Prenatal and Postpartum Massage
Pregnancy is an exciting and difficult journey. While your body is designed to go through the changes necessary to bring a new life into the world, you most likely won’t find the experience easy.
The stretching, weight increase and pressure can cause you to feel sluggish and heightened emotions can add to increased stress. Massage therapy, both during and after your pregnancy, can help you relax – soothing your aching muscles and swollen joints.
Many of our patients ask us: is massage safe for pregnant women? Massage during pregnancy should be carefully tailored by a certified prenatal massage therapist.
Because a woman’s body goes through drastic changes during pregnancy, certain precautions are taken to ensure safety and comfort. A professional massage during pregnancy is similar, though different, than the typical massage:
When done by a certified therapist professional, massage is a calming and relaxing event. During pregnancy, relaxing the muscles and calming the nerves helps reduce the strain and stress pregnancy often causes. Massage can relieve some of the discomfort that occurs as the body stretches with the growth of the baby and prepares for delivery. Our patients enjoy the calm atmosphere, relaxing process and muscle relief of prenatal massage.
After the birth of a baby, your body will experience hormone regulation, swelling and begin the healing process. Massage therapy will help your body get back to a pre-pregnancy state through calming and comforting massage. The stress-relieving and muscle-relaxing process of the massage will bring comfort and enhance the healing process for a new mother.
Postpartum message allows your body to heal quicker by relaxing muscles, increasing circulation and lowering stress. Massage has even been able to help improve sleep and breastfeeding for new mothers. Both deep massage and light pampering massage packages are available depending on what you prefer as a patient.
