Pregnancy Massage Due Diligence

Pregnancy massage is a fast-growing trend amongst many women. It is said to provide many benefits that can help future mothers along the road. Even practicing therapists who have experienced it during their own pregnancies agree that it significantly enhanced the sense of care they experienced. It also provided them with a great deal of comfort and pain relief they needed during that time.

The female body undergoes significant tension and many stresses upon pregnancy, leading to problems such as anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Massage can actually help counter these factors and place a mother-to-be in the right sort of mental and emotional position. It also reduces the chances of swelling and treats sciatic aches and back and neck pains. If you are considering such a massage, you should take note of the following tips to help you select the best pregnancy massage.

Pregnancy Massage

Specialization and Equipment

Visit or call licensed massage institutions and ask for any members of staff that are specifically trained and experienced in pregnancy you may always look for a licensed therapist who has been trained to work with pregnant women.

Ask what kind of table the massage therapist typically uses. Take a look at the tables and decide if any one of them would be comfortable enough for you. The best pregnancy massage tables have indentations for the belly and the breasts so that women far along in their terms can comfortably enjoy the massage’s benefits.

Jojoba Oil

Next, determine what oils they intend to use. These should be oils of the highest quality and could be unscented. An example of a great oil for this purpose is jojoba oil. This oil can even be used at home and placed upon the belly for a gentle rub going down the sides. Not only is this oil believed to nourish the connection between mother and baby, but also it helps keep the skin well-hydrated. This protects the skin from dryness and also stimulates circulation, which could result in fewer stretch marks in the long-run.

Alternative

As an alternative, you can ask you’re significant other to give you a pregnancy massage or offer one to your wife. This massage can be as simple as rubbing the feet and stroking the belly. It is important to provide as much care and tenderness as possible and to ensure that sound communication takes place. The same applies to professional massages. Always mention if the massage feels painful and if too little or too much pressure is applied.

When seeking a pregnancy massage therapist, never forget to inquire if a doctor’s consent form is necessary. It is generally not required, but there are cases—such as in pregnancies with complications or particular sensitivity—where the consent form may be requested. Consult your doctor too about the risks and benefits of having a pregnancy massage.

Deep tissue massage

Different levels of deep tissue work. We offer pain relief massage which incorporates various techniques that makes deeper work feel better to the client. If you are in pain but have been hurt by a therapist who used intense deep tissue techniques, you won’t get that here. Deep tissue massage is something you have to give your body time to adjust to and if you are experiencing pain or discomfort you NEED the deeper work. We offer a combination massage that combines relaxation and deep tissue and this results in a more soothing session that is still highly effective. More importantly, if we are using a pressure technique, we incorporate different levels of deep tissue according to the client’s tolerance and needs. If you just need to relax, our relaxation massage sessions evoke a state of tranquility, rest, and peace and leave you feeling rejuvenated.

Massage Therapy

Hot Stone Therapy

I am a hot stone specialist. This simply means I have advanced training in using healing hot stones as part of my massage sessions. I utilize warmed basalt stones in many of my treatments to give profound relaxation and deep pain relief to my clients. The stones provide soothing comfort to my clients even when they have serious pain because the heat and stones are healing and allow muscles to truly relax so that more effective work can be accomplished. Unlike other therapists, I do not simply move the stones across a client’s skin – I actually work with the stones. So, in other words to do deep tissue work of varying degrees.

We understand what it is like to get your first massage and we know how to put clients at ease. Since our messages are customizable, if you want to ease into this new experience with work just on your back, neck, shoulders, and feet, then that is fine.

Lastly, our clients get the very best in pampering.
