Prenatal Massage Therapy

Every expecting mother deserves a stress releaser to not only relax but also to help them eliminate unwanted aches and pains of their changing bodies.

Expect our therapists to use their anatomy knowledge of the pregnant body and tailor each massage to you in order to get the greatest results. The expectant mother will be supported by side line and/or face-down pillows designed to accommodate a pregnant body while our therapists work on your trigger points, apply gentle acupressure, ligament release, active stretching to help mitigate or eliminate pain and physical stress from pregnancy.

Some benefits of massage during pregnancy:

  • Reduces stretch marks
  • Supports circulation
  • Improves flexibility
  • Reduces stress, anxiety & depression
  • Reduces swelling
  • Helps eliminate cramps and spasms
  • Sciatica pain
  • Improve sleep
  • Help regulate hormones
  • Lessens chance of birthing complications

Our Prenatal Massage promotes attention on a healthy pregnancy. We provide a major focus on proper circulation all the way to the lower legs to help eliminate fluid retention. We work on decreasing mid to lower back pain and encourages an easier path to get each mother to term.
