What is Pregnancy Massage?
Pregnancy Massage shares many of the goals of regular massage – to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it’s also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in Pregnancy Massage adjust their techniques accordingly.
How Can Pregnancy Massage Help You?
The therapeutic benefits of massage for pregnant women may help people who suffer from low back pain and for those with chronic headaches, it may decrease stress and promote relaxation, helping you cope with discomfort.
Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you’re carrying and you may find you’ve got an aching lower back.
A trained prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman’s sore spots are likely to be and may be able to provide some relief. (They’ll also know which areas and techniques to avoid.) Still, it’s important to communicate with your RMT and tell them where you need attention. Let the RMT know right away if anything during the massage – including your positioning – is causing you any discomfort.
