There are many benefits to receiving massage therapy throughout your pregnancy as well as postpartum. Throughout pregnancy, muscles and tendons become strained due to changes throughout the body caused by increased weight and a shifted center of gravity. Prenatal massage therapy helps to relieve stress placed on soft tissue as well as reduce leg cramps (commonly associated with pregnancy), increase circulation, assist in moving lymphatic fluid, as well as aiding to relax the body.
Your therapist will work alongside you to create a treatment plan. Positioning throughout treatments will change to accommodate your body changes with your comfort always in consideration.
