What Is a Prenatal Massage & Should You Get One? February 23, 2018

What Is a Prenatal Massage & Should You Get One?, Hempstead, New York

If you’re pregnant, you may be experiencing many aches and pains. From stiff joints and sore muscles to straining tendons and itchy skin, pregnancy isn’t the most comfortable time for some women. Prenatal massages can relieve these irritating symptoms. Plus, it’s a safe, medication-free way to relax. Here is a brief guide to this massage and why you should consider it.

How Prenatal Massage Works

Massage therapists trained in this treatment know how to care for you safely and make sure you’re comfortable during the session. Therapists typically position pregnant women on their side or in a slightly reclined position on their back. Some spas also have specialized padding that lets women enjoy the massage while lying safely face-down—something they may not have been able to do in months. A prenatal massage uses whatever pressure level you prefer on the back and shoulders but is adjusted to be gentle on your torso. 

Why You Should Get One

Prenatal MassagePrenatal massage is effective in treating uncomfortable pregnancy problems in healthy, low-risk women. Tension headaches in the head and neck, as well as muscle tension in the legs and back, can be eased through this massage. Sore tendons can also be made more comfortable through gentle manipulation and promotion of oxygen flow. If you’re experiencing leg cramps and swelling in the feet, prenatal massage will improve the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids to relieve this issue.
