Gentle Massage for Moms-to-Be

Pamper yourself and baby. Your massage therapist can help sooth away the discomforts associated with pregnancy. As you relax, massage helps relieve back soreness, tired feet, and other important areas of your changing body.

Edema, or swelling of the joints during pregnancy, is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels by the heavy uterus. Your massage therapist will stimulate soft tissues to reduce collection of fluids in swollen joints, which also improves the removal of tissue waste, carried by the body’s lymph system. Other potential benefits you may experience from incorporating a massage regimen into your pre-natal plan:

Reduced back pain
Reduced joint pain
Improved circulation
Reduced edema
Reduced muscle tension and headaches
Reduced stress and anxiety
Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles
Better sleep

Women with the following conditions should speak with a health care provider prior to receiving pregnancy massage:

High risk pregnancy
Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH)
Preeclampsia
Previous pre-term labor
Experiencing severe swelling, high blood pressure, or sudden, severe headaches
Recently gave birth
