the best massages. Rather you are pregnant or just need to reboot, every woman should treat themselves to Maternal Instincts. It's always on my list to Santa, birthdays, anniversaries, and really just because.
Jamie T
Great Massage! Very knowledgeable, professional, and great massage! I am very picky about massage therapists and was very impressed. I will be coming back regularly.
Katie B
Excellent! My husband bought me a package of 3 prenatal massages her, and I had Erica for all of them. While each one was great and made me so relaxed, the most recent one I had at 36.5 weeks was the best by far! My ankles/feet were swollen and I felt like I couldn't get comfortable, even enough for a nap, but Erica's massage totally relaxed me and I actually slept during part of it. The soothing music helps, and I think baby liked it too. I highly recommend at least 3 of these massages through your pregnancy!
Whitney C
Highly Recommended I've been to maternal instincts for a fertility massage when trying to conceive and I've recently been back for a prenatal massage. I thoroughly enjoyed both massages. Jessica is very professional and courteous and she actually remembered me! I recommend Maternal Instincts to all the pregnant mommas and anyone TTC! They are wonderful
Morgan M
Quiet and Soothing I haven't been in the habit of spending extra money on doing things for myself with the baby on the way, but I am so glad I got to experience this massage. It gave me pure relaxation and happiness; easily the best massage I've ever had. The pressure was just what I requested and the environment was quiet and soothing. That they're certified in prenatal massage really shows, my masseuse had a deft understanding of what would and wouldn't be comfortable for my body. I felt like I was in great hands and highly recommend NOLA Maternal Instincts to expectant mothers.
Lindsay G
Amazing! I went in for the 90 minute prenatal massage. I was having a lot of lower back pain and Jessica made it all melt away. I highly recommend her and will be going back.
Antrielle W
Loved everything! From the time I walked in, everything was great. Erika greeted me by name and she was a very good masseuse. This was my first time here & definetly not the last!
Sarah W
Pre natal massage Jessica has done a great job and I always feel so much better after I am there. I am in my third trimester and it helps so much with the aches and pains!
Jennifer S
Just what I needed! At 36 weeks pregnant, I was skeptical to pay for another massage. I had one at a ritzy hotel in Biloxi and it was awful. It was basically a fancy back scratch. I went to nola maternal instincts with low expectations and was absolutely blown away! Erika was amazing! The entire massage was such a relaxing experience. She was able to relieve my knots that were causing me to be uncomfortable. I have already booked an appointment to return next week. Highly highly recommended!
Cheryl F
Jessica Jessica was absolutely amazing! She did the perfect amount of pressure and worked on everything that I had problems with. I was able to take a nap after, and I slept so good. I was so relaxed and was able to feel relief. I am 34 weeks along, and this was my first prenatal massage. Honestly, it was one of the best massages I have ever had! Definitely going back! Thank you Jessica for all you do, and for your gifted hands.
Mone G
Amazing Staff is so professional and relaxing! Id recommend them to anyone!
Amanda S
Great Massage! I loved my massage with Jessica. She was great- when I left that was the best I've ever felt since finding out I was pregnant. Sorry I waited so long to book an appointment- will definitely try and get another one before the baby arrives.
Candice
Fertility massage Very relaxing. Was given lots of great information and encouragement, which is so helpful as we go through the process of conceiving.
Monica W
Highly suggest Jessica did an amazing job. BEST massage I have received! Thanks for making me feel so relaxed.
Amanda L
Wonderful as always! I've visited Jessica regularly during both my pregnancies and she is the main reason I give other for still feeling so great at 37 weeks!
Ashley M
Amazing Massages!! I was fortunate to receive a package of 3 massages as a birthday gift from my Mom. Best gift for this pregnant chick! I have seen both Erika & Jessica and they are each fantastic! I am so glad my mom found this place and I have already recommended to friends! I can't wait for my next appointment!
Alexandria S
Amazing and relaxing experience Erika is amazing!!!! She knows exactly what to do to get all the kinks out, and I've left pain free after multiple sessions with her. I think she's so good at what she does because she has been pregnant and in pain and knows that massage is not just for pampering but for aiding in pain management as well. She also genuinely loves what she does, which definitely adds to the experience. Thanks Erika and Nola Maternal Instincts! Y'all are life savers and I will be back for sure!
