Pregnancy Treatments

Don't trust anyone else

A Certified Prenatal/Postnatal massage therapist can help reduce the common physical aches and pains brought on during pregnancy.  Prenatal massage therapy is often helpful once the mother is in her second or third trimester of a low-risk pregnancy (with an abundance of caution, we do not perform massages during the first trimester). If you are having a higher risk pregnancy, you should discuss your desire for a massage with your OB/GYN first.

The treatment is done primarily on your side using pillows to provide maximum comfort. During your intake interview, your therapist will propose a customized massage based on your specific problems. Lower back pain, aching joints, swollen feet are all problems that massage can directly help reduce. Indirectly, many mothers experience lower stress levels, better sleep, and even improved digestion.

Post-natal massages can help reduce the temporary stress and anxiety as well as the residual body aches so many mothers experience after birth. Your positioning will depend on your physical comfort level and may be on your side.
