What is Prenatal Massage Therapy?

Prenatal massage (also known as antenatal massage) is one of the best physical therapies an expecting mother can indulge in during the months of her pregnancy. The Touch Research Institute and other studies show positive results for the relief it can offer a pregnant woman. This research demonstrates that regular sessions every week, can significantly help the journey of soon-to-be mothers. Maternity massage also relieves many discomforts experienced during the child-bearing months. It can soothe many tensions such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps and headaches. Best of all, symptoms of hormonal change such as depression and anxiety may also be alleviated.

 

Relief from Maternity Stress and Symptoms

Massage for expecting mothers offer many benefits, and it's always a good idea to discuss with your prenatal massage therapist about symptoms you would like relief from. The top three relief requests are:

  • Muscle tension  - carrying the extra weight of a baby can be relieved by encouraging blood flow to any painful area.

  • Pregnancy relief - fatigue,  swelling (edema), back aches and cramps

  • Headaches relief -  massage to reduce the chances of migraines by relaxing trigger points

 

What can you expect?

Our licensed massage therapist will take extra care to ensure each pregnancy massage patient is comfortable. To do this, a side lying position is typically used to lighten any extra strain on the lower back and pelvic areas. This ensures the best-possible relaxation when a massage technique is applied. Simply put, everything is done to avoid any potential discomfort.
