Request a Prenatal Massage during pregnancy to help reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle and joint pain, and facilitate improved labor outcomes. Prenatal Massage uses Swedish Massage techniques to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body.
Prenatal Massage may also help with mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health, reduction of stress hormones norepinephrine and cortisol and increased “feel good” hormones, dopamine and serotonin. Prenatal Massage helps to address sciatic nerve pain in late pregnancy by releasing the tension on nearby muscles. This type of massage is also beneficial in reducing back and joint pain, muscle tension and headaches.
Request a Postpartum Massage to manage the residual body aches of childbirth, assist in hormone regulation, reduce swelling, allow for better sleep and improve breastfeeding results. A Postpartum Massage can speed recovery and help to alleviate residual body aches from pregnancy such as arm, shoulder and back pain from child care and breastfeeding.
Always discuss your desire to incorporate Prenatal or Postpartum Massage with your medical provider to address any risks or existing conditions.
