What is Prenatal Massage?

Prenatal massage is a therapeutic bodywork that centers on the mother-to-be’s special needs as her body passes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. This enhances muscle and joint function increases circulation and general body tone and soothes mental and physical exhaustion. Recent research suggests massage therapy may provide benefits throughout a women’s pregnancy as well as during labor, childbirth, and postpartum. Prenatal massage may include the baby’s brief “massage” during the final weeks of pregnancy and the unborn baby will respond to the stimuli. Additionally, massage may have a role in reducing pain intensity, increasing a women’s sense of control, and improving satisfaction with the childbirth experience. Generally, this is intended for those who undergo a no-risk pregnancy.

Benefits of Prenatal massage

Two key benefits of prenatal massage are:

Improvement of nerve pain – During late pregnancy, the uterus rests on pelvic floor muscles and lower back causing sciatica. This is when tension on the upper and lower leg muscles places pressure on nearby nerves and causes them to swell. Massage therapy can help alleviate muscle tension, which in effect decreases nerve swelling and inflammation, and soothes sciatic nerve pain.

Reduction of Swelling – Due to decreased circulation and increased pressure on the main blood vessels caused by the heavy uterus, joints in the body begin to swell during pregnancy. Massage therapy helps decrease fluid accumulation in swollen joints and aid to increase the absorption of tissue wastes generated by the lymph system of the body, decreasing swelling and pain as a result.

Some other benefits of prenatal massage include:

  • Stress Reduction
  • Enhance Muscle Tone,
  • Stimulate Mind,
  • Increase Circulation in Body
  • Reduced back pain
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Reduced edema
  • Improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles
  • Better Sleep

During Massage

The massage will focus on addressing the special needs of expecting women. Specially-designed cushions and side-lying postures are used to prevent putting pressure on the abdomen.

Naturally Zuri Massage is the best massage I’ve received in a long time. She attends to all your concerns and trust me you’ll be feeling brand new after! Highly Recommend her! You won’t be disappointed and definitely returning when I have the chance.

I had an amazing Himalayan Salt Stone massage. I was deeply relaxed. Kerryann did a fantastic job on my back. She focused on the areas where I was tight and applied the right amount of pressure. Best massage I’ve received ever!!! She’s really good at what she does.

Great massage service. Clean and safe environment, which allows me to enjoy the service with no worries! Definitely going back.

Kerryann is one of the best massage therapists I have ever had! From the first session I had with her, I have not seen any other therapist because it just won’t be the same. The moment her hand touches my back, I fall asleep immediately. My favorite session is the Himalayan Hot Stone, definitely a must try!!

Every ache and tight area was given attention. Enjoying the combo of Himalayan salt stones, CBD, and aromatherapy benefits, made an unforgettable experience! Just what I needed.

All of the above and then some! I have definitely shared this experience with all my Girltrek sisters via txt and on social media as well. Hope to experience your services soon.

Kerryann has a calm and lovely office and a nice massage room with relaxing sounds/music. She definitely worked out more knots and tightness than I even knew I had. I could feel a big shift in my sleep (less restlessness, physically more relaxed, and deeper states) for a few days afterwards. Worth a visit!

I have been going for over a month and I very satisfied with the sessions. Would and will be recommending to my friends.
