What is prenatal massage?
Massage for pregnant women is also used to reduce stress on weight bearing joints. It helps with blood and lymph circulation, relaxes nervous tensions which in turn helps aid better sleep, and can possibly help with symptoms of depression and anxiety caused by hormonal changes during and after pregnancy.
During the prenatal massage sideline positioning with supportive, soft cushions are used to alleviate the extra strain on the lower back and pelvic areas when the pressure of massage techniques are applied.
Through the second trimester, you may prefer to lie on your back with small, cushioned wedge placed under both knees. Depending on where you are in your pregnancy, your licensed massage therapist can provide a pregnancy pillow if you wish to lie face down.
