Looking for pregnancy massage in Ellicott City? Wondering how it can help? Getting regular massages can help with the many physical, mental and emotional changes a woman goes through during her pregnancy. Because of the special needs of a pregnant client, it is important to find a therapist who is certified in prenatal massage. At Ellicott City Massage Therapy, our therapists have completed extra training and certifications in this area and know how to best position a mom-to-be for maximum safety and comfort.
Low back pain is one of the primary complaints we hear about from our pregnant clients. This is due mostly to the changing posture of the mother. As the weight in the front of the body increases, the low back typically gets a bit "crunched" in an attempt to compensate for that change. We can help with that and also provide some education on the right way to stand to alleviate some of that pressure.
Some of the benefits of massage during pregnancy include:
- decreased lower back and hip pain
- suppression of the "stress" hormones
- relief of minor aches and pains associated with pregnancy
- better sleep the night following a massage
- relief of pregnancy related swelling in lower legs and arms
- prevention of calf cramps
Massage is a wonderful, natural tool to help a woman deal with the amazing (though frequently challenging!) changes she is going through. Self-care is a MUST during pregnancy, and getting a massage is a great first step.
