Along with the joy of pregnancy come physical and emotional changes like anxiety, stress, fatigue, edema (swelling), sciatica and lower back pain. For thousands of years, massage has been used to ease these, and many other symptoms, facilitating the healthiest, most enjoyable pregnancy possible for both mommy and baby (this makes Daddy happy too!).
Having experienced these symptoms first hand during my pregnancies, I understand what you’re going through. This is a time of great excitement, but also a time where you need support and understanding. I’m here to help with prenatal massage for you and your baby to be.
Did you know?
Regularly scheduled prenatal massage prepares the body for labor, and helps with high-risk pregnancies.
Your pregnancy is over and you are enjoying your newborn baby. An entirely new way of life has emerged for your family. Mommy, you have now entered what is called the recovery phase. You may be feeling depleted & fatigued, muscle soreness and strain, various aches and pains — not to mention the potentially overwhelming emotions caused by the changing hormones in your bloodstream.
Postnatal massage provides physical and emotional nurturing during this pivotal time where mom still needs some extra support. It helps restore the body to pre-pregnancy physiology, and assists in the healing process after childbirth.
Did you know?
Postnatal massage is highly regarded throughout the world for its ability to help women recover from pregnancy and birthing.
During a time when the physical & emotional changes in the expectant mother are so evident, it’s easy for dad to feel left out. He’s experiencing his own emotional and physical stress and it’s important for him to receive prenatal and postnatal massage too!
