Prenatal Massage


Carrying a child is one of the most taxing things on your body.   Massage during pregnancy not only makes a woman feel pampered but offers undeniable physical benefits as well.  Massage can relieve fatigue, enhance sleep, and calm an active baby.  Massage is also a great way to relieve everyday tension and the general aches and pains your body is suffering.  It stimulates your lymphatic system, increasing immunity and the removal of excess toxins, while also stabilizing hormonal levels and balancing the glandular system.  During the entire term of the pregnancy, massage can stimulate blood flow, which may assist in the prevention of anemia.  An increase in muscle tone and flexibility will occur alleviating leg craps and muscle spasms.  Benefits of massage during pregnancy include:

First Trimester

  • Relieve headaches

  • Help with morning sickness

  • reduce fatigue

Second Trimester

  • Alleviate backaches

  • Relieve leg cramps


Third Trimester

  • Reduce swelling/edema

  • Relieve pain from varicosities and sciatica

  • Enhance sleep

  • Prepare pelvic muscles for birth process 

While pregnancy massage can be performed side lying, our therapists have a special massage table with a hole cut-out which gently supports your belly, allowing your back muscles to fully relax so you can get the maximum benefit from your massage.  At your request, we can also incorporate essential oils into the massage such as lavender oil to relieve nausea, headaches, and constipation.  Talk with your therapist about other essential oils that can support a healthy pregnancy as well as specific oils to avoid.

Our therapists are certified to perform prenatal massages.  If you doctor has classified your pregnancy as "high risk", please speak with your therapist to discuss possible risks.  We may want to reach out to your health care provider to ensure you get the best coordinated care possible.
