Pregnancy is a wonderful, special time with its own joys and its own issues. The goal of prenatal massage is to relax you and address any areas of tension, discomfort and pain you may be experiencing. Because of the hormonal changes many women experience nausea, digestive problems and fatigue during pregnancy. "Baby anxiety", stress and sometimes depression can also be factors that affects the body and mind of the mother.

Back pain is a common issue as pregnancy progresses due to the change in their body alignment as the baby grows and the mother's posture changes. Sometimes this is also accompanied by hip pain, sciatic pain or discomfort. Fluid retention and and swelling in the legs and feet is also common in the last stages of pregancy.

Gentle therapeutic penatal massage can address these discomforts and help you feel better. Because of the endorphins that are released during massage, the baby will experience positive benefits also. Prenatal massage can help release the tension and pain in the muscles as well as gently release the discomfort of excess fluids in the hands and feet.

Important Notes about Receiving Massage While Pregnant:

  • Prenatal Massage can be done anytime after the 1st trimester of pregnancy.

  • If you are pregnant and in your 2nd or 3rd trimester, you must have a written note from your doctor, OB/GYN, health care professional or certified midwife in order for you to have a massage session. You doctor or certified midwife knows your health history, your situation and how your pregnancy is progressing and will determine if gentle therapeutic prenatal massage is beneficial for you. In some cases, massage may not be beneficial during pregnancy. Threre are prenatal conditions that require medical care, close monitoring and oftentimes complete bedrest is prescribed by your doctor. Prenatal massage may not be allowed by your doctor / midwife in the case of high-risk pregnancy or other complications including abnormal high blood pressure, pre-clampsia, mislocated placenta (placenta previa) or premature detachment of the placenta from the uterus (placental abruption) as well as others.

  • After you receive the ok from your medical professional for prenatal massage, then we can determine what therapies will assist you to feel better and address any pain or discomforts you have. If you have never had a professional massage - please read the New Client Information page so you know what to expect in a massage therapy session. Call me at 970-204-1794 with any questions you have and to schedule an appointment.

  • In addition, there are special considerations for you, the mother-to-be. The massage table is very comfy and I provide extra pillows to make you comfortable in a side position since you cannot lay on your stomach. My goal is to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the session so that you can relax and enjoy the massage experience and gain the full benefits from it for yourself and your baby.

  • You may choose the option of Hot Stone Massage (gentle heat) or Relaxation Massage with nourishing massage oil or lotion. During pregnancy, we only use Therapeutic Lavender essential oil which is safe and gentle and has been used for hundreds of years during pregnancy.  For more information about therapeutic essential oils, please see my aromatherapy website at www.Aromatherapy-News.com. You may also choose not to include Lavender essential oil if you desire.

  • Traditional Reflexology is not done during pregnancy, however I will provide a gentle and helpful massage of your feet and ankles to address any issues of pain and discomfort of fluid retension and swelling.