Virginia S
Excellent Jessica came highly recommended to me by a coworker. She was fabulous! This is the best I have felt since I have been pregnant. :)
Tonya B
Massage with Jessica I really enjoyed my session with Jessica a couple of weeks ago for my 90 minute massage. My massage was wonderful and truly helped me feel refreshed and renewed. I have another appt this week and plan to see her every few weeks throughout my pregnancy. I feel the better I take care of myself thru my pregnancy, the longer I can continue to do all my normal everyday activities from work to working out. I am also a licensed massage therapist and feel the only way I will be able to work thru most of my pregnancy will be having routine bodywork by a licensed therapist certified in prenatal massage.
Kiante M
AWESOME!!!!!!! I went in for a day of relaxation, and I left feeling like a new woman. I've had massages before (none prenatal) however i love my pressure hard, this was the first time I did not wake up sore the next day. Erica was my masseuse, and although she has her little baby bump she makes sure that your experience is strictly about you and your little bundle. They were so eager to find out about your pregnancy and made you feel so excited to have something so sweet growing inside of you. I will definitely be back throughout the rest of my pregnancy to remain stress free and body aches free!!!
Katie M
Erika was amazing! At 34 weeks pregnant, Erika made me feel so comfortable and relaxed! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Nicole S
Exceptional Very professional. Thorough, Clean and relaxing atmosphere. Will definitely be back
Simply the Best For over five years this experience has been great!
Sharon B
Prenatal massags Amazing massage and service here! Highly recommend to all pregnant women!!!
Amanda L
Amazing as always I've never felt more comfortable than I have on the massage table at NOLA Maternal Instincts! Jessica pays attention to every detail and as always does an amazing job. I will be returning as soon as possible!
Ria P
excellent experience Since I moved to NOLA I was looking for a good masseuse. Finally my search was over when I met Jessica. She is not only a great massage therapist but also very pleasant human being. She has great hands. I went for my post partum massage and it felt so good. I am definitely going there in regular basis.
Awesome Erika was very good and it was very peaceful
BC
Awesome! Great experience in this quant place. Jessica was great and very helpful and informative. Very relaxing. Thanks again.
Elysia G
Great experience! 40 weeks pregnant and patiently waiting for the arrival of my little one, this was exactly what I needed. Highly recommend!
Amanda L
Made my week Back during my second pregnancy, Maternal Instincts was just as I had previously experienced - professional, comfortable, and the best massage I've ever had (prenatal or not). I'll be back!
Laura G
37 Weeks I am 37 weeks along and just got a massage to help with aching, numbness and swelling due to pregnancy. The massage helped with my problems and I received helpful lifestyle advice. Thanks so much!
Sharon B
Prenatal massage My massage was amazing! I felt very comfortable and Erika was so sweet. I will definitely be back and will recommend to other moms!
Jordan L
Excellent as always! This was my third massage with Jessica and she is wonderful-such a professional, so conscientious and truly concerned about her clients having a relaxing experience which I always do!
Jessica S
Relaxing hour and 15 minutes Erika did a great job, I haven't been that relaxed since before I got pregnant! Thanks so much!
Lauren L
Magic I injured my back and really had no other option. Everyone said I couldn't get massage in the first trimester, which I didn't believe. Now I'm pain free and can go back to work :)
Heather
Another Awesome Massage! I had a massage from Erika for the first time, and she was awesome! Would definitely recommend her!
Dawn
Very Satisfied Yesterday was my second time visiting NOLA maternal instincts. When I walked in,Jessica immediately greeted me and asked how my pregnancy was going. She also asked what area I'd like to focus in on. She remembered what kind of pressure that was comfortable for me. I was impressed with how much she remembered about me as an individual. The massage itself was so relaxing that I didn't have a care in the world,there were no distractions whatsoever. Yes this place exists off of a busy main Boulevard, but the experience inside drowns it out completely. I highly recommend this place and hope that I can come here postpartum as well. I have had other massages at a few other places in the area,but this place and this masseuse are the absolute best.I cannot say enough about this place.this place had been a saving grace for me. Bravo Jessica, job well done!

