Pregnancy is a time when a woman’s body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using a side lying position with supportive pillows to ensure comfort, massage techniques are tailored specifically to the needs of the woman to reduce swelling, muscle and joint pain. Pregnancy massage also relaxes the nervous system, improves circulation, increases your energy, and helps to balance hormones reducing headaches, stress and anxiety. Let the benefits of prenatal massage support you and your baby during these exciting months to come.
Supportive touch that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, provide encouragement, and promote relaxation between contractions can beneficially alter a mother and baby’s birthing experience (e.g. speedier birth). Labor massage includes soothing strokes, holds, and counter pressure during and in between contractions based on the mother’s needs and desires. Benefits include muscle relaxation, decreased pain, decreased blood pressure and heart rate, and focused energy which promotes progress.
Call for pricing - it's very reasonable!
We know what happens to the pelvis during birth but we assume everything goes back to normal. That's not always the case. If you are experiencing discomfort or unwanted issues that were not present prior to pregnancy and/or birth, schedule an appointment today to receive the care you deserve.
