What is pre-natal massage?
Pre-natal massage is a therapy tailored for the expectant mother’s needs.
How is pregnancy massage different from regular massage?
The mother’s body must be in proper position and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. Proper position ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby.
Also, some massage techniques, such as deep tissue work, cannot be used. Certain areas of the body will be avoided.
What are the benefits of pregnancy massage?
Pre-natal massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints.
It’s a popular therapy for back pain, when choices for pain relief are often limited.
Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can provide comfort and support during this time.
Massage therapy has been found to reduce anxiety and depression.
At Radius Clinic our masseurs are trained in pre-natal massage and offer you the very best of care at this special time.
Many massage therapists do not recommend massage in the first trimester.
Also, women with certain health conditions which lead to a high risk pregnancy may need to check with their doctor to see if massage is suitable.
