Pregnancy Massage

    Pregnancy Massage, also called Prenatal Massage or Maternity Massage is a wonderful treatment for the mother-to-be! This massage shares many of the goals of regular massage such as relaxation, increase in mobility, relief from sore muscles and joints, and a general feeling of well-being. Pregnancy massage is also specifically tailored to the unique needs of the pregnant woman and her changing body. Our therapists are specifically trained in the advanced modality of Pregnancy Massage, and adjust the technique, pressure, and positioning accordingly. Our office offers a comfortable quiet environment and we make sure the treatment is all about the mom!

    Some of the specific benefits of pregnancy massage can include:

    • Relief of muscular tension, especially in low back, upper back, shoulders, neck and feet
    • Reduction of stress on weight-bearing joints
    • Improved body awareness, including body mechanics and movement during structural changes
    • Reduced anxiety and stress during time of transition
    • Increased ease in breathing due to relaxation of muscles involved in respiration
    • Preparation of muscles used during childbirth
    • Reduced swelling in hands and feet
    • Reduced sciatic pain and leg cramps
    • Emotional support and nurturing
    • Improved sleep

     

    Because of the tremendous physical and hormonal changes that occur in the expectant mother, we generally do not recommend any massage during the first trimester. The second and third trimesters are wonderful times to experience prenatal massage. An exception to this would be in the case of headaches or sinus problems. If the client is experiencing either of these conditions and is not able to find relief we recommend a half hour head and neck massage for relief.

    During the second and third trimesters many women choose to have massage every other week, or every week. This provides regular comfort and support as your body changes. Massage during pregnancy is safe for most mothers. You should notify your therapist if you have any of the following conditions: heavy discharge, continued abdominal pain, diabetes, fever, rapid weight gain, high blood pressure, morning sickness, pre-eclampsia, or severe headaches. Some of these conditions are contraindicated for massage during your pregnancy, and you may be required to get permission from your physician if any of these conditions exist. In addition, if you experience a high-risk pregnancy or have asthma, liver or renal conditions, heart disease, hypertension, or you are under 20 or over 40 you should consult your physician prior to scheduling.
