Discomforts of Pregnancy
Your shoulders ache. Your feet are sore. Your lower back feels like it’s been carrying around another human being for the past few months—because well, it has! The discomforts of pregnancy are often overlooked, but when you’re living with them, they can make completing everyday tasks feel almost impossible. If you’re fed up with the constant aches and pains of pregnancy, you may find yourself wondering whether prenatal massage and/or bodywork could offer some relief.
Prenatal massage is a specific type of massage tailored to help relieve the strains and pains caused by pregnancy. Usually, the massage focuses on the areas of the body that are most affected by pregnancy. This includes the lower back, the mid-back, the calves, the feet and even the stomach. Are you having issues with swelling in your extremities? We offer a lymphatic treatment, specifically for pregnancy, to help with that. Is that belly feeling heavy, as you near your last trimester. We offer pregnancy taping, as well, to help alleviate some of that back pain, and to give your belly some support.
