What Are The Benefits of Massage While Pregnant?
As we know, the stress of pregnancy can have varying degrees of impact on a women’s body. Regular massages can help to relax muscle tension and soreness while improving blood flow.
In addition, studies have shown that massage can help to reduce stress and anxiety. It can help to relieve pains in the back from carrying weight as well as in hip and knee joints. Relief for women dealing with sciatic and other nerve pain can be addressed too.
Often, there is an improvement in the oxygenation of tissues and muscles as better circulation is promoted. This can help to reduce swelling as well.

Is Getting a Pregnancy Massage Different Than a Regular Massage?
Your massage will be similar to a regular massage, but will certainly be performed with more sensitivity and concern for your condition. This will impact how you lay on the table, the pressure of the massage and the focus of the massage to certain areas of your body.
The overall goal is for our clients to leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and re-energized to face the remaining days or months leading up to the birth date.