Welcoming Our New Massage Therapist: Erika Review of Erika L

Welcome Erika!

As many of my regular clients know, I have been getting increasingly busier and my schedule has been getting full pretty quickly!  I have often said that I either need to clone myself so I can be in two places at once, OR find another therapist to help me whose massage is extremely similar to mine.  After much searching, I have finally found her!!  Erika is an incredible therapist and has a touch that is warm and therapeutic. 

She received her very first massage EVER at NOLA Maternal Instincts when she was pregnant, and after she gave birth she decided that she wanted to be able to help women the same way, so she went to massage school!!  Erika is now a Licensed Massage Therapist and has successfully completed her Prenatal Massage Training. 

 I absolutely love her work and I feel so great after each massage that I've received from her.  I urge you to try her out, you will not be disappointed!!

Thanks so much,

Jessica Bonnet

Emilie R
Best massage ever! Anyone looking for pre maternity,maternity,or post maternity massage, this is the place to go. Before getting my massage here, I hadn't slept through the night for two weeks, and after my massage, I made it all the way through the night! The environment was relaxing and clean. It was the perfect amount of pressure, and it really allowed for you to relax because Jessica knew exactly what she was doing. I would recommend this place to all my female friends.
Lindsay G
Amazing! Thank you so much! It was amazing again!
Heather
Such a great massage! One hour of pure relaxation. I feel a million times better!
Samantha K
highly recommended!! I'm 31 weeks pregnant and this massage was EXACTLY what I needed!! Jessica was amazing!! I will def be booking a couple more appts before I deliver!
Ashley B
AMAZING Getting through the last month of pregnancy is really tough but Jessica makes it manageable! She is the best and absolutely essential for all pregnant momma's. Love her!
Melissa M
thanks! Always amazing thank you!!
Amy
great massage I have had many massages from different spas all over the state. I have never had one as good as I did at Nola Maternal Instincts. Jessica was so sweet, the atmosphere was calming and her attention to detail on every body part was amazing! I will definitely be returning.
Lindsay G
Amazing! Thank you so much! It was amazing again!
Amanda H
Always wonderful Had a fantastic Mother's Day massage with Jessica. The massage was great and I felt wonderful. Jessica gives great customer service and I always feel so welcome and relaxed whenever I go in for an appointment. Can't wait until next time!
Kirsten W
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Best pre-natal massage I've ever received and this is my 5th baby! I will be back for the rest of the pregnancy and post baby for sure!
Cherie H
excellent massage! Great massage, super nice people, definitely plan to go back often! I would recommend to all of my friends. Very relaxing.
Dayna L
Best massage!! I thoroughly enjoyed my prenatal massage, it was one of the best massages I have ever experienced. It was very relaxing and peaceful. Jessica does a great job at making you feel comfortable and does an excellent job overall! I would highly recommend Nola maternal instincts to anyone. I already booked my next massage!!
Amber D.
Wonderful prenatal massage! I had the best massage with Jessica at NOLA Maternity Instincts! I am 25 weeks pregnant and it was just what I needed. I first went to Jessica about 2 years ago when I was pregnant with my first son and am so glad that she is still there! The massage center is very easy to get to -- off of North Causeway -- and I cannot describe how comfy the room is where she gives the massages! The bed, pillows and overall ambiance are so relaxing! And her massage techniques are perfect for a prenatal visit. I definitely recommend this place - even if you are not pregnant! It is a nice, quiet, relaxing break from the day!
Amanda L
Great experience! This was my first prenatal massage (I was 16 weeks), but was one of the best overall massages I've ever received in my life! The table, lighting, aromatherapy, and of course Jessica's handiwork were all amazing. I can't wait to go back!
Meredith
Great experience It was a great experience. Jessica was awesome and really individualized my experience !
Tessa
Excellent massage! I have been getting massages for years. Jessica is one of the best. She provides a massage that is both therapeutic and relaxing. I highly recommend you try her.
Jennifer C
My massage I had an amazing experience and will definitely be back soon! If I had to be very critical the only thing I would say needed to change is at times during my massage I could hear traffic so maybe louder music or a sound machine to block out outside noise?
Ashley A
Just what mom needed! Every experience I have at NOLA Maternal Instincts is top notch. The environment is relaxing, welcoming and not intimidating. The massage is excellent, start to finish, and I believe the staff truly cares about your well-being. I will be back!
Katie S
Great Experience I had my first prenatal massage at Maternal Instincts and it was amazing! It was the best I've felt my entire 32 weeks of being pregnant. The atmosphere was very calming and relaxing and I left feel great. I would definitely recommend Maternal Instincts and will be going back shortly!
Lyndsey D
Awesome Experience Jessica did a great job at making me feel comfortable for my very first massage ever!
