Expectant mothers can have a smooth pregnancy experience with the help of a relaxing prenatal massage. At Skin Health Medi-Spa, we have a team of massage professionals who can help relieve your stress and discomfort and improve your overall wellness during this exciting period in your life. 

Benefits of Getting A Prenatal Massage Therapy 

The second and third trimesters of the pregnancy period bring a lot of changes in a soon-to-be mom’s body. As the baby grows, your uterus also expands which can cause chronic pain, backaches, stress, leg cramps, swelling, and a stiff neck. 

A prenatal massage is a specialized form of manual manipulation therapy designed to provide relaxation and relieve the symptoms associated with pregnancy. It’s usually performed by a licensed massage therapist who’s knowledgeable in the latest techniques for prenatal comfort.  It offers several benefits such as: 

  • Helps reduce pressure on the pelvic floor and lower back muscles that support the uterus
  • Eases inflammation on the weight-bearing joints and relieves pain in the surrounding area
  • Improves blood circulation to deliver more nutrients and oxygen to the baby 
  • Enhances your overall mood and improves sleep
  • Relieves pregnancy headaches and helps stabilize your hormones
  • May also reduce complications during birth and lead to less painful labor

How Is A Prenatal Massage Different From Other Massage Services

One of the biggest differences with prenatal massage is that the client doesn’t lay on the front or back. During the session, the mother is asked to lie on the side with support pillows and cushions. The therapist also focuses on applying minimal pressure to the body while avoiding certain points that may induce discomfort.

A prenatal massage also mainly uses the Swedish massage technique where long, gentle strokes are used to relieve joint and muscle tension. Other techniques such as deep tissue massage aren’t recommended since they may be harmful to the mother and baby.

FAQs About Prenatal Massage 

Q: Can I schedule a prenatal massage during the first trimester?

A: While you can get a massage at any stage of pregnancy, it’s ideally recommended to get them during the second and third trimesters. Meanwhile, other forms of therapeutic spa treatment such as hot stone massage and deep tissue massage are generally avoided in pregnant women. 

Q: Is it safe?

A: Yes, a prenatal massage is generally safe and it’s a good treatment for promoting overall comfort and health during pregnancy. Our massage services are provided by certified therapists so you’ll receive the best care possible. We advise contacting your OB doctor before coming in for your massage session. 

Q: How often do you need a prenatal massage?

A: It’s recommended to get a prenatal massage once a month until the end of your second trimester, and 2 to 3 times during your third trimester to help prepare the body for labor. You can always consult with your doctor to check how many times you’ll need the massage.
