Prenatal Massage is a relaxing and therapeutic form of massage therapy which incorporates many of the other techniques associated with deep tissue massage, with the difference of using a proper cushioning system. This allows the expectant mother to lie safely on the table and to receive massage therapy in complete comfort. It’s important to seek a certified massage therapist for this treatment, and our therapists at Be Well Boston who provide prenatal massage have completed all of the proper certifications.
Prenatal Massage can also have the following benefits:
- Reduces muscular pain and strain from changes occurring in the body
- Contributes to developing greater flexibility and the body awareness necessary to actively participate in the birth process
- Reduces the negative effects of changes to the circulatory system, including edema, varicose veins, and changes in blood pressure
- Promotes relaxation, and helps with transitions through emotional support and physical nurturing
