Pre/Post Natal Massage
Pregnancy is the perfect time to encourage subtle changes in the mother’s body due to the presence of the hormone relaxin, which helps to naturally loosen up ligaments and joints to prepare her for birth. Prenatal massages are a great way to alleviate many of the discomforts that accompany pregnancy such as muscular cramping, stiffness, backaches, leg cramps and headaches. It is also a time you can spend to relax and rest before the baby comes.
What to expect during your pre / post-natal massage:
During your prenatal massage, your therapist will arrange pillows and bolsters on the table to ensure a comfortable and safe massage experience for both you and baby no matter what trimester you are in.
Post-natal massages are more specifically focused on relieving any muscular pain post birth and helping the new mom maintain proper posture and body mechanics while caring for her new infant.
