Pregnancy can be the most wonderful time in a woman’s life but it is not free from muscle aches and pain. Many pregnant women will experience low back, leg and foot pain as well as difficulty sleeping and getting enough rest. A massage at this time can be just the answer. At Essential Massage we offer a Body Support Cushion that can allow a pregnant woman to lie comfortably and safely on her abdomen during the prone portion of the massage. Our massage tables also have adjusting head and knee portions so that the pregnant woman can lie comfortably on her back without lumbar strain or pressure on the aorta from the baby.
So for pain relief or just some much needed rest and relaxation a massage may just be the perfect gift to yourself during this special time.
Make sure to check with your physician prior to scheduling your appointment to ask about any risk factors that may require you to put off your massage until after the baby is born.
