Taking care of yourself when you’re carrying a baby is an absolute necessity. We cannot stress enough how important it is to receive regular prenatal massage and other self-care practices during those formative months. Prenatal massage has been proven to aid in the life of an expecting mother. Expecting mothers go through so many changes that make it difficult to sleep, keep food down, and much more.
Benefits of Prenatal Massage:
- Better sleep
- Reduce lower back pain
- Reduce sciatic pain
- Decrease cortisol, the stress hormone
- Increase serotonin and dopamine, the feel good hormones
- Improve mood
When you normally come in for a prenatal massage, you lay on your stomach for us to work your back. Once you get to a certain size as an expecting mother, you obviously can’t do that. We have 2 options for your comfort: prenatal pillows, or side-lying position.
- The prenatal pillows have cut-outs for the stomach to hang down without putting pressure on the baby. Whether you’re pregnant or not, these pillows are so comfortable!
- The side-lying position is just as it sounds: you lay on your side, with a body pillow to cuddle and another pillow to support your head. Either way, we work to ensure your comfort.
Let us ease the tensions that naturally happen while your body transitions for this wonderful miracle.
