Massage Therapy for the expecting mother requires proper bolstering and positioning equipment as well as an experienced massage therapist who is aware of positioning restrictions during the various phases of pregnancy. During pregnancy, there is a significant increase in the demand on the musculoskeletal system from the excess weight and altered center of gravity. This can often lead to low back pain among other muscular stresses and strains.
There is a postnatal recovery period where the new mother must recover from the end of pregnancy through delivery. Massage therapy has been demonstrated to relieve postnatal pain and stress and facilitate the return to a full recovery of strength and flexibility.
We are fortunate to have an experienced massage therapist on staff who is certified in the treatment of prenatal and postnatal mothers.
