Congratulations! You are expecting.
Some of our Registered Massage Therapists have special training along with years of experience and can provide the most effective and beneficial Massage Therapy treatments for you and subsequently, your baby.
With pregnancy, changes to your body are inevitable and are often accompanied by discomfort.
As your baby develops, it changes your center of gravity which results in the pushing and pulling on many tissues.
Our Registered Massage Therapists can address these concerns and help you be as comfortable as possible as your body goes through these changes.
Studies have shown that Massage Therapy is not only beneficial to the expectant mother, but it is healthy for your baby as well.
Quite simply, when the expectant mother feels well and is pain-free, these benefits are felt and positively affect your child.
In addition to the overall benefit to the mother and child, there is also evidence that Massage Therapy has positive effects on the labour and birthing process by:
– decreased pain in all stages of labour
– reducing the mother’s stress and anxiety
– increase the quality of your experience of the childbirth experience
Our Massage therapist will use ergonomic cushions and supports along with performing some or all of your massage treatments in side-lying positions, to ensure your safety and comfort during your Massage Therapy treatments.
We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will complement the care you are receiving from you other health care providers and we will be happy to communicate with them if needed.
