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, 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 for expectant mothers is back pain. Prenatal massage services may be just what you need for for relief and comfort.
- Back Pain Relief
- Fewer Headaches
- Better Circulation
- Reduced Swelling
- Improved Sleep
What To Expect At Your Visit
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.
Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment
You may also choose to book an adjustment with a prenatal chiropractor at the same time. Massage cannot always alleviate all of the aches and pains of a typical pregnancy, especially if there are alignment issues.
Many women want natural, drug-free pain relief in the form of both chiropractic care and massage therapy. 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.
