Prenatal Massage Benefits

Pregnancy is typically a wonderful time in a woman's life, but the physical reality of

creating another human often comes with discomforts that can be alleviated by the

expertise of one of our qualified massage therapists.

What is a prenatal massage? It is a full body massage performed by a certified prenatal

massage therapist. It is much like a Swedish massage, but with a few modifications

that ensure the safety and comfort of both mother and baby.

Ratia, one of our therapists, explains the benefits this way: “Prenatal massage is

beneficial for expectant mothers at any time after the first trimester of their pregnancy.

Therapists with proper training are able to provide safe, therapeutic massages for

expectant women. Those who may be considered at high risk must be cleared by their

doctor. We have had women comment after their massage that it provided them with

the most comfort they have had throughout their pregnancy. Additionally, it can help

with relaxation and releasing tension in tight muscles. Many pregnant women have pain

or tightness in their hips that is reduced by laying on their sides during the massage,

while giving the therapist greater access to those areas.”