Wendy J
Y'all are AMAZING!!!!! As a mommy of 4, to say I needed this is an understatement!! Lol As always, I was so relaxed and enjoyed my massage sooooo very much!!!! I will make an effort to do this for myself once a month, mommies need some spoiling and pampering every now and then!!! Best massage EVER!!!!!!!
Danielle B
Amazing Jessica does an amazing job! I am always so relaxed!
Te'Ma G
I can't wait to go back next month. I have never been this relaxed. I never knew that having your ears massaged would help to relax your body. The room was so relaxing and her oils and lotions don'tmake you feel greasy after. I will be going back and recommending Maternal Instincs to all of my friends.
Nancy B
Massage Awesome massage as always
Courtney
best massage ever! Absolutely an amazing experience. So calming so relaxing and oh so peaceful! I am 36 weeks pregnant on Saturday and I wish I didn't wait so long to go...the massage was so wonderful and very much needed! Michelle did a wonderful job of focusing on the areas I needed most..I can not wait to go back and get my next one...very much so looking forward to it!!!! Any pregnant woman should go get a massage from here! !!
Zaina S
AMAZING! I was so fortunate to experience one of the best massages I've ever gotten. Michelle was incredible, and the ambiance complemented the amazing massage. Looking to go again before baby arrives :).
Miriam W
Relaxing Review of Jessica Heno Very soothing and relaxing massage
Shala B
Perfect Wonderful thank you!
Karen L
One of the best massages in New Orleans Jessica's massages are awesome - she listens to where your problem areas are and makes sure she focuses on those but does not sacrifice full body relaxation. It is truly one of the best massages in NO - even when compared to high-end over-priced places!!
Jennifer W
Great massage Great massage again yesterday. I love the 60 or 75 minutes that I'm at total peace and getting relief from aches at the same time.
Julia D
Massage--short?/sore I really enjoyed my first maternal massage-- it was long over due. Although the beginning was heavenly, the end might have been rushed. Admittedly I got caught to traffic and was a bit late for my appt. but I am pretty sure my massage was very much not the full hour. My legs and hips were sore after and I can't tell if that was because they were started but not finished entirely. Hard to say, but had a hard time walking and moving after. And prior the massage i haven't had any mobility issues in my pregnancy like that.
Penny C
Maternal Massage I was very relaxed and had my pains relieved without anxiety or worry. I recommend this place for anyone that needs to relieve the cramps and aches or just to simply unwind for an hour or so.
Jennifer A
Best Massage Ever !!! I am a huge fan of Nola Maternal Instincts. I used them when I was pregrant (my daughter is now 2 1/2) and I can not stop coming. I have been to tons of places and this is the best massage I have ever received! The best!
Amanda H
always fabulous! Went in for pp massage and it was great. Jessica is really wonderful. Can't wait to go back.
Courtney F
Amazing experience! I wish I wouldn't have waited till I was 32 weeks to go for my first prenatal massage. Jessica was amazing. I felt completely relaxed and comfortable. I will definitely be going back!
Anna L
Enjoyed first pre-natal message I really enjoyed my message. The service was exceptional. My message therapist really helped me and gave me great suggestions. I would definitely recommend and I will definitely be going back.
Katy W
Great massage Best prenatal massage! Both therapists are very skilled and caring!
Beth F
Understanding and great listener Jessica was very understanding of my internet mishap with ordering a special. She was very kind to still honor that I purchased the special and gave me the special rate. I greatly appreciated that she understood that there was a technical difficulty. Jessica also listened to want pressure I need and where I need more work on certain areas. I recommend this place for maternal massages and I will be coming back.
Amazing Massage Review of Renata Jones I arrived a little early to my appointment. The therapist was very friendly and took be back right away. She asked what areas she needed to focus on and she did just that. I really enjoyed my experience and would go back again.
Massage Review of Jessica Heno The massage I got was fabulous and very relaxing. Jessica knows exactly what to do and makes sure I was feeling comfortable and my minor pains would go away. I will definitely be going to see Jessica again.
Amanda H
always gets better My massages with Jessica always seem to be better than the last time. She is great! Thanks
Wonderful massage Had a wonderful massage by Jessica; I know she is a prenatal specialist but it was probably one of the best massages I've had period. I can't wait to go back!
Jamie S
Wonderful prenatal massage! I was 36 weeks when I scheduled my massage with Jessica. So sorry I didn't start earlier! That night was the best night of sleep I got in a long time. I strongly recommend Nola Maternal Instincts for mothers to be at any stage in their pregnancy!!!!
Beth D
Wonderfully relaxing Great massage. Relaxing environment. I would recommend this place for maternal massages
Hour massage Simply wonderful! Thorough, perfect pressure, covers all points, depending on length. She has a lovely, gentle manner. Eased my stress immediately. Need to return more often!
Jen V
