Massage therapy while pregnant is a wonderful way to reduce stress, improve circulation, decrease pain and stiffness, and improve swelling. Pregnancy is a trying time for your body, and practically every muscle, joint, bone, and organ is feeling the strain. Stopping in to Active Life Chiropractic for a pregnancy massage might just be one of the best ways to help yourself feel more at ease and prepare your body for the birth of your child.
You may be wondering how you can get a massage while pregnant, but we assure you your utmost safety and comfort are our priorities. During the massage, we will have you lie on your side and can provide pillows or cushioning to support you and alleviate any strain. Depending on your specific requests, our massage therapist may incorporate several massage techniques, including reflexology, deep tissue, and Swedish massage.
Your safety is always our priority, and we recommend speaking with your doctor or midwife before coming in for a massage if you have a high-risk pregnancy. Depending on the reason for the high-risk, your doctor may advise you to avoid massage therapy while pregnant. If you have questions about pregnancy massage, we are always happy to answer them.
