Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage is an excellent way to help Mommy relax, de-stress and connect with her baby. The best time for pregnancy massage is during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters as the baby and placenta becomes more developed. Pregnancy massage may help to create a more nurturing environment and enhanced placental function for the baby by increasing the hormone prolactin. It can help to create better posture for mommy by relieving muscle aches and strains commonly associated with pregnancy as well as mommy’s general lifestyle and state of health and wellness. Extra care is taken to create optimal positioning for mommy-to-be such as sidelying. The use of certain essential oils and specific acupressure points, and stretching are also carefully monitored to avoid any contraindications to pregnancy. As with all forms of massage, pregnancy massage is also aimed increasing circulation flow to the heart, transporting nutrients throughout the body, stretching and smoothing muscle bellies and their attachments, and creating better harmony among digestive, respiratory, endocrine (hormonal), integumentary (skin), urinary, reproductive, musculoskeletal, lymphatic and nervous systems as well as the sinuses.

Energy Medicine and Reiki are also wonderful ways to relax and promote better health and wellness in mommy and baby.