Best massage! This was the best thing I've done for myself and my baby. A great way to relieve those pregnancy aches and pains especially if your on your feet all day. Looking forward to my next appointment!
Megan A.
Wonderful! This was my first prenatal massage and it was so great! Very relaxing environment overall and the massage felt sooo good! I will be back!
Erika S
Prenatal massage Review of Jessica Heno Excellent!!!
Michelle M
LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Review of Jessica Heno I'm currently pregnant with my second child and immediately thought of Jessica for a massage! I went to Jessica during my first pregnancy and had such a relaxing and soothing massage I didn't hesitate to return! Thanks Jessica!
Lisa K
Awesome! When I wait too long to visit NOLA Maternal Instincts, my body definitely reminds me that it's overdue. After my visit, I feel amazing! I now schedule my next appointment before leaving so its already on my calendar. Thank you Jessica!
Holly L
AMAZING! I went for a massage with Jessica at 36 1/2 weeks and it was amazing! I had two other prenatal massages at other places, and they didn't compare to this one by any means. I felt comfortable with Jessica doing the massage knowing she is qualified and skilled in this particular type of massage and it was definitely the most relaxed hour I've had in many, many months!! Would highly recommend!
Casey N
Amazing! I had a prenatal massage with Jessica at 20weeks pregnant. Definitely one of the best massages I've ever had! She was able to work out a lot of tension and knots in my shoulders and neck that were causing bad headaches. I left feeling great! Thanks!
JESSICA H
Excellent Wonderful
Ivy Youman
A+++ experience! Review of Jessica Heno Yesterday I received my 2nd massage ever, first while pregnant & it was fabulous! Jessica was very kind and made me feel very comfortable. The massage itself was felt great as was the atmosphere, I look forward to going again!!! Thanks!
Judith Ann S
Thankful for strength I have now recieved treatment from both therapists and couldn't be more pleased. I am in my third trimester of pregnancy & was very impressed by both ladies' endurance of strength throughout the full session. They were very professional & I bought a package (a first time for me!) to carry me through the end of my pregnancy because I felt the massage therapy was that helpful.
Rachel F
Always A+ Jessica is so sweet and caring toward her customers. I am always pleased with my massage...Very relaxing and makes this momma feel renewed.
Jennifer H
Highly Recommend NOLA Maternal Instincts has been my go to place for massage for the last two years. I first went for fertility massage while my husband and I were having trouble conceiving and found it to be a very calming and reassuring experience. Once I did become pregnant I returned frequently to help with the aches and pains of my changing body. I always felt very comfortable with Jessica as she is quite knowledgeable about what is safest for you and your baby during pregnancy. Now that my baby is over a year old, I still go to Jessica because she is such a skilled massage therapist. I highly recommend NOLA Maternal Instincts.
Christine G
massages I always feel great after I get massage here. They really know how to make you feel comfortable. They follow exactly what you want and you always feel great when they are finished!
Jennifer W
Amazing! I have been getting massages by Jessica at Nola Maternal Instincts for about 3 years now. She is amazing. She is a genuinely nice person and really listens to what concerns I have each time I go in. I've realized that it's best to just schedule routine massages so it's on my calendar every couple of months!
Awesome I just had my first prenatal massage with Jessica, and it was pretty great! I'm 32 weeks pregnant and have just started feeling achy (lower back especially), so the timing was perfect and Jessica did a wonderful job. I'll definitely be back.
Kacie
best massage EVER Review of Jessica Heno I had massages by Jessica early in my second trimester and again at 37weeks. Both were outstanding. I left feeling rejuvenated and pain free. Unlike all the other massages I've had in the past, Jessica actually focused on problem areas we discussed with the exact pressure I requested. It is obvious how knowledgable she is in prenatal massage. The environment was relaxing and positioning was super comfortable. My only regret is that I wasn't able to come in more often during my pregnancy, but will definitely be a returning customer.
shelly H
Great place I loved my massage at NOLA Maternal Instincts! Wonderful place to go, pregnant or not. Jessica is the sweetest and most friendly massage therapist you could ever meet! I would highly recommend this place to anyone! Thank you Jessica for a wonderful relaxing experience!
Karen L
massage by Jessica Review of Jessica Heno Jessica was awesome! She not only focused on my trouble spots, but also was friendly and didn't make things feel impersonal. Felt great after.
Amanda H
Wonderful! Review of Jessica Heno The massage I had with Jessica was truly wonderful!! Jessica is super sweet and her customer service is top notch. I left feeing great and very pampered. I will be back again before the baby arrives. Thanks!
Marija T
Jessica was incredibly warm and made it a great experience
Mary H
Relaxing Massage Jessica was professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and relaxed. I look forward to going again!
Kayla E
Amazing Massage I am almost 37 weeks pregnant and I needed this! Jessica was awesome, my only regret is not knowing about them earlier in my pregnancy
