Service Description

Prenatal massages are simply put, a pregnancy massage. It is adapted for the anatomical changes you go through during pregnancy. In a traditional massage, you might spend half the time lying face-down on your stomach (which is not possible with a baby belly) and half the time facing up (a position that puts pressure on a major blood vessel that can disrupt blood flow to your baby and leave you feeling nauseous). As your shape and posture changes, we will make accommodations with special cushioning systems or holes that allow you to lie face down safely, while providing room for your growing belly and breasts. Or you might lie on your side with the support of pillows and cushions. It is Indian tradition to give an expecting mother daily massages leading up to the birth of a child. After the birth both mother and child are given 41 days of massage to help tone and strengthen the weary muscles of the mother and the new-born fragile muscles of the infant. Prenatal massages are generally considered safe after the first trimester, as long as you let your massage therapist know you’re pregnant. But you’ll want to avoid massage during the first three months of pregnancy as it may trigger dizziness and add to morning sickness. Research shows that massage can reduce stress hormones in your body and relax and loosen your muscles. It can also increase blood flow, which is so important when you're pregnant, and keep your lymphatic system working at peak efficiency. It reconnects your mind with your body, a connection that's comforting especially when you are pregnant with a child. During pregnancy, regular prenatal massages may not only help you relax, but a study at the University of Miami School of Medicine suggests that massage therapy might have multiple positive effects, including: • Joint pain • Neck and back pain • Insomnia – or lead to better sleep in general • Sciatica (pain, numbness, and/or weakness that radiate along the sciatic nerve from the lower back to the buttocks and leg) • Leg cramping • Swelling in your hands and feet (as long as that swelling isn't a result of preeclampsia) • Headaches and sinus congestion • Carpal tunnel pain • Lowered anxiety • Overall mood improvement
