What to expect during your Prenatal Massage appointment:

If you are experiencing headaches, joint swelling, stiff muscles, backaches, cramping, fatigue or sleep difficulties during pregnancy, a Prenatal Massage is the right service for you.

Your treatment will begin with a short assessment. Your massage therapist will go over your health history and any issues you want to address. You will then be asked to undress to your personal comfort level and lie under the linens on the table.

When you come for your treatment, our primary concern will be the safety of your baby and your comfort. We use bolsters and pillows to ensure your body is properly supported. Frequently, Prenatal Massage is best performed while lying on your side. The modalities your therapist may choose to use are: light to deep pressure techniques, orthopedic massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, soft tissue release, pelvic balancing, advanced neuromuscular techniques, and hydrotherapy.

If your purpose is solely for relaxation, your therapist will focus on delivering a flowing massage with steady pressure throughout your body. You may be asked to breathe deeply, which can help promote relaxation and increase the effectiveness of the massage. Your therapist may also use aromatherapy or other relaxation techniques to help enhance the experience.

After the massage, you may feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist may also provide you with some aftercare advice, such as remedial exercises, stretching or self-massage techniques to help facilitate your rehabilitation and progress. A return date for your treatment plan will also be suggested to keep you on track.

Other things you should know about your Prenatal Massage appointment:

By confirming your Prenatal Massage appointment, you are providing consent for treatment during pregnancy. If at any time you become uncomfortable in any position please let your therapist know so they can realign your body or adjust any bolsters or pillows.

If you’re planning on getting a Prenatal Massage, here are some important things to keep in mind:

  1. Arrive early: It’s a good idea to arrive a few minutes early to your appointment. This will give you time to fill out any necessary paperwork and get settled in before your treatment begins.
  2. Avoid heavy meals: A full stomach can make it harder for you to relax and may interfere with the treatment. However, an empty stomach can leave you light headed. Try to eat a light meal an hour or two before your appointment.
  3. Drink plenty of water: It’s important to stay hydrated before and after your treatment. Drinking plenty of water can help flush out any toxins released and help prevent soreness.
  4. Dress appropriately: Depending on the type of treatment you have scheduled, you may or may not need to undress to some extent. It’s best to wear loose fitting or “athletic” clothing that you are able to move freely in. Your therapist will instruct you on what should be removed to facilitate the best possible treatment. Always undress to your personal comfort level.
  5. Communicate with your therapist: During your appointment, make sure to keep an open dialogue regarding any discomfort or areas of tension you are experiencing. This will help them make adjustments as needed to ensure that you are getting the most benefit from your treatment.
  6. Take it easy after your appointment: It is important to give your body time to rest and recover after treatment. Avoid intense physical activity or exercise immediately after your treatment and allow your body time to relax and recover.
  7. Follow any post-treatment instructions: Your therapist may provide you with specific instructions or stretches to do after the treatment to help with recovery. It is important to follow these instructions to get the greatest overall benefit.

History of Prenatal Massage:

Prenatal Massage has roots in Ayurvedic Medicine – a medicine system that originated in India over 3000 years ago. These medicinal systems are based on the belief that optimal health comes from a proper balance between the mind, body, and spirit. 

Evidence of Prenatal Massage has further been found in many ancient and historical texts worldwide. The idea is that it prepares the mother for childbirth by relieving any ailments or pain caused by pregnancy.