Angel K
Happy Momma I am a massage therapist and am very picky about the massages I receive. Jessica gave me a 60 minute massage yesterday, and it was fabulous! It was relaxing yet therapeutic. I will be scheduling my next appointment very soon!
Jessica
Great Massage So comforting I fell asleep. Felt so much relief.
KRYSHAUN G
Really relaxing I enjoyed my massage experience with Miss Jessica.This was the first massage I've ever received and I have to admit the environment was very warm and calming.Definitely will be returning!!!
Hannah C
Mommy to be I work in the medical field and am constantly sitting and standing. My desk chair at work does not give me good support and the message I got was just what I needed! Renata even showed me the spots to avoid on my feet until closer to my due date, just incase my husband has the urge to rub them (lol). I plan on going back and I hope I get gift cards for Christmas!!!
S Grant
Great massage The prenatal massage I received was very good and I felt 100% better afterwards. Thanks a lot
Renee J
Fabulous massage! I received a wonderful massage from Jessica in my 6th month of pregnancy with my twins. All of my tight spots were worked out and I left feeling relaxed and more comfortable! Thank you Jessica!
AO
Relaxing! I went for a massage late in my pregnancy and enjoyed it so much! I didn't want to leave as I felt so comfortable, relaxed and my body felt great. I haven't had too many massages and Jessica made me feel very comfortable. It wasn't like going to a regular shop/spa with many people around, which I don't like. Much more homey feel and way more comfortable with just one on one atmosphere. I liked it so much I bought another massage.
Mark G
Sports & Wellness Jessica is the best at massaging away aches & muscle pains! I would recommend anyone to make an appointment.
Deanna S
Heavenly After finding out I was pregnant with twins, I knew I needed to find ways to relax. After all, I have a full-time job, my 4 year old and my 1 year old that all keep me beyond busy. I had planned to return to see Jessica but the pregnancy was draining me and it took until my 22nd week to visit. Twin pregnancy has been so hard on my body and my mind. I knew that these massages were perfect because I saw Jessica throughout my second pregnancy and was hooked. After leaving my massage on Friday, I felt like a new person. My body felt rejuvenated, my mind felt relaxed and it's been awhile since I felt like that. I plan to return throughout the remainder of this pregnancy because there is nothing better than feeling rejuvenated when your body is working triple time.
Cherrell S
Great Massage I really enjoyed the massage and felt really good and relaxed after. I will be back
prenatal massage I went for a prenatal massage during week 30 of my pregnancy. Massage was fantastic- super relaxing and much needed. Not sure why I waited so long. I definitely recommend a prenatal massage from Jessica. During the massage where you are lying on your side was the coziest I have been my whole pregnancy. Great great!!
Katie T
First Prenatal Massage I loved my massage with Jessica. It was very relaxing and comfortable. I cannot wait to book my next one!
Jodie M
Loved it Thank you so much! It was my first pregnancy massage, but Jessica made me feel comfortable and very relaxed! Can't wait to come back!
Jackie P
Wonderful morning massage! Review of Jessica Heno Jessica's massage was the bright spot of my morning. She really knows exactly how to get the kinks out of a pregnant woman's body. She made sure I was extremely comfortable throughout the entire massage. I'll definitely be returning in the third trimester!
Ahhh!! Loved my 90 minute massage from Jessica! She was extremely personable and did wonders to my aching back. I would highly recommend to anyone!
Dayana M
Sent from Heaven I truly believe some people are sent from heaven to make other people feel better and Jessica in my eyes is that person. I went for first appointment in August before having to move out of state and dealing your other family issues, this massage was the best I've ever had. It was done so professional and with the up most care and delicacy. If I was still back in N.O. I would defiantly go back.
Jennifer A
AMAZING! I have tried many different place in New Orleans and my massages at Nola Maternal Insticts have been the best by fair!!! I went through out my pregnancy and I still go. I would highly recommend Nola Maternal Instincts! Even better that the Ritz !
Kea S
Review... I've really enjoyed my massages with Jessica so far. I was told that I should not have any work done my first trimester, but thankfully I met Jessica before long. After my first massage, I felt more like myself. Perhaps it helped eliminate some of the toxins resulting from the pregnancy. Nonetheless, I look forward to many more to come!
M B
Wonderful experience! I had an amazing massage with Jessica. I came to see her the morning of my due date, as I wanted to do everything I could to get labor started before my doctor set an induction date. The massage was great! Jessica really knows how to deal with pregnant bodies, and has the perfect set-up. And I don't know if its her massage during which she tried to stimulate certain oxytocin points, the long walk I took later that day, or the spicy food I had, or maybe a combination of the 3, but I was had my first contractions at 5:30a the following day! I highly recommend Nola Maternal Instincts.

