Prenatal Massage

Attending to the unique needs of expectant mothers is the goal of every prenatal massage. Certified prenatal massage therapists are specially trained to tailor their massage techniques to help alleviate common pregnancy complaints and to protect both mother and child during the massage.

How Does Prenatal Massage Work?

Prenatal massage is unique in its application. During the massage, the expectant mother is carefully supported by cushions and pillows in order to provide superior comfort and protect her and the baby from strain or injury. This also helps alleviate extra strain on the lower back and pelvic areas when the pressure of massage techniques are applied.

Prenatal massage is especially gentle, and deep tissue techniques are never used as a safety precaution. In fact, many areas of the body are avoided during this massage to protect mother and child, while extra attention is given to areas of the body that are particularly affected by pregnancy, like the feet and back.

The benefits of prenatal massage are numerous. The gentle kneading massage can be supremely comforting both physically and emotionally to an expectant mother, and the psychological benefit itself can be quite therapeutic. In addition to stress and anxiety reduction, prenatal massage can help reduce expectant mothers’ common aches and annoyances, like swollen ankles lower back pain, leg cramps and headaches.

Women with normal, low-­risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from prenatal massage. However, women in high­-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before beginning a massage therapy program.
