Pregnancy Massage

Help alleviate many of the symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy

What is Pregnancy Massage?

Pregnancy Massage is specifically tailored to your needs and your changing body, and your therapist, who is trained and experienced in pregnancy massage, will adjust her techniques accordingly.

During pregnancy, these massages may not only help you relax, but may also relieve some of the insomnia, joint pain, neck and back pain that often accompanies pregnancy.

How does it work?

Pregnancy Massage can help alleviate many of the symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy. During this amazing time of physical and emotional change, massage can be of enormous benefit to both the mother and baby.

The Massage helps to prepare the body for the changes that occur during this special time and will help to promote a healthy, happy pregnancy, as well as labour and recovery period.

A typical session

Your session will be tailored to your requirements, working on areas of your choice, including the abdomen, arms/hands, feet/legs, whole back/shoulders and face and scalp. Massages can be for 30, 60, or 90 minutes.

How can Pregnancy Massage help you?

Studies show that women who receive regular massages have fewer complications during their pregnancy and labour and that their babies are more settled and content, suffering fewer baby ailments.

Although pregnancy is a wonderful time, many changes take place in the mother’s body as the baby develops. This can put strain and pressure on the joints, ligaments and organs causing some pain and discomfort which massage can help alleviate.

In addition research also shows that the baby can greatly benefit from massage as endorphins (feel good chemicals) are released by the mother during massage that are passed onto the baby. Quite often the therapist will feel your baby kick and move as it too responds to the massage treatment. It can also help with:

Short answer: not usually. As with a regular massage, it is not recommended if you are in the acute stage of an injury and have not sought medical attention. Meaning, you broke your ankle and instead of seeing a doctor, you came to saw us. While we feel honored that you trust us, we do need your doctor to see you first! Just as with pregnancy, we like to know that you are in communication with your medical team to ensure they believe a massage would be beneficial for you.

You may be relieved to know that in most cases it is safe (and beneficial!) to receive massage up to your due date and beyond. Many women schedule a session on their due date so they have something to look forward to if they have not yet gone into labor. A massage is a great way to prepare your body for the experience of giving birth. Women on bed rest should receive modified massage, (very light pressure on extremities and no abdominal massage) and you should always consult your doctor if you have special circumstances.

Each woman and each pregnancy is different, so there is no standard answer for this question. If you are planning to use massage therapy as an integral part of your prenatal care we suggest once a month in the first trimester, twice a month in the second and third. If you are having a difficult pregnancy with back pain, sharp leg and hip pains or sleeplessness we recommend increasing your session to 1 1 /2 hours or coming once a week in the last trimester.
