Soothing Prenatal Massage in Los Angeles
Growing a small human inside your body is hard work! Expectant Mothers put their bodies through an incredible amount of pain and discomfort to bring a new life into the world. Your feet begin to swell, lower back pain sets in, and stress levels rise as the joyous day approaches.
This treatment can help soothe sore, achy muscles and joints while also relaxing the body during your pregnancy. It is very similar to the bodywork you have had before. The difference is your certified therapist will make adjustments to ensure the comfort and safety of both Mom and baby!
We understand this is a sensitive and beautiful time in your life. Our team of professional therapists is certified to perform prenatal physical therapy and dedicate their energy to providing the best experience possible.
Benefits of Prenatal Massage Therapy
Regular sessions throughout your pregnancy will help with the following:
- Reduce Stress
- Relieve Joint and Muscle Discomfort
- Improve Quality of Sleep
- Hormone Stabilization
- Relieve Nerve Pain
- Soothe Heartburn
- Improve Circulation
- Reduce Swelling
- Alleviate Lower Back Pain
Your massage therapist will use modified Swedish techniques to gently release muscle tension while improving circulation and lymph flow with long gliding strokes. This technique is gentle and functional.
What Should You Expect During Your Session?
During your appointment, your therapist will position you in 2 different ways to accommodate your baby bump and ensure comfortable body alignment.
- You are lying on your back using firm pillows (or wedges) to elevate your back and legs when working on neck and shoulder areas.
- You are lying on your side supported by a full body pillow or a small pillow placed between your knees, depending on your comfort level.
When Should You Start?
We recommended not to start receiving this type of bodywork until you have entered your Second Trimester when the risk of complications is much lower.
This treatment should only be performed by a licensed therapist who is a state-certified in prenatal bodywork practitioner, like every Massage Rx Therapist.
Please speak with your healthcare provider, or midwife, before beginning your Prenatal Physical Therapy if you have any of the following conditions:
- High-risk pregnancy
- Pregnancy Induced Hypertension, or PIH
- Severe swelling, migraines, or high blood pressure
We put your health and safety, above all else.
