Pre-natal Massage

Prenatal massage is a natural-touch therapy aimed to alleviate pregnancy related symptoms. Due to the expansion of your ribcage and pelvis, there is extra stress added to your intercostal muscles (muscles between your ribs), and low-back muscles. Prenatal massage concentrates on these specific areas in addition to other aches and pain you may be experiencing (like your feet). All which will ease walking, fatigue and breathing.

Some Benefits of Prenatal Massage:

  • Eases backaches, headaches, shoulder and neck aches that may be caused by muscle tension and shifts in posture to accommodate increasing weight.
  • Decreases pain in the pelvic/hip area
  • Increases circulation and digestion
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Helps reduce swelling in hands and lower legs
  • Can alleviate the stress on weight-bearing joints, like the knees, which are impacted by the extra weight of a growing baby
  • Promotes relaxation and deep breathing
  • Helps stabilize hormone levels by lessening anxiety
