Massage Therapy while Pregnant?!

Did you know that you are able to receive massage therapy in any trimester of pregnancy?

There are a lot of benefits to getting massage therapy starting prenatally, during the pregnancy and through postpartum. 

Massage therapy can help pregnant women with circulation, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, improve postural imbalances, and an overall focus to wellbeing. In addition to massage therapy, our RMT Klara is a lymphedema therapist and can add lymphatic drainage to the treatment if there is any swelling associated with the pregnancy. 

What to expect?

Your massage therapist will sit down with you and talk about your health history and depending on which trimester you are in they will make adjustments and modifications to the treatment. Depending on which trimester you are in, you will be positioned either starting on your stomach or side-lying. The treatment will focus on your therapeutic goals in order to decrease any aches and pains or just a focus on a wellness treatment. 

Typically, week by week the body changes with the pregnancy and massage therapy can help as a maintenance program during your pregnancy and beyond. 

The Protect Maternity Belt is a support belt which is aimed at reducing back pain during pregnancy. 

Details:

  • Provides excellent support
  • Adjustable tension straps allow variable pressure for additional stability
  • Special back panel design for extra support that prevents rollover
  • Fully adjustable and easy to fasten
  • Comfortable microfiber construction ensures all day comfort
