Prenatal Massage

This massage has been developed to provide a safe, gentle and yet effective therapeutic massage for the pregnant mother. You will receive a massage that totally relaxes the muscles with gentle rocking and shaking. Slow supported stretches will also be added for greater relaxation and improved range of motion. The treatment will be very pampering and nurturing to both mother and child. Prenatal massage is similar to massage during non-pregnancy in terms of the goals (relaxation, pain relief, increased circulation & mobility, etc.). However, due to the changes during pregnancy modifications are made to the treatment. To accommodate swollen tender breasts and a growing belly special pillows, positioning and techniques are utilized to ensure comfort for both the expecting mother and baby. With increasing weight, a changing center of gravity and the many other changes associated with pregnancy prenatal massage can help provide relief and a sense of well being that is much deserved.[1]
