Vancouver Prenatal Massage 

RMT Pregnancy Massage – Vancouver – Prenatal Massage Therapy

Downtown Vancouver Pregnancy Massage 

pregnancy-massageEverest Therapeutics has several registered massage therapists who are specially trained in pre and postnatal massage. We have all the correct support cushions and pillows needed to provide a comfortable and proper pre and post pregnancy massage. Our downtown Vancouver RMT’s ensure your comfort and safety is their first priority. Therefore, we recommend that the best time for the expectant mother to have a pregnancy massage is after the first trimester. Also, our pregnancy massage therapists don’t use pregnancy tables that have a hole cut out with a fabric hammock for supporting your belly. These tables seem like the answer to providing prenatal massage, however they can have serious side effects, including undo strain on the uterine and other ligaments of your abdomen. Your pregnancy massage therapist will have you lay on your side on a flat comfy massage table with a body cushion and pillow to provide all the necessary support.

A pregnancy massage session begins with a consultation with an experienced prenatal massage therapist. During the pregnancy massage treatment, the RMT will work on all of the areas that have been giving you pain, but they will avoid working for too long on the areas near the heel and the ankle, because it is known that these areas are thought to be connected to the uterus and the vagina.

Mothers-to-be begin planning for a successful and healthy pregnancy from the very moment they find out they are expecting. The arrival of a new baby is a very exciting time, but it is also a physically and emotionally taxing time for expectant mothers. During the eventful nine months of pregnancy, an expectant mother needs to ensure that she adequately receives a proper balance of nutrition, rest, and exercise. Lacking in any one of these areas can create harmful effects for both mother and baby. Unfortunately, many common discomforts of pregnancy can prevent a mother from meeting the body’s changing needs.

Prenatal Massage Therapy Can Really Make A Positive Difference

Pregnancy massage, or prenatal massage, are specific terms used to describe a therapeutic massage treatment performed by a registered massage therapist, to help alleviate the troublesome symptoms and risks associated with pregnancy, such as:

  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Low back pain
  • Swelling in the extremities
  • Muscle tension
  • Sleep disturbances

How Prenatal Massage Can Help

Studies from the University of Miami, School of Medicine, show that just 20 minutes of pregnancy massage twice a week for five weeks:

  • Diminishes stress hormones in the body
  • Helps regulate mood swings
  • Reduces anxiety and encourages relaxation
  • Helps to relieve stress on the lower back, pelvis, and ankles
  • Improves blood and lymph circulation
  • Reduces swelling and improves baby’s oxygen supply
  • Relaxes muscle knots that cause cramping, tightening, and stiffness
  • Improves muscle and skin tone
  • Assists to promote better sleep patterns

Studies also report that expectant moms who receive regular pregnancy massages may:

  • Experience lower rates of premature birth
  • Have fewer obstetrical complications
  • Birth babies with fewer postnatal complications

During pregnancy, working with one our downtown Vancouver pregnancy massage therapists can help towards ensuring the healthiest and happiest pregnancy possible. The purpose of prenatal massage is to support a healthy, happy mom, and an uncomplicated labour, delivery and recovery.

Post-Natal Massage

massage-prenatal-vancouver-pregnancy-massageIn addition to helping mothers experience a healthy and relaxing pregnancy, massage can also help post partum, as it’s particularly beneficial to returning to an active lifestyle. Massage therapy can help ease the transition from pregnancy to motherhood by offering both physical and emotional boosts. Physically, massage therapy can help to recondition muscles and connective tissues. It is also useful in eliminating excess fluid retention, and improving skin’s elasticity in overstretched areas.

Emotionally, massage therapy is an excellent source of stress relief for new moms. Massage therapy provides relaxation while relieving aching muscles in the shoulders and neck.
