Prenatal Massage in Milton, ON

A necessity for moms-to-be. Reduce discomfort, boost energy, and calm the mind. By enhancing circulation, reducing pressure on the joints, reducing leg swelling, and easing lower back discomfort, this soothing massage can improve your comfort.

Prenatal massage is a form that's comparable to regular massage in that it works to soothe sore places, ease tense muscles, enhance circulation, increase mobility, and just make you feel wonderful.

  • Reduced swelling: Massage can help release fluids and aid healing to reduce inflammation.
  • Alleviated anxiety: Long-lasting relief from anxious feelings and stress due to reduced tension and lower stress hormones.
  • Hormonal balance: It has been demonstrated that prenatal massage increases endorphins and helps balance hormones.
How does prenatal massage therapy work, and is it right for me?

Your centre of gravity changes when you are carrying a baby inside of you, which puts a lot of strain on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Additionally, pregnancy relaxes your ligaments, which makes your pelvic joints less stable. It also alters your posture, which pushes your pelvis forward. You might get lower back pain if you combine these two factors with the additional weight you are carrying. A certified prenatal massage therapist is aware of the typical locations where pregnant women have uncomfortable and swollen regions and may be able to offer some assistance. They will also be aware of the methods and locations to avoid.

As long as your doctor or midwife gives the go-ahead, prenatal massages are safe to get at any stage of pregnancy. Due to the higher chance of miscarriage in the first trimester, some massage therapists won't see pregnant clients until the second trimester. However, there is no proof or reason to think that receiving prenatal massage during the first trimester would increase your chance of miscarriage. At every stage of pregnancy, your massage therapist needs to be able to make you feel at ease. Your painful, swollen breasts may make it uncomfortable to lie facedown right away. And once your tummy has begun to expand, you cannot lie face down on a conventional massage table.

Prenatal and Postnatal Massage Can Provide Pain Relief and Other Benefits

What should I expect from my first prenatal massage therapist visit?

The first thing you should do is talk to your doctor or midwife about whether or not pregnancy massage therapy is right for you. Your massage therapist will spend some time talking to you in order to identify your issues and formulate a plan for your massage treatment. Once this is done, you will be allowed to undress and position yourself in private, laying on your side or back. Once you are comfortable, the therapist will return to administer your massage. They will go over problem areas and apply varied pressure, allowing you to indicate your comfort levels to make sure everything feels right.

After your massage is over, the therapist will go over recommendations for further sessions. Many of the benefits of prenatal massage are not immediate, and multiple sessions are often required to gain the best effect. The therapist might also go over some self-massage techniques that can be safely administered at home to maximize your benefit from the ongoing therapy. It is important to be up front and honest with your therapist so that they can administer your massage safely and effectively. Failure to do so may reduce the effectiveness or increase the risk involved in the massage.

Are there risks associated with visiting prenatal registered massage therapists?

Although prenatal massage is intended for expectant mothers, each woman's pregnancy is unique. The symptoms that each woman may experience must be taken into account, and adjustments can be made to make the massage both safe and comfortable. Contraindications for pregnancy massage include varicose veins and skin irritation which may be exacerbated by massage. Leg massages should not be performed if there is leg edema or visible varicose veins. Your therapist will work with you to ensure that your massage is as comfortable and safe as possible.

A person's blood volume greatly increases during pregnancy, and blood circulation is more sluggish than usual. In order to avoid problems during and after childbirth, anticoagulant levels naturally rise. A pregnant woman has a heightened risk of blood clots due to the changes in her circulatory system. Deep tissue massage and very firm pressure could release a blood clot, leading to risky pregnancy issues. During your visit, it is important that you discuss these potential issues with your therapist so that they can administer your massage safely and effectively.
