PREGNANCY MASSAGE / PRENATAL MASSAGE
at Ravenswood Chiropractic in Andersonville
Prenatal massage helps to address the many musculoskeletal changes that occur in the body during pregnancy. Like other massage techniques, Prenatal Massage can relax tired, cramping, and overstretched muscles, relieve stress and routine pregnancy-related discomforts, help to regulate blood pressure and hypertension, promote healthy circulation and detoxification of tissue, and improve posture, range of motion, and well-being.
IMPROVE LABOR OUTCOME
Many expectant moms indicate that receiving prenatal massage therapy helped their labor outcome and eased labor pain by keeping muscles relaxed and pliable throughout pregnancy.
IN EXPERT HANDS
Your massage therapist has received additional training in prenatal massage and uses modified techniques especially designed for pregnancy related issues. Patients are specially positioned on the table with the safety and comfort of baby and mom carefully attended to.
While prenatal massage is considered safe for expectant moms with no complications, if you are experiencing complications or suspect that you are, then tell your therapist before receiving therapy, we encourage expectant mothers to provide us with a doctor’s note or midwife’s note that they know you are receiving prenatal massage therapy and you have no contraindications to receive it, such as blood clots, pre-eclampsia, fever, or risk for pre-term labor. If you have questions regarding the safety of prenatal massage, please speak with your doctor or midwife. Some techniques and areas such as the ankle-area are avoided during pre-natal massage.
