Pre Natal and Post Natal Massage Therapy

Prenatal Massage Therapy reduces stress by alleviating tension build-up, decreases swelling in the extremities and joints improving circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid, while also relieving aches and pains in muscles and joints. A popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for regulation of hormones and chemical balancing, back pain, and when choices for pain and hormone regulation, such as Rx's, are often limited. 

*Benefits of Pre Natal Massage Therapy -

Prenatal Massage Therapy during pregnancy is an absolute complementary choice for Prenatal care. Prenatal and Postnatal Massage Therapy is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Prenatal Massage Therapy alleviates many of the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as back pain, neck stiffness, cramps, headaches and swelling.

In addition, Prenatal Massage during pregnancy for women reduces the tension caused by the load placed on the weight-bearing joints, encourages lymphatic and blood circulation, helps relax nervous tension and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

During The Prenatal Massage

At Stone Medical Group, our Holistic Medical Professionals and Certified Massage Therapists take the extra time and care to ensure our Prenatal Massage clients are as comfortable as possible. We use Lateral Recumbent, or side-lying, positioning with supportive, soft cushions which are used to alleviate the extra strain on the weight-load bearing joints such as the hips, low back and lower extremities.

Prenatal Massage Therapy for pregnant women offer a number of benefits and is always a good idea to discuss with your Holistic Medical Professional Massage Therapist any everyday symptoms you'd like to see be alleviated. These might include the following:

  • Headaches can be relieved by focusing certain techniques to the soft and connective tissues of the head, neck, shoulders and upper back. In addition, maintaining optimal levels of "feel good" hormones and relief through massage reduces the chances of migraines and/or tension headaches by relaxing trigger points, muscle spasms and chronic tension build-up.
  • Muscle tension created by carrying the extra load of a baby can be relieved by encouraging blood flow and minimizing restrictions. This provides tissues with more nutrient-rich oxygenated blood and also increases the flow of lymphatic fluid, which encourage pinocytosis and phagocytosis that eliminate toxins and metabolic waste.
  • Fatigue, backaches, leg cramps and swelling can all be relieved through various types of Prenatal Massage Techniques for pregnant women.
  • The ordinary aches and pains of pregnancy are countered by the release of serotonin, your body's natural anti-pain chemical, which can be stimulated by Prenatal Massage.

While a Prenatal Massage can't promise that your newborn won't cry once through the night, it can provide you with a better night's rest for both during pregnancy and afterwards. Regular Prenatal Massage therapy not only helps wipe away anxiety and discomfort but, also increases relaxation as well. This can ultimately lead to improved sleeping patterns.

In addition, the serotonin, endorphins and dopamine released by your body due to Prenatal Massage provide a regulation mechanism which help supply those natural chemicals. "Prenatal Massage is very effective tool at alleviating stress and unwanted tension allowing one to sleep better, deeper, longer with a higher quality of sleep," says Stone Medical Group's President, Patrick Stone, H.H.P., C.M.T.

Women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before beginning one of our Prenatal Massage Therapy programs. If you experience discomfort at any time during the Prenatal Massage, tell your Holistic Medical Professional Massage Therapist immediately.
