Prenatal or Pregnancy Massage
Pregnancy is a very dynamic time for a soon-to-be mother to endure. The body goes through significant changes in a relatively short period of time. Massage therapy can help manage the aches and pains that accompany these changes.
Pregnancy can cause the following symptoms:
- Joint and Muscle Pain
- General or Momentary Fatigue
- Emotional or Physical Agitation
- Numbing/Tingling and Fluid Retention in the Extremities
These symptoms are commonly caused by:
- Hormonal Shifts
- Increased Weight
- Altered Movement due to
- Postural Changes
DID YOU KNOW: Your centre of gravity changes significantly during this time. Quick weight gain and baby growth causes a shift in your low back, pelvis and legs. Pain in the neck, back and hips is often the result
Massage therapy can be beneficial for the management of pain and stress associated with pregnancy. The application of this manual technique assists in providing relief from various pregnancy-related conditions, as well as helping to maintain functional movement. Special body cushions are placed on the treatment table, so that you can comfortable lay prone (face-down) during your treatment
