Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage

Receiving a massage during your pregnancy can be a great way to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and provide a sense of overall wellness. The things you can do during pregnancy can be severely restricted, but massage is a healthy and safe way to stay comfortable and stress-free during your pregnancy.

Prenatal massage can help relax your nerves and ease the anxiety and depression that can sometimes go along with hormonal changes. In addition to improving your outlook, prenatal massage can also help soothe all the new aches and pains that go along with pregnancy. This includes stiff back, headaches, swelling, leg cramps, and even sciatica problems.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage

There are a number of benefits of receiving a prenatal massage. Some of these can include:

  • Relief of pregnancy headaches by receiving a massage focused on the shoulders, neck, and head
  • Maintaining stress relief through massage
  • Carrying the extra weight of pregnancy can cause tension in the muscles, which can be relieved through massage
  • Prenatal massage can help soothe backaches, swelling, and leg cramps
  • Release of endorphins and serotonin, the “feel-good” hormones secreted during a massage can also act as natural pain relievers

It’s true that your life will change when your child is born. This is why it’s so important to rest up, relax, and feel completely emotionally ready for the birth of your baby. Receiving a regular prenatal massage here at Pathway Massage can help decrease your anxiety and discomfort while promoting relaxation and good sleep. Please speak with your OB/GYN before receiving a prenatal massage. Our priorities are your health and that of your baby’s, so it’s important to us that we make sure you don’t have any restrictions before you receive your massage.
