Prenatal massage is perfect for reducing anxiety, relieving joint pains and muscle aches, improving lymphatic and blood circulation, and generally reducing the discomfort associated with the physical and mental changes which occur during pregnancy.
Reduced back pain, reduced joint pain, improved circulation, reduced edema, reduced muscle tension, improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles, reduced stress and anxiety, and better sleep are all benefits of prenatal massage.
To maximize benefits we recommend regularly scheduled massages beginning after the first trimester in your pregnancy.
Talk to your massage therapist about your problem areas, which is why you are there in the first place. It’s important to note that how undressed you are is up to you. Of course, any areas you need worked on should be exposed.
The massage therapist will work on your problem areas, kneading and stroking as needed. After the massage, the therapist will leave the room to allow you to get dressed.
