Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy MassagePregnancy Massage: Pregnancy massage is also known as pre-natal massage. It is massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother-to-be. Massage for the pregnant woman is a very special therapy as the body is continuously changing. These changes are both physical and hormonal which play an important role in the way in which the mother is feeling. Special attention and considerations to these changes is an integral component of Pregnancy Massage.

Is pregnancy massage different from traditional massage: Pregnancy massage differs from traditional massage in that special care is required in order to ensure proper positioning for the safety and care of both mother and baby. Physiological changes and hormonal shifts contribute to the special care required for expectant mothers.

Proper Positioning: The mother's body must be properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. Proper positioning ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby. Many professionals consider the best position for a pregnant woman during massage is side-lying. Tables that provide a hole in which the uterus can fit may not be reliable and can still apply pressure to the abdomen, or allow the abdomen to dangle, causing uncomfortable stretching of the uterine ligaments. If you're far along in your pregnancy, you might be positioned in a semi-reclining position, where you're upper back is lifted.

Pregnancy MassageWhat you can expect during a Pregnancy Massage: Pregnancy massage should be very soothing and relaxing in style. Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques, one of which is called Swedish Massage, which aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. Swedish Massage is the recommended prenatal massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy.

Is prenatal massage safe throughout the entire pregnancy?
Women can begin massage therapy at any point in their pregnancy – during the first, second, or third trimester. Many facilities will refuse to offer massage to a woman who is still in her first trimester because of the increased statistics for miscarriage associated with the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage: The benefits of massage can improve overall prenatal health for many pregnant women. Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can regulate hormones, reduce swelling and improve nerve pain, while promoting relaxation and deep breathing which is great for your baby.

Reiki Energy Therapy is a great adjunct to pre-natal massage. It can also be very beneficial to receive by itself as it helps to reduce stress and effect a deep relaxation response.
