Prenatal massage can be an integral tool in reducing pain and discomfort for expecting mothers, and offers a natural way to help manage pain during pregnancy. It can also help reduce stress and has been shown to help relax both mother and child, while relieving a variety of pregnancy symptoms including:
Joint Pain and Stiffness
Neck and Back Pain
By encouraging positive blood flow and circulation, it can also help re-regulate hormones released during pregnancy. Massage helps bring the body back into its natural physical and chemical balance, and in the process can help decrease the symptoms of depression and anxiety, and improving your overall mood and feelings of well-being for both you and your baby.
Prenatal massage is a very delicate treatment, and should ONLY be performed by a trained and experienced prenatal massage therapist. Not every massage therapist is trained in prenatal care, and only those with the appropriate training should touch you and your baby. All of the providers at 3D Wellness who offer prenatal massage therapy have taken advanced training in the treatment and are certified to perform prenatal massage.
