Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage

 

Prenatal massage is one of the more popular types of massage for obvious reasons. When you are pregnant, you are uncomfortable. It is a fact. You are growing another human inside of you. For this to happen all sorts of things are shifting in your body. Add to that the additional weight pulling your body forward and you have a recipe for back pain. If you have made it through pregnancy without back pain, consider yourself extremely lucky.

This is why prenatal massage is so popular. The relief that a massage can give to an expecting mother is exceptional. Not to mention that dozens of studies have been done to show health benefits to your baby and to you through minimizing stress during your pregnancy.

How often should I get a massage during my pregnancy?

Getting consistent massage throughout your pregnancy has been proven to help reduce the amount of pain and stress on the body. This also prepares your body for the labor and delivery, which studies say helps the duration of your labor.

Weeks 8 – 28 If you are having a normal pregnancy with no major complications you will want to come see us once a month. Of course if you have a lot of pain or muscle tension you can always come in more often. Your therapist will work closely with you to figure out what would be best for your specific needs.

Weeks 29 – 36 Because the baby is growing and adding more pressure on your body you will want to come in every 2 weeks to relieve that added tension.

Weeks 37 – Labor you will want to come in weekly. This will help your body relax and get ready for the labor and delivery of your baby.

During Labor – We have therapists who have been trained on how to best help you relax during your labor. It is up to you to decide at what point you would like us to come and massage you. Ask your therapist for more details.

Postpartum – As long as you didn’t have any complications with your labor and delivery you can come in for a massage as soon as you are released from the hospital. If you have had a C-section or other various complications you will need a doctor’s release before coming in. Our therapists have had extensive training to work on the abdominals and scar tissue from C-section.

Best massage from Jessica! Thank you soooo much!
Response from the owner: We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your session with our new therapist Jessica. She is going to be a great addition to our team. Thank you for the review.
A girlfriend highly recommended Kayla to me and she was so right! Kayla is amazing. I was struggling with leg problems and having a hard time getting anything done at work & home. Kayla is great at knowing where to work, the correct pressure for true healing and she has changed my body and made it so I can have a much more active lifestyle. I have been to many massage therapists and Kayla is by far the best with the longest lasting results. Huge thanks to Kayla! I will be a repeat customer!
Response from the owner: We love to hear that Kayla was listening to you and what your body needed for each session. It is wonderful when you find a therapist that is a great match for your body and style. Thank you for the feedback. We look forward to seeing you in the office again soon.
We got a couples massage and I was with Kayla— SO INCREDIBLE!!! She focused on areas that I said I’d like worked on and gave me such a relaxing experience. Kayla also gave me tips for how to stretch/care to help my back pain. Will definitely be returning!!
Response from the owner: Aubrey, We are delighted to hear that Kayla to the time after the massage to show you stretches that you could do at home to prolong the effects of the massage. Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you again.
This was my first ever massage and I didn’t really know what to expect, but Kelsey did an outstanding job!!! I’m so relaxed right now I’m legitimately wondering if I should wait a minute to get more alert/awake before I drive home
Response from the owner: Grant,We are happy to hear you enjoyed your session with Kelsey. We do recommend that each client drink a full glass of water before they leave the building, this will help in waking you up a bit.
