Details

What is a prenatal massage?

Pregnancy can take a significant toll on the body and on your overall health, with both increasing weight and hormonal changes contributing to aches and strains that can interfere with comfortable daily living. Headache, back ache, leg cramps, swelling (edema) and joint pain are all common issues that develop during pregnancy, frequently interfering with sleep as well as decreasing your quality of life. Prenatal massage includes special techniques to help reduce those stresses and strains by relaxing cramped muscles and promoting better circulation.

What happens during a prenatal massage?

At the start of your session, you'll have a chance to describe the specific symptoms you're experiencing so your massage can be focused on your needs. During the massage, special cushions, wedges and bolsters will be used to support your body and accommodate your body's changing shape. Techniques like reflexology Swedish massage and other approaches will be used, depending on your symptoms and your treatment goals.

How can massage help me following birth?

Being a mom is no easy task, and it's not uncommon for every day stresses to cause muscle stiffness, aches and pains. Having routine massage treatments can help keep your body strong and supple by relaxing cramped muscles and promoting better circulation. Plus, massage right after pregnancy can help reduce the buildup of fluids that can cause swelling and discomfort while also helping promote healthy levels of “feel good” natural chemicals like serotonin to help banish the “baby blues.”

Does Bebé PT offer massage for women who aren't pregnant?

Yes, Bebé PT offers a broad array of massage services to help women relieve stress and promote overall wellness throughout their child-bearing years.
