Prenatal Massage

Why Massage During Pregnancy?

Your growing and changing shape is one of nature's most incredible occurrences, and a knowledgeable pregnancy massage therapist can help you gain the most from this specialized treatment! We know that the prenatal period can be a very stressful time for a pregnant person - both physically AND emotionally. Massage not only helps to relieve the aches and pains of pregnancy, but offers an opportunity for the mind to de-stress and relax as well.

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 increase 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.

The type and amount of clothing you wear during massage is your personal choice. Your comfort is paramount. Your body will always be draped or covered other than only that part being gently massaged at the moment. Be comfortable-relax-and enjoy!
