Prenatal massage is customized to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. Our therapists trained in prenatal massage will adjust their techniques accordingly to make sure you and your baby are comfortable physically mentally and emotionally during the massage. Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, meaning your pelvic joints are less stable, which also changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you’re carrying and you may end up with an aching lower back. Prenatal massage improves mood and lowers stress levels, reduces prenatal depression and anxiety, lowers the risk of preterm birth and low birth weight in infants of women with prenatal depression and reduces swelling in the legs. Getting a pregnancy massage can also put you in a more relaxed state of mind to help you cope with all the big changes that are going on in your life.
