Relax and rejuvenate with pre-natal massage!

The body goes through many changes during pregnancy and so should your massage.

Hormone levels change and your body and posture undergo many transformations to accommodate your growing baby and prepare you for childbirth. Due to this your body doesn’t require the same techniques you may have experienced with massage in the past. Our pregnancy massage is relaxing and rejuvenating and deals with the common issues related to pregnancy and can help with the aches and pains associated.

 

Here is a list of some of the common issues pregnancy massage can help with:

  • Lower back/ hip pain
  • Edema/ swelling in the fingers and ankles
  • Leg cramps
  • Headaches
  • Neck stiffness
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Muscle tension
  • Depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

We’re here to help those aches and pains associated with pregnancy, clear your mind of stress and balance your hormones.

By experiencing one of our specialized pregnancy massages you will feel many benefits including:

  • Greater vitality
  • Less fatigue
  • Soothes nervous tension
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Decrease in swelling
  • Relaxes mother and baby

Treatment consists of a full body Swedish relaxation massage. As your body releases the hormones relaxin, progesterone and estrogen throughout the body during pregnancy you don’t require a firm pressure to get results, which means it’s easier for you to relax and have your aches and pains addressed at the same time. You may be lying on your tummy or your side depending on what stage of pregnancy you are at.

Massage is safe during all stages of pregnancy even during the first trimester as it can help calm you, reduce stress and assist with circulation. During the second trimester you may feel more energetic and a lot better during your pregnancy, however at this stage your body is starting to undergo postural and structural changes to accommodate your growing baby, this will continue through out your pregnancy until you are ready to give birth, massage can help you during this time with the associated aches and pains and help to relieve any stress you may be feeling. Massage during pregnancy may also help labor outcomes.