Prenatal massage Review of Jessica Heno I had a wonderful massage experience with Jessica! She is super warm and friendly. The environment was perfect and Jessica's hands were gentle with the perfect amount of pressure and firmness. I wish I could afford to go every day!

Simply Amazing Massage Review of Jessica Heno Jessica truly has a gift for what she does. From the moment I walked in to NOLA Maternal Instincts she made me feel comfortable and at home. Her massage honestly made me more relaxed than I have been in MONTHS (perhaps years haha). I was so impressed at how she paid attention to every knot of tension present in my muscles. Every part of my body was coaxed deeper into relaxation. I am pressure sure even my sinuses and ears got a rub down, no joke! I am not pregnant but really wish I had known about Jessica when I was. I will not hesitate to visit again. This was an awesome experience that I will recommend to all of my friends.

Notification and appointments I find this most helpful since I have a difficult time remembering appointments.

Postpartum Massage Had a wonderful and much needed postpartum massage by Jessica 3 months after I gave birth. Jessica applies just the right pressure where needed and listens to where my problem areas are. I was so relaxed and it was well overdue! I really don't know why I waited so long. My husband bought me the Mother's Day special so I have 2 more to use. Now it's time to find a babysitter!!

Amazing massage.......a must for any pregnant momma! 60 minute massage was perfect-will go back again!

Prenatal Massage This is my second pregnancy which has been really tough physically. I had a prenatal massage with Jessica and I honestly have to say it was WONDERFUL. She was amazing and applied just the right amount of pressure. Being 37w pregnant comfortable positioning during the massage was key. Jessica had all the pillows and wedges just perfect the entire massage. I left feeling amazing and will definitely be back. I highly recommend Maternal Instincts.

Practically floated out of there! Review of Jessica Heno I have been having back pain and soreness since my baby was born more than a year ago. Jessica was amazing! My back felt great when I walked out of there. I will definitely return soon for another massage - I don't know what took me so long in the first place!

Relaxing and Amazing! Review of Jessica Heno I'm in my 8th month of pregnancy and have begun to experience a bit of lower back pain and some overall aches associated with pregnancy, so I went to see Jessica! The massage was so relaxing and healing, and I feel so much better. My back no longer hurts, and I have been sleeping better since the massage. I will definitely visit her again in the final months of my pregnancy and beyond. She is professional, talented, and knowledgeable, and I highly recommend her.

Best Pre Natal Massage I thoroughly enjoyed my massage by Jessica. It was super relaxing and dissipated a lot of my most annoying/painful pregnancy symptoms!

Always the best I started going to Jessica, early on in my pregnancy for back pain, and from the first massage I knew that I had really lucked out. She is so sweet and really does and amazing job. Her massages are very thorough and I feel so relaxed afterwards. I continue to see her as often as I can even though my son is almost 2! I highly recommend her for all women in need of some tlc.

Amazing Massage My massage at NOLA Maternal Instincts was great! Jessica was great! I can't wait to go back for anoher massage very soon!

First Prenatal Massage Thankfully, I have had a pretty uneventful an easy pregnancy. It was not until the third trimester that I began to experience any discomfort. It was this discomfort that led me to book my first prenatal massage (and first massage in years for that matter). It was an extremely enjoyable experience and I haven't had any of the low back pain I had been experiencing previously, since my massage. I have already booked my second appointment and am looking forward to it.
Jasmine G
Mom to be Massage The message was great and Jessica was wonderful. I highly recommend to any pregnant woman to see Jessica and get a massage!
Carol S
Review Jessica is so amazing, I felt instantly better after she was done. It was so relaxing, can't wait til my next appointment.
Katie M
Incredible!! Jessica was wonderful!! The massage was better than I hoped for! It was 90 minutes of complete bliss during what is sometimes a very uncomfortable time during pregnancy (I'm 29 weeks). It was exactly what my body and my baby needed to relax and destress from work and others responsibilities! I'll for sure be back some time in the next 10 weeks!! Thanks!
Vanessa B
Best massages ever! These are the best massages I've ever gotten. And I've been to those well-known spas around town, but Maternal Instincts knows their clients and makes the whole experience very comfortable. Every woman (rather pregnant or not) needs to treat themselves to Maternal Instincts. I can't say enough about how happy I am every time I leave there. I'll never go to another spa for a massage. I found the best thing in town.
Lindsay P
Great Massage My massage and overall experience at NOLA Maternal Instincts was great! Jessica was wonderful, and I plan to go back again very soon.
Jaime M
First prenatal massage This is the first prenatal massage I've ever had, and the first massage I've had in a long time. It was great! Jessica made sure I was comfortable with positioning & room temp throughout the service. The massage was very relaxing & helped relieve aches in my back & shoulders. I can't wait to go back!
Jennifer A
Prenatal Massage The perfect way to relax anytime during your pregnancy! Especially the third trimester when you are most uncomfortable. Jessica exceeded my expectations and ill surely be back after the baby as well!! Loved it !
Michelle G
Prenanal Massage Such a wonderful experience! From start to finish, it was such a relaxing and enjoyable massage! I think I even dozed off for a few minutes which was awesome considering I haven't had much sleep with a 13 month old running around and being in my 2nd trimester with baby no.2. I hope to be able to make it back before my due date. I have already started recommending Jessica to my other pregnant friends! Thanks a bunch, Jessica!
Bobbie P
Best Message ever! Jessica is awesome! I am a fi believer of getting massages while pregnant and I would only go to Nola Maternal instincts to get them. Especially in the third trimester, a massage is the only way I ever really rest! She always listens to what I need out of a massage! I have referred her to all my preggo friends!
Alicia G
Pregnancy Massage I went in with extreme lower back pain from severe lordosis plus a severe case of fibromyalgia due to previous car accidents! I was in so much pain when I went in and running on basically no sleep for 2 days! When I left I was in no pain and I have not felt that fantastic in a long time! Jessica is amazing and anyone that is pregnant needs to please come here you will never regret it! This is someone who has lived in constant pain since I was 21 and now 36! I will definitely be coming back and pregnant ladies that come to Jessica please spread the word all pregnant ladies should have the opportunity to feel that fabulous.
Nancy B
message Wonderful as usual.....

