Pre-natal & Post-natal Massage
Moms, your body is a wonder. Creating new life can take a toll, and getting regular prenatal and postnatal massages can help you and your baby thrive.
Being pregnant is hard work. Hormones going crazy, skin stretching, joints loosening, and weight gain can bring aches and pains as well as nausea and sleeplessness. Despite the anticipation and excitement of pregnancy, sometimes all a mom-to-be really wants is the TLC that comes with a massage. Of course, giving birth takes its own toll on the body. That’s why postnatal massage is a new mommy’s best friend.
What Are Prenatal and Postnatal Massage?
- Pre-natal Massage: As good as it would feel to enjoy the pampering and muscle release of a professional massage during pregnancy, it’s important to choose your massage therapist carefully. We’re certified in prenatal therapy, which means we know how to relieve the pressure and stress your changing body is experiencing. In other words, this means that massages can help reduce stress hormones, increase blood flow, and optimize your lymphatic system. In addition, it’s a wonderful way to relax and help you practice self-care.
- Post-natal Massage: Giving birth is one of the most physically demanding experiences most women experience. In addition to the physical and emotional strain, there’s the lack of sleep and constant demands that can leave you feeling utterly spent. With this in mind, getting a postnatal massage (or even better, scheduling them on a regular basis), you’ll not only get some much-needed “me” time – you’ll also feel better rested and ready to take care of your baby.
Mom, you’re probably well overdue for a relaxing massage. And we know how hard it can be to carve out time to take care of yourself. But we also know how much better you’ll feel when you practice good self-care. For this purpose, when you book your massage, be sure to tell us you’re expecting or that you’ve recently given birth. We’ll spend just a little extra time getting to know you so we can completely customize your massage. Therefore, be sure to book your appointment today.
