Prenatal Massage

take care of YOUR changing body with prenatal massage

 

Why You Receive Prenatal Massage

The expanding popularity of prenatal massage is a result of the modern tendency to increase levels of well-being, education and opportunity. Your growing and changing shape is one of nature's most incredible occurrences. Knowledgeable prenatal massage therapists can help you gain the most from this specialized treatment.

Importantly, the prenatal time can be a very stressful physical and emotional time for a mother-to-be. Proper management of stress itself is of great importance. Clearly documented evidence exists to suggest that very high levels of stress may increase the probability of pre-term labor and lower birth weight of the newborn.

Why is Back Pain so Prevalent?

As your pregnancy advances, several common conditions usually occur.

The Prenatal Massage Process

As in most massage therapy, you will fill out a medical history form complete with disclosure of any conditions or complications, which have arisen in the past or as a result of the pregnancy. Together, you and the therapist will execute a treatment strategy that will effectively deal with the conditions you request relief from or help with. This could include exercises you can perform while at home. Your treatment plan will vary according to which trimester you are in.

In general, your pregnancy massage will involve sitting in a slightly reclined position or lying comfortably on your side; the use of pillows to increases your relaxation and comfort and sometimes, special equipment including a reclining chair that allows you to move comfortably from side to side. Our goal is always to customize your therapy to conditions you wish to alleviate or promote.
