Pregnancy is an area of life that can bring great joy along with great discomfort. The body goes on an amazing journey of growing another life inside of itself and constantly going through changes for roughly nine months. Many pregnant women find themselves experiencing different aches and pains within their bodies that they just can’t seem to get relief from naturally on their own. A great way to find that relief is with a prenatal massage. Prenatal massages are a great way to reduce pain in a comfortable environment, while feeling pampered.
What to expect during your prenatal massage experience
Prenatal massages are not like any other massage offered, because they are designed especially for expectant mothers. While prenatal massages are not recommended during the first trimester of pregnancy, they are recommended during the second and third trimester. Ultimately, the goal is to make the expectant mother feel more relaxed and stress free, but a prenatal massage can offer so much more. Many women complain of problems with swelling and posture during pregnancy, a prenatal massage can help alleviate these symptoms. Not only is a prenatal massage a great way to pamper your body, but it in turn gives your mind time to relax and rest from all of the growing thoughts of becoming a mother.
To start your massage off, you will have a conversation with your massage therapist about any discomforts or concerns you may be having. From there, a comfortable position will be found for you, most likely lying on your side with pillows for support. Gentle pressure will be exerted by the massage therapist to achieve the goal of making your body feel better. No oils or heat packs of any kind are used during a prenatal massage due to the delicate nature of the body during pregnancy.
