During a Prenatal Massage
Our massage therapists take extra care to ensure the mother-to-be is comfortable. We use soft cushions and pillows to support the body while applying pressure of massage techniques.
Many find they prefer to lie on their back with slightly raised cushioning through the second trimester. Your therapist will use specialized pregnancy massage techniques as well as reflexology and Swedish Massage. Our goal is always to address your specific requests and needs.
Massage Can Relieve Everyday Symptoms
Massage for pregnant women offers many benefits. Be sure to let your therapist know about any symptoms you need relief from. These might include:
- Headaches can often be a regular symptom during pregnancy. Massage focusing on the head, face, neck and shoulders can help. Receiving regular massage decreases stress and tension which can reduce the chances of migraines or tension headaches.
- Muscle tension from carrying the extra weight of a baby can often occur. Encouraging blood flow to the afflicted areas through massage can alleviate that tension.
- Fatigue, backaches, leg cramps and swelling afflict many pregnant women. Fortunately, massage for pregnant women can alleviated them all.
In addition, the body’s release of serotonin, endorphins and dopamine increases during and after a massage.
Be sure to consult with your doctor or midwife before booking a massage with one of our professional prenatal massage therapists. If you experience any discomfort during your pregnancy massage, inform your therapist immediately so they can help in any way possible.
