Prenatal Massage is intended to provide nurturing and support for mother and baby during their time of growing together. This offering is a calming side-lying flow to support deep relaxation, tension release and increased circulation. With awareness of the baby, techniques for the hips, glutes and abdominal areas are utilized supporting digestion and an increased flow of nutrients in the body.

Gentle range of motion and stretching movements are used to relieve pressure, ease discomforts and bring balance. This encourages openness and stability as the body is navigating changes with a growing baby. Lymph drainage strokes, craniosacral holds and acupressure techniques are used for additional support. As a time to go inward and connect with your baby, a prenatal session can be a centering part of your pregnancy journey.

The following are benefits and the most common conditions that Prenatal Massage may help address:

  • Immune system strengthening

Prior to the session you will digitally submit a detailed health history form. At the top of our session we will have a conversation reviewing the information gathered and find out how I can best support you. We will discuss several facets of your lifestyle and health in addition to defining any goals and answering any questions you have for me. During the session you dress down to your comfort. You will be supported in a side-lying position with comfy pillows, a sheet and blanket, as needed. The side-lying position helps avoid undue pressure on a growing abdomen and the lower back. With the support of the pillows the hip, knee and ankle are kept on the same level to avoid pulling on the sacroiliac joint and to maximize blood and lymph circulation. A robe is on hand in case you need the restroom during the session.

If the therapist does require credit card information to hold the appointment then that therapist will contact you to get that information so that they can put it securely in Square.

If you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment or do not show up for the appointment then half of the price of the session will be charged to the card on file.

BODY HEAL Therapy is a holistic approach to pain relief. Since the human body moves as a unit, rather than in individual pieces, we often compromise for repetitive patterns and postures with unrelenting tension in other areas that can cause pain. By addressing these patterns, we can go beyond providing temporary help to the area causing discomfort, and instead, treat the root cause with lasting results.
