This time in your life will go by so very quickly. Make the most of it! Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation and physical relief.
Some of the benefits of prenatal massage include:
A specially-designed pre-natal massage table or supportive cushioning will be used during each of your treatments. Good communication will result in the best massage therapy experience for you and your baby, so please let me know if there is anything I can do to make you feel more comfortable.
Safety for you and your baby comes first. A thorough Assessment and up-to-date Health History Form are required to ensure that
massage therapy will be safe and effective at each stage of your pregnancy.
Massage is a wonderful way to take care of yourself after pregnancy.
The new mom typically finds her body has been altered by pregnancy and is further challenged by the physical demands of caring for a newborn. Holding, carrying and feeding positions can lead to strain through the mid back, neck, shoulders. Securing the baby while feeding can strain ligaments in the wrists and hands. Low back pain can occur from improper lifting mechanics.
Massage therapy can relieve the pain associated with tense muscles. It will help you relax and may improve your sleep. Most importantly, massage promotes your emotional, mental and physical well-being.
The massage table has breast recesses for the nursing mom, which allows her to lie comfortably on the table.
It is safe to start postnatal massage as soon you feel ready. You may have to wait a bit longer if you have had a caesarean section. Please contact me for more information.
