Seven-time winner "Best Prenatal Massage Atlanta" award
Prenatal Massage (Pregnancy Massage)
Prenatal Massage integrates a lighter deep tissue massage, with neuromuscular therapy. The client spends most of the session in a side-lying position with a support pillow under the head and between the thighs (to support the hips). Prenatal massage is very effective on low back pain caused by carrying extra pregnancy weight, legs and feet, as well as neck and shoulders. As the body changes constantly throughout pregnancy, we recommend bi-weekly sessions during the second and third trimesters.
The benefits of prenatal massage include a wide range of physiological, emotional and psychological benefits.
Alleviates stress on weight-bearing joints and musculo-fascial structures
Assists in remedying many of the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy: muscular discomforts, lower-back pain, upper-back pain, headaches, leg cramps, sciatica, stiffness, tension and knots, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, heartburn and acid reflux, fatigue, varicose veins, nasal congestion, shortness of breath, edema of the lower extremities, neck pain, interscapular pain, sacroiliac and hip joint pain and constipation
Increases blood circulation, which provides more oxygen and nutrients to both mother and fetus and stimulates the lymph system, thereby increasing immunity and removal of toxins
Stabilizes hormonal levels and helps hormonal changes
Soothes and relaxes the nervous system by releasing endorphins into the mother’s body. As a result, the expectant mother feels more relaxed and at ease, and will also sleep more easily and more deeply
Assists in maintaining good posture and adjusting to a changing alignment caused by the baby’s increasing weight. Massage increases muscle tone and flexibility, enhancing the ability to carry this extra weight while also relieving aches and pains, leg cramps and muscle spasms
Eases the load on the heart and helps keep blood pressure in check
Enhances the pliability of skin and underlying tissues
Supports the return of blood to the heart and increases blood flow to the uterus and placenta. With the enormous demands placed on the circulatory system during pregnancy, blood volume may increase up to 60 percent compared to pre-pregnancy levels. As pregnancy progresses and the uterus enlarges and presses deep into the pelvic bowl, venous return to the heart is hampered
Prepares the mother-to-be for an easier delivery with its sedating effect on the nervous system, promoting relaxation and stress relief
Offers a natural, safe, drug-free alternative choice for pain relief, since taking medications are often limited during a pregnancy for the sake of the unborn child
In addition to the physical benefits, prenatal massage provides expecting women with the emotional support and nurturing touch provided by nonsexual human touch and energy.
