Prenatal massage is a crucial aspect to perinatal wellbeing. Prenatal massage supports your body in many ways, from alleviating common aches and pains to supporting your muscles’ ability to release which helps your body to relax into each contraction when labor comes.
In prenatal massage, we avoid the typical prone position (belly down) and instead utilize side lying position and elevated supine position with many pillows to ensure you’re comfortable. These massages are tailored to all trimesters and come with education and coaching on positioning to assist in sleep and relaxation.
Masssage after pregnancy or birth is customized to bring ease and comfort to your body. The postpartum body may have aches and pains associated with holding and feeding baby as well as any injuries or challenges that occurred while pregnant or during birth.
In postpartum massage, the goal is that you feel relaxed, to ease tension, bring warmth into the body, ease anxiety and stress, reduce swelling, improve sleep, and balance hormones.
