Prenatal massage is a great way to focus on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through dramatic changes of pregnancy. This therapeutic massage can not only relieve stress but it is targeted areas that are normal for pain.
Prenatal massage can provide relief from:
- Lower Back Pain/Hip pain
- Neck Stiffness/Muscle tension
- Leg Cramping/Swelling
Pregnant women are positioned in a comfortable side position and are given cushions for comfort and support to avoid any physical strain while the massage takes place. Depending on what stage of pregnancy the mother-to-be is in, the massage therapist may incorporate other techniques such as Swedish massage.
It is important to communicate with your massage therapist at Soulstice Wellness Centre. Mothers with lower-risk pregnancies have an opportunity to benefit in numerous ways through various types of massages. If a mother does have a high-risk pregnancy, it is advised to consult with their doctor or midwife prior to receiving therapy.
All of these changes lead to quicker healing and overall healthier well-being.
