MindBody Med in Seattle, WA offers prenatal and pregnancy massage. Whether you’re suffering from the usual aches and pains of pregnancy, or you need relief from headaches or insomnia, a prenatal massage is an essential and beneficial therapy for expectant mothers.

The Stresses Of Pregnancy

Pregnancy puts the body through many grueling changes for nine long months. Ligaments loosen, bones feel achy, and that’s not even touching the hormonal changes. Increased blood volume and surges of pregnancy hormones can lead to headaches, nausea, insomnia, and more. All of these changes can affect spinal alignment and cause other symptoms of pain.

Relief For The Mom-To-Be

All the extra weight and the shift in gravity during pregnancy can wreak havoc on your spine, too. One of the most common complaints of expectant mothers is back pain. Prenatal massage services may be just what you need for relief and comfort.

What To Expect From A Prenatal Massage

You might be wondering what to expect from your prenatal massage appointment. The first step is always to ensure you are a good candidate for pregnancy massage. Your massage therapist will ask about your medical history and current complaints.

Assuming you are healthy, your pregnancy massage will often be conducted while you lay on your side, or in a massage chair. Your experienced massage therapist will know how to proceed and what will work best for both your comfort and safety.

The most common massage techniques used during pregnancy are Swedish, deep tissue, and Shiatsu. Your massage therapists will go over all of your options to ensure a soothing and positive experience.

Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment

You may also choose to book an adjustment with a prenatal chiropractic adjustment at the same time. Massage cannot always alleviate all of the aches and pains of a typical pregnancy, especially if there are alignment issues. There are many advantages to getting an adjustment while pregnant and you can receive both services from us.

  • Natural, Drug-free Pain Relief
  • Relieve Sciatic Nerve Pain
  • Control Morning Sickness & Nausea
  • Turn Breech Baby
  • Shorter Labor & Delivery

That’s one of the many benefits of choosing MindBody Med as your pregnancy chiropractor. Your safety and the safety of your baby are always our top priority.
