Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage:  Prenatal massage  during pregnancy is a vital support to women as their bodies undergo major shifts and changes. Your prenatal massage therapist has been trained to know the exact spots to focus on to nurture expecting mothers.  Massage is safe at all stages of pregnancy.

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage – to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But prenatal massage is also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.

Prenatal massage is performed by having the mother-to-be, propped with pillows, lie on her side or in a semi-reclined position.

Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add this to that the extra weight you’re carrying and you may find you’ve got an aching lower back.

Prenatal massage during pregnancy is a vital support to women as their bodies undergo major shifts and changes. Your prenatal massage therapist has been trained to know the exact spots to focus on to nurture expecting mothers, as well as potential reflexology and acupressure points to avoid.

Regular prenatal massage can reduce emotional and muscular tension, ease cramping and spasms, increase blood and lymph circulation and decrease swelling. It’s so important to nurture and support your body with prenatal massage through the many magical stages of pregnancy.

Postpartum Massage

Postpartum massage is a wonderful reward and a deserving compliment to this joyful time.

Postpartum massage allows the new mother to concentrate less on pain and more on their precious new baby. It helps to relax the muscles and de-stress the body and mind after everything it has just endured. Studies show women who receive massage at least twice per week lower their levels of cortisol (stress hormones), which reduce the risk of postpartum depression.

Postpartum massage is very beneficial and can help with the physical and emotional toll of being a new mother. Some of the benefits of postpartum massage include:

  • Reducing the time it takes to recover from labor and delivery!
  • Relieving muscular tension caused by nursing and caring for your newborn!
  • Refreshing the mother dealing with sleep deprivation!
  • Providing the new mother an opportunity to take care of herself
