PREGNANCY FULL BODY MASSAGE
Pregnancy massage is a type of remedial treatment that is adapted to suit the specific needs of expectant moms and is most beneficial to both mom and baby. Throughout pregnancy, a women's body undergoes many physical changes. Massage can help to eliminate and relieve some of the complaints that moms can experience through different stages of pregnancy.
When you’re looking for relief from sore muscles and swollen joints during pregnancy (and trust us, we know that is a common occurrence), look to massage! Not only will it relax your muscles and feel amazing, but it also comes with multiple health benefits.
When your feet, legs, and hands start swelling during pregnancy, it is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure on the major blood vessels. Massage can help stimulate the soft tissue, move the extra fluid, and reduce the swelling, leaving you feeling more comfortable.
Relieve Lower Back Pain
Pregnancy massage improves lower back pain including sciatic nerve pain by addressing the tight muscles in the affected area. Prenatal massage increases blood flow and helps release the tension that can be brought on naturally by pregnancy.
Getting good quality sleep becomes harder and harder as your pregnancy progresses. Prenatal massage relaxes the nervous system and releases feel-good hormones. This will leave you more relaxed and let you sleep better. That is something we all need!
Prepare Your Body for Labor and Birth
Pregnancy Massage can help you have an easier delivery, not only because it can reduce your overall stress level but also because of how well it can keep your muscles toned and relaxed in advance of the start of labor. Studies show that women reportedly had shorter hospital stays, shorter labors, and less incidence of post-natal depression when receiving massages.
Relieve Pain Naturally
Prenatal massage offers a natural, safe, drug-free alternative for pain relief. This is beneficial since the use of medications is limited during pregnancy for the safety of your baby. The increased blood flow to your tissues and the relaxation your body will experience during and after a session can significantly alleviate many of the common discomforts of pregnancy.
PREGNANCY FACIAL MASSAGE
Oxygen facials can increase circulation, promote cellular renewal, and plump out fine lines and wrinkles (in case you need even more plumping!). Hydrating facials use moisture-rich treatments and products to drench pregnancy-parched skin.
Facials are safe for expecting mothers, but not all services that are offered by an aesthetician may be safe. Skin is extra sensitive during pregnancy, so you may need to save the more intense treatments for after your due date.
Massage is generally considered safe in pregnancy. You will need to adjust your position on the massage table. As your belly grows, it’s important not to lie flat on your back for long periods. Lying flat causes the pregnant uterus to compress the large vein in the abdomen. This can make you feel sick or pass out. A professional massage therapist with pregnancy experience will be aware of this and use alternative positions.
PREGNANCY REIKI OR
Reiki supports pregnant women through the ongoing physical, emotional, and spiritual changes of pregnancy; this process helps to prepare them for childbirth. Many moms-to-be report feeling more centered, rested, and grounded after a treatment. This gentle, healing energy can therefore be of great benefit to both the mother and her developing baby.
Reiki during early pregnancy relieves many common discomforts such as exhaustion and nausea. Safe and gentle, Reiki will support the mother's body as she grows and changes, and can give relief to lower back pain, the tension in the neck and shoulders, and insomnia. Relieved of some of the physical and emotional discomforts of pregnancy, the expectant mother will sleep more soundly and will feel more relaxed and connected with her baby.
Reiki can also be used to ease postpartum depression and anxiety. It also promotes physical and emotional healing from a lengthy or traumatic birth. Reiki is also helpful for mothers that have been working through breastfeeding difficulties. It helps ease the stress in both mother and child which promotes many beneficial effects like better milk production and confidence in your ability to nurture your baby and yourself. Reiki can be so relaxing that new moms often drift off to sleep during the session. Baby is welcome to come along for the session too!
