As a Prenatal Massage Therapist
I use manual techniques combined with in-depth knowledge of prenatal anatomy and physiology to bring about pain relief, balancing of the pelvic structure to encourage proper positioning for baby's birth and lymphatic drainage to encourage proper fluid movement to avoid excess swelling.
What to expect
Before treatment begins we will discuss your goals for the treatment and make sure you feel comfortable with lying on the table. I offer a special body cushion that allows pregnant people lie face down safely and comfortably. The cushions adjust to accommodate all different bodies and stages of pregnancy. Another option would be side lying with fully supportive cushions. If at any time you feel uncomfortable or would like to change your position you are more than welcome to do so, your comfort and safety is my top priority. If during your treatment you are required to lie on your back, a series of comfortable supports will be used to lie in a semi reclined position so that you are not spending any amount of time flat on your back.
