PRE-NATAL RELAXING MASSAGE
Prenatal massage helps to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. It is tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, people who suffer from low back pain and possibly those with chronic headaches.
Carrying a baby inside you adds on gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you're carrying and you may find you've got an aching lower back.
Our certified prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman's sore spots are likely to be and may be able to provide some relief. (She'll also know which areas and techniques to avoid.) It is important to communicate with therapist and let us know where you need attention, including your positioning if its causing any discomfort. In any case, massage may decrease stress and promote relaxation, helping you cope with discomfort retention, back strain problem and sleeplessness problem.
