Prenatal Massage

One of the most beneficial times for a massage is during pregnancy. Massage during pregnancy can have a number of beneficial effects. Studies have shown that prenatal massage can lower anxiety, help decrease back and leg pain, improve sleep, decrease the levels of stress hormones, as well as other benefits.

If you have passed your first trimester of pregnancy, do not have any high risk factors, and your doctor has indicated that it is safe for you to enjoy the benefits of a massage then feel free to request an appointment.

Prenatal massage techniques differ from other types of massage, the modifications Karen employs during her prenatal massage treatments ensure the safety of both the mother and the fetus.

What to expect in a treatment session:

During the one-hour long massage, you will be comfortably positioned on your side with the aid of bolsters and cushions. The session starts with a relaxing head massage and eases in the upper body followed by work on the lower back and sacrum to release some of the pressure in those areas due to the weight of the fetus. Slow, gentle strokes are applied to the legs to ease any edema. The session ends with some gentle energy to connect mother and baby.
