Prenatal Massage

Bodywork during pregnancy can address both the well-being of the mother and baby along with any pain the mother may be experiencing as a result of her changing body.  Through my training with Kate Jordan in Bodywork for the Childbearing Year, I can provide a session that is not only safe and comfortable, but will also help to effectively relieve any pregnancy specific pain you may be experiencing.  Research has shown that massage during pregnancy may lead to

 

  • Decreased stress hormones

  • Decreased anxiety and depression

  • Decreased edema in lower legs

  • Decreased back pain

  • Decreased leg pain

  • Decreased rate of prematurity

  • Decreased length of labor

  • Decreased labor pain

  • Decreased rate of C-section

 

Postpartum bodywork promotes the restoration of the pelvis, legs, and abdomen, along with any other discomforts you may be experiencing. Sessions can be 30 to 90 minutes.
