Prenatal massage is massage therapy that meets your needs as an expectant mom. Pregnancy changes your center of gravity and puts considerable pressure on your back, legs, feet, and many other parts of your body, so it’s not surprising that many pregnant women experience frequent aches and pains.
Prenatal massage helps ease those aches and pains while providing a nurturing and calming touch for you and your baby as you navigate through your pregnancy.
Before your prenatal massage, the Inner G Restorative and Holistic Care team helps you relax with comfortable pillows on a lightly heated table. You’ll lie on your side with your belly supported.
They understand that pregnancy can be uncomfortable at times, so they do everything possible to help you feel relaxed, supported, and nurtured during your massage sessions.
Prenatal massage involves gentle techniques and a light touch. The certified massage therapists typically cover many parts of the body, from the head to the back to the ankles and feet.
Before your prenatal massage, you’ll discuss your particular areas of discomfort and goals for the massage with your massage therapist so they know where to concentrate.
Prenatal massage offers a wide range of benefits including:
Prenatal massage can also lead to a less painful labor. Some studies show that prenatal massage can shorten the first two stages of labor as well.
The Inner G Restorative and Holistic Care team recommends prenatal massage after the first trimester of pregnancy (from week 13 onward). Additionally, the team recommends checking with your OB/GYN to make sure prenatal massage is appropriate in your particular circumstances before scheduling your first session.
Many women have prenatal massages once a month throughout their second and third trimesters.
