Expectant moms experience unique physical and emotional changes that occur as a result of increased weight, shifting posture and adjusting hormone levels. While this is a beautiful period of heightened expectation and joy, mothers-to-be also endure an increase in physical discomfort that ranges from muscular tension and headaches to pressure on the knees.
Prenatal massage is a natural, touch therapy treatment aimed at alleviating these and other pregnancy related symptoms. Experienced therapists choose techniques that are safe and effective for pregnant women. Prenatal massage offers a wide range of benefits: increased circulation, improved digestion, reduced fatigue and much more.
All expectant mothers should check with their doctors prior to getting a massage. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure or are in the early stages of pregnancy, pre-natal massage may not be recommended. It is important to share information about your condition and your preferences with your massage therapist. The therapist will adjust your massage to make it as soothing and as useful as possible based on your personal needs and preferences.
