“I was pregnant with twins, so my aches and pains came quicker than my first pregnancy. Because her massages were giving me so much relief, I soon started going ever other week and during the last month of my pregnancy, I went every week. I now have my twin boys and I am still continuing my massages and loving every minute!”~ Kristie
Prenatal (Pregnancy) Massage Des Moines
Prenatal massage therapy can reduce anxiety, relieve muscle aches, and improve labor. Swelling of joints, hormone alterations, and back pain can be reduced with prenatal massage techniques.
A pregnancy table allows clients to lay face down; unfortunately, the "belly bucket" doesn't fit every woman's belly and may cause strain to the ligaments. Therefore, Renee only works using the side lying and seated techniques with lots of pillows. The side lying technique allows for a safer, more effective pre-natal massage, more access to the low back and hip area, providing relief and comfort to the pregnant client.
Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage is an ideal way to reduce fatigue, improve circulation, increase energy, and reduce the muscle pain and joint stiffness that often accompany the changes occurring in the body during pregnancy.
Before scheduling a pregnancy massage appointment ask your doctor about okaying the pregnancy massage. It's best to keep your doctor informed as he/she knows more about your health and to ensure safety for you and your baby. Most likely it is ok, however, it is for you and your babies best interest.
