Prenatal Massage, Labor Preparation, & Postpartum Healing

 

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care and postpartum recovery. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. 

 

In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension -- which aids in better sleep -- and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

 

For postpartum healing it balances spikes in hormones triggered after delivery and reduce stress of nursing a newborn with very little sleep.  Ease the kinks, aches and pains of the birth process and restore the hips and pelvis and viscera.

 

Some of the benefits new moms experience:

 

  • Relief of pelvic misalignment and associated connective tissue problems

  • Feeling more centered, grounded and peaceful 

  • Less nursing pains

  • Wrists and carpal tunnel relief

  • Better sleep

  • Rejuvenated, energized, restored

  • More energy to care for the family needs

  • Shoulder and hip alignment

  • Plantar fascia released
