Prenatal & Postpartum Massage
Prenatal massage involves therapeutic treatment of the muscles and soft tissues of the body, to improve circulation, reduce strain on muscles and joints, and to help with conditions common to prenatal pregnancy stages, as well as postpartum. It can be particularly beneficial in the later stages of pregnancy, as the growth of the baby can result in an increase in pain, strains, and aches, as the mother’s body adapts to rapid changes.
Massage Therapists abide by specific pregnancy related guidelines, in order to provide safe and effective treatments.
Some of the benefits of Pre and post natal Massage Therapy include help with:
- Breast tenderness
- Edema (Increased in swelling)
- Leg cramps, sciatica
- Muscle aches and pain
- Stress and anxiety
Post natal massage therapy can also help with hormone regulation, circulatory and lymphatic problems, and can improve nerve pain. This type of massage therapy can also positively help the mind, by reducing stress and anxiety. Postpartum massage can help new mothers in recovery after delivery.