Prenatal Massage I had the most amazing 60 min massage by Jessica on Friday! I am 34 weeks and overextended myself with too much walking last weekend. She transformed me into a relaxed and rejuvenated mom-to-be! I don't know why I waited so long to get a massage but I will surely be coming back to relieve the aches and pains of this beautiful pregnancy.
Best Massage I've Ever Had! I am 35 weeks and had a massage this weekend. I can honestly say that it was the best massage I've ever had. Being pregnant, she made me feel very comfortable and was very careful throughout the process. I would definitely recommend NOLA Maternal Instincts to anyone who is interested in a prenatal massage!

Highly recommend! A car accident left me with muscle pain, even 5 years after! When my pregnant belly started to be a real burden for my already sore back, I searched online for relief. After much research, I gave NOLA Maternal Instincts a try. It was a much needed blessing! Place was nice, clean and relaxing. I was never put face down on the massage table, but surrounded securely by pillows. My belly was gently caressed if requested (baby used to love it), and sessions were adapted to my specific needs. It was so good, I ended up going back every month until I gave birth! Two years after, I can still book an appointment, relax, enjoy a professional massage, and receive much needed relief. Also, the new place is more spacious, accessible and very relaxing. You will not regret visiting NOLA Maternal Instincts! Is amazing service at affordable prices. Thank you very much Jessica! Hope to visit soon!
Rheanna K
Mellowed out me and the baby I had a massage with Jessica when I was 38 weeks pregnant. Felt so much better that I was giggly for the rest of the day. Am definitely thinking of making another appointment for after the baby's born.
Dani M
Absolutely amazing! This was my first massage ever and I'm just about 7 months pregnant! It was so relaxing, and it totally helped my aching back and knees! I will most definitely be back before and after baby :)
Julie B
Absolutely wonderful The massage was perfect - Jessica is able to find exactly the spot that ails and works magic to get one feeling better. Each massage is precisely tailored to meet your every need.
Sarah J
Truly wonderful massage therapist I visited Jessica twice during my pregnancy. Both times I left feeling relaxed and relieved of the back pains I was experiencing. As an added bonus I went in close to my due date hoping to help me speed along labor and labor started that night. Thanks Jessica!
Mandy R
Definitely will return Jessica is a intuative masseuse with a caring spirit. She is very attentive and friendly and I always leave feeling relaxed. The atmosphere is warm, comfortable and homely which makes unwinding all the easier. I will definitely be back throughout my pregnancy and would recommend Maternal instincts to any woman in need of a great massage!
Amanda N
She definately caters to pregnant women & someone who isn't pregnant. I've been for both. I'm 3 weeks away from having my son and its very hard for me to get comfortable. However, when Jessica was doing a full body massage I was very comfortable & relaxed. This is the 2nd time ive had a massage by her (1st time I wasnt pregnant) & both time she was great and my expectations were met! I plan on going back when I get a chance!
Eugenie B
Best massage both during pregnancy and post partum! Jessica did such a wonderful job during my pregnancy that of course I had to continue post partum. I look forward to each and every time I go and feel so relaxed afterwards. She is hands down the best in the business!!!!
