Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage

Focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. The gentle, noninvasive approach of prenatal massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labor and give her nurturing emotional support.

Benefits include:

Joint and Muscle Relief

Alleviates stress on weight-bearing joints and musculo-fascial structures.

Alleviates Many Pregnancy Discomforts

Assists in remedying many of the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy: muscular discomforts, lower-back pain, upper-back pain, headaches, leg cramps, sciatica, stiffness, tension and knots, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, heartburn and acid reflux, fatigue, varicose veins, nasal congestion, shortness of breath, edema of the lower extremities, neck pain, interscapular pain, sacroiliac and hip joint pain and constipation.

Increases Blood Circulation and Delivery of Nutrients to Mother and Baby

Increases blood circulation, which provides more oxygen and nutrients to both mother and fetus and stimulates the lymph system, thereby increasing immunity and removal of toxins.

Relief from Depression or Anxiety

Stabilizes hormonal levels and helps relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

Sleep Better

Soothes and relaxes the nervous system by releasing endorphins into the mother’s body. As a result, the expectant mother feels more relaxed and at ease, and will also sleep more easily and more deeply.

Better Posture During Pregnancy

Assists in maintaining good posture and adjusting to a changing alignment caused by the baby’s increasing weight. Massage increases muscle tone and flexibility, enhancing the ability to carry this extra weight while also relieving aches and pains, leg cramps and muscle spasms.

Keeps Blood Pressure In Check

Eases the load on the heart and helps keep blood pressure in check. Also supports the return of blood to the heart and increases blood flow to the uterus and placenta.

Provides Stress Relief and Relaxation For an Easier Delivery

Prepares the mother-to-be for an easier delivery with its sedating effect on the nervous system, promoting relaxation and stress relief

Drug-Free Alternative For Pain Relief

Offers a natural, safe, drug-free alternative choice for pain relief, since taking medications are often limited during a pregnancy for the sake of the unborn child
